Friday Faves: Collecting Ironstone

Happy Friday!  The weekend is upon us, and the second weekend of the month is always a favorite because it means one thing... treasure hunting at Scott's Antique Market.  Known as the "world's largest indoor antique show", Scott's Antique Market never disappoints. Designers, collectors and vintage lovers across the southeast descend upon Atlanta's Exposition Center south of the city the second weekend of each month to scour the wares of hundreds of vendors.  If you have never attended Scott's, click here for a great photo tour by Rhoda Vickers of Southern Hospitality Blog.

Our mission this weekend: hunting for vintage ironstone dinnerware.
