We all know Margaret never misses a chance to for creative inspiration, no matter where she travels. Recently she found time during a wedding weekend in Atlanta to visit Scott Antique Market, and to visit the Egyptian ballroom at the Fox Theater. Here’s here trip report:

“Recently Rob and I went to Atlanta for a wedding, and the wedding happened to coincide with the the Scott Antique Market, so we went a day early to take advantage of the Thursday shopping (early birds).  Rob, loves the thrill of the hunt and is a great help when it comes to loading and packing!

I hadn’t been to the Scott Antique Market in about 15 years, so I really didn’t know what to expect.  Now that we have expanded our office space, I can better accommodate some found items in my front room, so I thought I would give it a try.  Here are some of the treasures we found:

We found so many wonderful things that I had to ride back to the hotel with things on my feet and on my lap. Luckily, my son was in town for the wedding too and I got to transfer a few things to his car so I didn’t have to ride home to Charleston on the roof!

We’re working on tab on our website called “Found Items” where you’ll be able to shop for some of these one-of-a-kind wonders. Stay tuned!

To top off a wonderful weekend, and my creative deep dive, we got to attend a party at the beautiful Egyptian Room at the Fox Theater. Wow!
