My First Trip to Scott's in Atlanta!

For several years, I have been a bit ashamed of the fact that I had never been to Scott's in Atlanta.  But during a quick visit to the ATL this weekend, I was able to squeeze in a successful trip to Scott's on Saturday! 


I had been to the Metrolina Expo show before here in Charlotte, but I found Scott's to be better edited and more in line with my style.  Apparently the best time to go to Scott's is Thursday morning as the dealers are unloading.  That is when all the designers go to shop, and they scoop up all of their selections before the pieces even hit the sales floor. 

While I only made a couple of purchases, I took lots of pictures to show you my favorite finds!  So come along, and I'll show you around!

As we walked in the front door, this hand-crafted metal bench caught my eye.  It would be so fabulous at the foot of a bed!

This pair of brass and lucite etageres had already sold.  Otherwise, I may have brought them home!

A pristine pair of Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chairs and ottomans sat patiently by the front door.

If you are a collector, Scott's is the place to go.  From sea shells to silver trophies to foo dogs, it is a fantastic place to look for a special piece to add to your collection.

These pressed flowers were absolutely stunning.  I am always looking for something like this for clients, so now I know where to find it!

They had ferns as well, well-priced and ready for the framer.

Brass birdcages are so glamorous.

Shell boxes remind me of beach vacations as a child.

Fabulous abstract art graced the walls.

Silver silver silver!  I saw so many tables full of gorgeous pieces of silver.  Unfortunately, as you probably know, now is not the time to buy silver.  But these pieces were fun to dream about!

Garden stools aplenty, in every color and size.  Fabulous chinoiserie lamps, too.  But they definitely were not cheap (around $895 for a pair of lamps).

I saw lots of turtle shells.  They make me a little sad, but I just tell myself they were mean snapping turtles...

I almost died over this pair of Venetian glass obelisks.  They were about 6-feet tall and absolutely stunning.  The pair was around $1200, which I think is quite affordable for such fabulous pieces.  If I had a place for them, they would have come home with me for sure.

You know my weakness for all things Palm Beach, and these pineapple lamps were no exception!

This upholstered parsons table and benches is so fab!

More brass and lucite, this time in the form of end tables.

This lucite Greek key coffee table had already sold.  I bet a designer grabbed it.  The copy of I Married Adventure was $165.  MoS Marketplace is a bargain!

A gorgeous but pricey collection of mounted butterflies- around $900.

A collection of fashion sketches would be so pretty in a girl's room or dressing room.

My favorite "find" of the day (already purchased by someone else of course), was this set of solid brass Mies van der Rohe chairs.  They were beyond amazing in person.  They came from an estate in Chevy Chase, but all 8 already sold.  I cannot even imagine the price for 8.  $15k?

This upholstered scroll bench is so pretty for the foot of a bed.

Real deal Beni Ourain rugs. 

I fell in love with this Serge Roche-inspired dining set.  It comes from The Pink Door in Greensboro, which after seeing their selections and meeting the owner, I am DYING to check out.  Have you been?

Stay tuned for what I brought home with me!

I was at scotts on thursday and spotted many of the same things. I talked with the dealer who had those mies chairs. I could NOT believe my eyes. what a find. when I spotted them they were still for sale ( I got there early). you would not believe the price..$345. I was kinda stunned. The dealer agreed that he needed his head examined. I'm sure they didn't last long...donna

I was there Sunday and those cool lucite and brass shelves were still there. Alot of the other things you mentioned were snapped up. I only bought some fabric which I'll be able to cram into my suitcase.

Sarah,
My friend who sells the harem pants is also a wholesale bead distributor. She was also telling me about how much she and her husband love Scott's... You found some pretty awesome things here! I hope to check it out one day and I can't wait to see what you brought home with you :).
