Scott’s part 2


Jul 20, 2011
OK you guys…. I have just a few pictures left of the July show.  But first, I have to tell you that I saw some amazing things at the Mart the last few days.  Can I just tell you how hard it is to NOT purchase things.  You just get stars in your eyes and lose all sense of reality.  Most of the things are not even available for 2-3 months…which is good if you are an instant gratification kind of girl like “moi”.

I attended 5 days and on average 5 hours a day……yes…I will put myself up against anyone in the “shopping arena”…..or in my case “looking” but wishing I was actually stroking checks like I was Warren Buffett.  
So without further delay….
Lets start with these little painted tables…Nice enough and honestly not THAT special right….  $1300 each.  Really….I could paint those blindfolded.  I am sure he got to pack those up and take them back home.
A whole tent full of skins.  I remember the first time I saw them there and asked about the price.  I believe they said something like 350.00 and I looked him square in the eye and said…”that is silly, I can order them all day long on the internet for 150-250″.  You need to lower your prices.  I checked the other day and they were 250.00  People…do your research.

This is a table or African recycled beads.  I bought these for $15 each….
I saw them inside at a booth for $65 each.  Really?
Want some old corbels like mine?????

This had me standing there for five minutes…wondering where I could use it…..
OH gosh people…..do you want?
Thank goodness they did not have 2 of these……
I think I told you they have Chalk paint now……look at those great colors.
Met a really cute artist out of Jacksonville.  She will send her art or bring it to Atlanta [if you are here].  Here are a few other pictures of her work.
She said she can do anything and her prices were very reasonable.
I love how layered her work is.  Her name is Holly Blanton.  904-294-5511.  [email protected]
What about one of these with mirror behind it for a headboard……
Purdy…and I love the skirt.
Hmmm….one 12 x 12 piece of glass tiles for the top of a table……
Look what I got the other day at a consignment shop for $6.00…..glass balls.
OK….as soon as I can organize my pictures there is some really swell eye candy coming up.  
Yeah…it is Wednesday already.
