Weekend wander

I got a chance to run downtown to the ACC craft show (no photos allowed) this weekend, and hit Scott's Market on the way back. I only made it through the North building before running out of time, but was totally inspired by what I saw....

How cool is the galvanized ? thing in the photo above with the old tintypes on the front! Love it!

Also love this old door with the lights made out of galvanized strips and burlap.

Unique idea to nail some metal patches on a table top.....wonder if they were added to hide something, or as an artistic touch? Regardless.....very interesting!

Galvanized or industrial metal ANYTHING is so hot now, and you always see the best of it at this market. (affording it is another matter....)

Interesting lights in the above pic, and wonderful rusty coils below.....of course I had to have one of those.

These letters would be great with holes drilled and retro lights added.

The perfect garden accessory!

Interesting old overhead light strips! Great possibilities!

There are still lots of French-themed booths.

I would have wanted to buy these cages that were, thankfully, already sold.

Love the repurposed galvanized basin.

Where CAN one buy these large sheets of zinc for covering tables anyway??

This metal mesh thing would make such a cool light!

Oh yeah I'll take one of those....just throw it in the trunk! (the LION I mean)

I wonder what goodies I missed in the South building? I may have to make the trek back down next month!

Love the oak table with the metal patches. Reminds me of antique make dos with their metal staples holding glass or bone china together.

wow! What a treasure trove of items. Love the industrial look. It is not a big part of my home but I like a touch of it here and there. I always think of it in a Soho loft or a spare living area. Love it! xo Diana

I am editing this to add. Do you know that you have double word verification on? I have tried to post twice now and not been able to read the letters. Just thought maybe you didn't know it is on. I will try posting again~

I miss doing Scott market.

The metal thingy that you thought would make a great light, is a fish scaler. Put you fish in it, pull it behind the boat and it scaled the fish for you! Gross! Right?
