A Little Fall Shopping!

Fall is here, children are back in school and the holidays are just around the corner! This is of the utmost importance to antiques dealers. All antique dealers love October, especially my good friend Sue. Sue, reminds me of “CRUELLA DEVILLE” from “101 Dalmatians” Not because she kidnaps puppies, but because she has dark hair, wears big sunglasses, and she knows how to use her gas petal. She will not let anything get in her way when she is on her way to the antiques shops. She is stocked! Sue has a vast amount of Papier Mache, tole, porcelains, dresser set items, and a little bit of everything else.

In the beginning, Sue and I would do shows together until, during one show, the fire Marshall separated us because customers could not walk down the aisle. Anyway, if you happen to be in Atlanta the second weekend of the month, you should check out Scott’s Antique Market, located 3 miles east of the Atlanta airport. The show actually starts on Thursdays—the earlier the better (Thursday is dealer day). Check it out. Cruella (Sue) is in the north building, up front, in the C3 section. You won’t miss her!

I have been on a mission for a table just like this!
