November 24, 2015 | Friendsgiving

What a long day! We had lots of orders to be filled with the FREE SHIPPING code that is going on all week for Thanksgiving! If you are shopping from your sofa on Thursday, or all the way through the weekend, you get free shipping at Lucysinspired.com! I'm  heading to my Mom's tomorrow and we will be chilling with family all weekend, so the orders will go out on Monday…..or Tuesday!

Sometimes I have to break from the routine. We sell so many more Lucy's Inspired prism necklaces and vintage hardware cuffs than we do one of a kinds. Ashlee helped me out for so long, I got to where I didn't make many. She made them all! She got a full-time and we are LOW! So, I pulled out the bling and the cool hardware pieces and started playing late last night. This is a little snap shot of what I came up with. I love color and I love texture! I don't wear a lot of bling, but I love the way it looks on these pieces!!

The kids are out of school this week and I enlisted a couple of Emma's friends to work for me. Taryn helped out with the shipping and when Sophie got there, they stamped and wrapped prisms and even made a few Lucy's Inspired vintage keyhole necklaces! They were such a big help! We got so much done! I love productive days! 

Tonight was Friendsgiving at Molly's house, aka The Pantry. She is an amazing cook and we all flock to her house when she says she wants to cook dinner for us! She seriously needs to start doing menus for people. My favorites were the brussel sprouts and the wild rice salad. 

The wine was flowing and the selfies were snapping and we were FULL! Full from all the friendships, love and support of each other. It's so nice to know you are surrounded by friends who love you for who you are. I'm thankful for each person in this picture. 


Lucy's Visit to Scott's Antique Market

Where are you on the 2nd weekend of each month? If you are within driving distance, you should be at Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta! I usually make it from Birmingham 4 or 5 times a year. I recruited a friend to go with me over the weekend and we found a few treasures! 

Lucysinspired: Lucy and Ashlee

We did stop in at the Atlanta America's Mart on Thursday to hit a couple of my favorite jewelry suppliers and see a few friends that I don't get to see often. Lucky for us, the Haven Blogging Conference was the same weekend and we decided to stay at that hotel so we could play with those friends, too! It was a full trifecta!!

Most of the showrooms from the Mart won't let you take photos, so there's nothing to show from there. I know. Sad face. I will take a few pics of what I bought to tease you with what I will be creating Lucy's Lockets with in the next few weeks and do a little post! 

We made our way to Scott's early Friday morning and found lots of fun things that all of us junkers love so much!! 

Lucysinspired: Crates from Scott's Antique Market

Crates are very popular and have been for the past few years. We've been using them for many reasons! I love to find them with bright advertising, but these two have special meaning and that gives me a MUCH BETTER reason to buy them! Starr happens to be Ashlee Moore's middle name and my husband's initials are RC! Rock on! These two were mine after haggling with Brian in one of the outdoor booths. He had many crates and I'm a little disappointed that I didn't buy more! ugh. 

Lucysinspired: Ashlee playing croquet

We got stuck inside the "outside" building because of rain. Downpours of rain!! It's not a very big building and I had scoured every bucket for chain and vintage hardware. There was nothing else to buy! We were getting a little goofy, but how cute does Ashlee look ready to play croquet!!

Lucysinspired: Vintage Advertising

Vintage advertising signs are everywhere in the outdoor lot at Scott's. I loved the colors on this one and those prices! You will see replicas in lots of booths, but there are plenty of originals and sometimes, just sometimes, you will get a good deal on one!

Lucysinspired: Vintage Screen Door

Is this the back door? I'm with the Hippies! 

Lucysinspired: Haul from Scott's Antique Market

This is how we do it. This is how we do it. It's Friday night….oh wait. Always a song lyric in my head. This is how Joel and I do it. I give him a huge pile of goodies and he separates them into smaller piles by price. Then, we add it all up, take out one or two and throw in a few more, he gives me a price, I tell him how much I'll pay and we meet in the middle. I was born to do this y'all. I LOVE to negotiate!!

So, next time you want to go to Atlanta for the weekend, make sure it's the second weekend! You want to spend a day roaming inside and out. Did I mention there are two different buildings? One on each side of I-285. It's really hard for me to make both buildings. I always go to the one with the most outdoor booths. They seem to have better prices, but if it rains, they all cover up their tables with tarps and don't always come back in time for shopping! I found an RC crate under a table that said, " Me and my RC." Hello. that would have been stacked right on top of those other two finds!! 

If you are dying that you missed this one and there is a whole 'nother month before the next one…..There is another antique market on the third weekend of each month, the Lakewood 400 Antiques Market. I've never been, but can't wait to get there soon!
