Hi Everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine was relaxing, hanging out with friends, shopping and walking/house hunting with Ernesto. (nothing yet...)
On Saturday, Smita, Lucy, Liz and I went to check out Scott's Antique Market. Ernesto and I went a looooong time ago when it was still at Fort McPherson. It's now located south of Atlanta in Jonesboro at the Atlanta Expo Center. Held on the 2nd weekend of every month, the market is an event. It is so big, it took us 4 hours and we only got through one building.
Ernesto's last words as I stepped out of the house with my girlfriends was "Don't bring home and shit!" ha!
I did see several things I wanted to bring home, but I resisted, because really I don't have anywhere to put new things. I will, however, be coming back to Scott's with a truck once we buy our house.
It's probably harder when you have a certain something in mind. For example lucy wanted a milk glass cake stand and an old gold watch. Seh didn't find either. I wasn't looking for anything specific, but I went home with more inspiration for decorating. Like I need any more.....
I saw this white one and was sad that I couldn't get it....although the price needed to be bargained down from $300 asking price.
Craigslist though, you can find some good pieces for less!
A platinum Art Deco beauty from the 1920's-30's. It has 3 center diamonds and sapphire accents. You know we are having a sapphire baby, right??? Wouldn't this be a great gift for the new mother? This is definately the shape I am looking for, but I would rather have one or two of the center stones be sapphire instead of diamonds. (just in case you are reading this mi amorrrrrrr :)
If you live in Atlanta,or close to it, you will want to check out Scott's! It's the second weekend of everymonth. You can find all the info on their website.
