DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY 10/10/2010

We changed our route from GA to NC just to go to this event. We paid out ten dollars to get it and started through the booths. WHAT A WASTE. About a third of booths were not open. Most of the the booths and next to nothing in them! And of the JUNK they had, it was over priced. It was a JOKE. It was JUNK! We collect antiques and enjoy the hunt as much as the find, but this was neither. It is a SHAM. DO NOT GO! more

Buyer beware at Scott's Antique Market 8/1/2010

Caveat Emptor at the Scott Antique Market in Atlanta. I spent an entire, thorough day there and spotted numerous fakes of various types of antiques and collectibles. Altered pieces, etc. Sellers misrepresenting what they're selling, giving wrong ages and origins of items, etc. I even got taken myself on a couple lower priced items and I thought I was savvy. And I wonder, if so much suspect stuff and sellers are there, why don't they self-police this? People are openly selling reproductions with out informing the buyers. So be very, very careful buying here. I suspected even more fakery and chicanery that I didn't have the expertise to confirm. Also, I know the value of different stuff, and I couldn't get people to drop a dime on their over-priced items. They won't barter or budge. I walked away from numerous conversations in disgust because they just wouldn't give a single inch. So I spent little money. They were really out to take people. Some great wooden furniture, though. Unusual eastern items, but again, be careful. If you're a re-seller of lower and middle-range jewelry, this place could be a gold mine for you (if you can get any of the tightwads to spin you a deal). I've never seen more costume jewelry and I've been to the America's Mart in Atlanta. I'd say perhaps a quarter of the dealers were selling jewelry. I went to one in late May or early June I believe, and I didn't see a great attendance or much buying. Maybe if they'd loosen up their pricing, they'd do better. Pros: Unusual, spectacular items and woods, much jewelry Cons: Counterfeits, Reproductions, tight and shady sellers more

Very nice facility - Very high prices 10/10/2009

Quite an interesting place to look around and spend an afternoon. Most merchants are very nice. Obvious good quality of merchandise such as furniture. Prices indoor on both food and merchandise seemed to be high for what I would expect at a once a month antique market. The outdoor merchants were in my experience more reasonable. Pros: Nice people to deal with Cons: Prices seem to be more in line with Tiffany's more

Huge Selection--Decent Prices 11/8/2007

First off, let me say that this market is HUGE. You could spend all day looking around these two exhibition halls. The sheer size of the market ensures that you will probably find just about any antique piece you're looking for here. While I have noticed that many of the booths are overpriced, if you are an educated buyer and willing to negotiate a bit, there are certainly bargains to be had. We have had particularly good luck buying large pieces of furniture here. If price is a primary concern, try going on Sunday, as the vendors will slash prices toward the end of the weekend in order to move merchandise. Pros: selection, variety, vendors are pleasant, generally fair prices Cons: no airconditioning, delivery not always easy, some vendors are overpriced more

Unique Finds! Fun Merchants! Can Haggle Prices! 10/18/2006

I can't wait for this once a month event. You never know what you will find, and each booth is totally different, from merchandise, presentation, and the wonderful individuals who show their wares. Being a jewelry freak, so help me, I always find something I have to bring home. And most of the fun is the haggle of the price with the merchants. Such great people. It's like seeing old friends once a month. An Atlanta tradition. Pros: Quality Merchndise Selection, Wonderful Staff! Cons: Too Far Away From My Home, But That's O.K. more
