You can just imagine how much fun we had! Yes, we did…a blast! There were over 30 of us who met up with Eddie and Jaithan on Saturday to shop at Scott’s Antiques Market. What fun to get to meet Eddie Ross in person. He is as fun and cute as you can imagine he would be, full of personality and life! Of course, I didn’t waste any time getting a pic and schmoozing with Eddie.
Everyone arrived in the January chill and I think we were all excited to be there. I met a couple of ladies who read my blog all the time and it was so much fun to meet them. Hello Melissa, Carrie, and another lady who I’ve forgotten her name, but thank you ALL so much for introducing yourselves to me. Please leave me a comment sometime!
My blog friend, Judy from Gracious Southern Living (holding the camera here) went with me and we just had the best time. We had to leave Birmingham around 5 a.m., but we were troopers and made it over there in plenty of time, wide-eyed and ready to shop.
I found out that many of us drove a few hours to get there. Here we all are listening to Eddie tell us about the morning.
We decided to start with the outside, where there are tons of architectural items for sale. Lots of chippy old pieces and we all enjoyed looking around seeing what bargains we could find.
Just lots of architectural things to be found.
Eddie showing what could be done with this piece. We all had our eyes on different things.
Me, I loved this cowhide chair. Isn’t it the coolest?
I did find a really neat architectural piece, which I have the perfect spot for and of course, I’ll share it with you when I get it in place. My hubby will not understand this shabby thing, but he’ll get over it. This piece was $55, which I thought was a pretty good price and it’s quite large.
Check out the vintage Christmas trees. Very cute, but at $55 a little steep. I told Eddie this reminded me of him.
For you blue and white lovers, a whole row of platters.
And of course, tole platters always grab my attention.
These were very old wax impressions, which were really neat and would look very nice framed.
Eddie has a great smile and an infectious personality.
Do you remember this guy from Top Design? Kerry, a designer who lives in Atlanta, joined us and he was SO much fun!
Vintage eggs and Birdsnest prints.
And I always have to price the Staffordshire dogs. This pair was $150, a steal the seller told me!
Eddie, doing his thang….
Vintage buttons in this booth.
Furniture galore, you can find just about any style you can imagine, at all price points.
As well as this English chest.
Pretty vignette of garden architecture.
You just want to take everything home with you.
This was a metal bergere chair, which we thought was interesting. We were joking with Kerry about it bringing back memories of the chair competition they had on Top Design.
We all parted around noon and Judy and I went to have lunch at the food court and Eddie, Jaithan and Kerry joined us and we had the best time just chatting it up and getting to know them better. Eddie has some exciting things coming up, so you’ll have to stay tuned to his blog to find out all the scoop. The guy is so talented and SO energetic and I know is going to go far with whatever he gets involved in. It’s bound to be fun!
We had an absolutely wonderful day and I’m so glad we got in on the fun! Thanks Eddie and Jaithan for the great day and memories, I’m sure we will all take home with us. Til next time, remember the Southern Belles!

That is so funny that BOTH you and Judy took pictures of my chairs! Now I know I’ve got good taste if you two noticed them! Went to Calico Corners today to get some fabric samples. I’ll post pictures when I get them done.
Sorry it’s taken me so long to say how great it was to meet you in person!!! you are such a sweet and loving person and I am so glad that we are friends!!! can’t wait to do it again!!! next time lets do NYC!!!
So cool,your famous girl!! I love the Scott’s antique mall when it swings by here each month. I think it is the same one. Everything looks great, it does take a lot of time to walk though though.

My daughter and Judy’s granddaughter take ballet together, and I was so excited when I heard about this trip you were taking. It sounds like it was a blast, and I enjoyed looking at all the photos. I think I could spend a week there!
