Meet Our Awesome Neighbors

Cheryl & I love selling at Scott Antique Market for so many reasons. Of course, we love, Love, LOVE our customers, but another great thing is meeting so many talented dealers. There are great dealers all over the building there, but we wanted to introduce you to our little corner at J9. By the way...these dealers are all as camera shy as Cheryl & I are!

Right next to us are David & Susan. They bring in the most awesome French country pieces month after month. David is also sooo talented with a paint brush! The grey chest on the right Susan brought in is awesome! But you gotta watch Susan if it gets a little slow...she's got a mischevious streak! You can find both of these talented dealers at Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta, and David is at City Antiques in Roswell as well.

This beautiful booth belongs to Debbie and Bobby. You'll find a wonderful mix in their booth of Italian tole, needlepoint, gorgeous tole trays, silverplate and antique paper goods, too. They were long time dealers at the old Lakewood (..sigh..we miss that place!), and we love being set up right across the aisle from them. You can also find their items at Woodstock Antiques.

Jonathan is just behind us on I9...this fabulous lot of antique hardware is a small sample of what you'll see in his gorgeous booth. He has lovely French pillows, beautifully painted furniture and the kind of stuff that you can't wait to get home & place in just the right spot! You can also find his items at Canton Street Antiques in Roswell.

This lovely booth belongs to one of the sweetest dealers around. Amy has some "photo shoot ready" decorative items that will make your rooms seem like you just stepped into one of those gorgeous decorating magazines. LOVE this concrete bird bath still life she's created here! She does interior design as well...over the top talented!

This booth is just across from Amy & belongs to Brian. He creates the most breath-taking floral arrangements we've ever seen! He uses the natural preserved floral pieces and each creation is more beautiful than the last. A "must-visit" booth!

This piece was my favorite thing, (I think...there are sooo many favorites for me) this month, anyway...This creation comes from Lee. She's a new addition to J9 and we're hoping she'll get a permanent spot here. So creative...these plants are all air plants & are apparantly super easy to maintain. Just a spritz here & there and you're good. Don't ask me....I'm the one with the black thumb, but come see Lee & she'll hook you up! She's also selling her handmade purses and has some other ideas as well for future shows. Can't wait to see what else she brings.

You can get an idea why we love it at Scott! These dealers are just the best and Cheryl & I are constantly awe-struck by them. The icing on the cake is that they're just the nicest bunch of people you'd ever want to meet.....all of them....and this is just our little row!! Make time in your schedule to come meet them for yourselves...I know you'll love them just as much as we do!
