Barn Light Electric

Lights made back in the day of our parents and grandparents were durable, of high quality and built to last. Too often, in the desire to mass market with a lower price point, we've lost touch with the standard that once was and have settled instead for what is. Couple, Bryan and Donna Scott of Titusville, Florida saw this gap in the market and decided to fill it with their own brand of lights using only the highest quality, commercial grade materials. 

Bryan and Donna's shop, Barn Light Electric, focuses on barn style lighting, which, thanks to the desire for handcrafted, American made products and the rise in demand for industrial style furniture, has been a huge success. 

Many of their barn lights are built for exterior walls and porches and just as many work for inside too- to add a cool masculine vibe to an office, workshop, bath or bedroom. So many good ones to pick from, with lots of customizable options too. 

And truth be told- these lights work well for the women too. (Check out their gorgeous Veronica Valencia collection) Plus, their ever expanding line includes desk lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers, pendants and quite a bit more. So check out their site to peruse all the stylish options and feel safe in knowing, whatever you do decide on, it will be of the highest quality and built to last. Just like they used to make 'em.

Scott Antique Market

My childhood friend Eileen, along with myself, have lived in Atlanta a combined total of 30 years. Yet neither one of us has ever been to the infamous Scott Antique Market. Until yesterday. And it's all so ridiculous as it took us just 15 minutes to get there from our homes. What took us so long? Who knows. The important thing is, we made it...

The Scott Antique Market is the largest indoor antique market in the world. It's divided up into two areas, North and South, and situated just east of the Atlanta airport. Call me biased, but I liked the South side better...

This is a scene that makes my sister gasp with excitement. The South side has a much larger outdoor market than the North side, with lots of salvaged goods to rifle through. Old doors, chairs, tools, lights, you name it, they have it. 

And lots of items are oversized, particularly shutters, doors, mirrors...  

Both the North and the South buildings have a combined 3000 plus vendors inside. They are both big spaces but not overwhelming. You can get through each building in 1-3 hours, depending how much you like to meander. 

Eileen was eyeing this lamp and for good reason. It's quite a unique piece. The owner of this booth didn't have a light bulb handy but says when it's plugged in, the light glows through the top piece, which is actually made of glass. The price was $122...

As I recently posted about Kantha quilts, I was excited to stumble upon this vendor, Darjeeling Express. They had hundreds of Kanthas to choose from, all of various sizes and well priced from $50-$75. (North building) 

It wasn't hard to spot Christopher Bailey's work from Industrial Chic. He's based in Panama City Beach, Florida and makes lots of manly, industrial pieces. (South building) 

I couldn't find the owner of this booth but I wanted to know the price of this fork! The supersized silverware would be amazing decor if you had a big enough kitchen, which I don't, or just fun for a kid's room or a hallway. They're playful and certainly a conversation piece. 

Scott Antique Market opens its doors to the public the second weekend of every month. Which means, if you're in or around Atlanta this weekend, you need to make your way over. Eileen and I both agreed 30 years is way too long to wait. It's just $5 per person to get in and the parking is free. Gotta love the South. Happy antiquing...
