Diamonds on bracelets, candlesticks in pairs,
Bright silver goblets and rows of fine chairs,
Stunning Persian rugs handmade of wool strings,
These are a few of our favorite things.

Once a month vendors fill two huge buildings at the Atlanta Expo Centers with their amazing pieces hoping they will become favorites of yours.

Roy Leverett, who has been a vendor since 1995, sells mahogany and oak furniture. One of his pieces was a utilitarian piece: a filing cabinet with four shelves and a drawer tucked inside. The piece was made out of oak and was from Grand Rapids, Michigan around 1890-1910. The piece was selling for $925.

Standing among flatware, goblets, candlesticks and other pieces of sterling silver, Henry Weaver, filling in for his father at their booth, described a six-piece Chantilly silver tea set by Gorham. The pieces were of relief silver design, meaning the details are pushed out from the inside creating a three-dimensional effect. The set was dated around the early 1900s and was selling for $9,900, a fraction of retail pricing which can go as high as $20,000.

18kt gold with diamonds snake bracelet

Vendor Barbara Talbert was selling this stunning 18kt gold with diamonds snake bracelet for $6,500 at Scott Antique Markets in Atlanta.

David Stark spoke of a stunning Thomas Brooks mirror he sold to a collector. Thomas Brooks was a furniture maker in the mid-19th century that became famous for his Victorian Renaissance Revival style. The piece sold at the market for $1,150.

Antique and estate jewelry vendor Barbara Talbert, a vendor at Scott’s for 18 years, spoke of many of her pieces fondly as she showed them off. She had a gorgeous 45ct aqua ring with diamonds surrounding the center stone in her case. The ring was dated from the 1940s and was selling for $14,000. Another unique piece Talbert was selling was an 18kt gold snake bracelet with diamond eyes and diamond accents on the head and down the spine. The piece was selling for $6,500.
