German Souvenirs at Scott Antique Market

I just had to take a break from sharing travel pictures to tell you about the terrific souvenirs I found this weekend at Scott Antique Market. In case you aren't familiar with SAM, it's a very large once-a-month antique show in Atlanta and Columbus, OH. I live a few minutes away from the Atlanta location which is so convenient for me. I try to stop in every month just to poke around and this month I struck gold!

While in Germany, I fell in love with the lovely German Roemer wine glasses, but that's not all. I especially loved the beautiful white china used in restaurants in Bavaria. I did some shopping but refrained from buying glass items, mainly because I didn't want to deal with packing fragile items.

Well Saturday was my lucky day for finding international goods! For just $20 I bought (6) etched German Roemer wine glasses, (3) porcelain-handled Sheffield serving pieces (UK), (1) Rosenthal tea cup and saucer (Bavaria) and (1) Apilco Ramekin (France). Can you believe it! Just had to share photos of a few of the items.
Be sure to check out more treasured finds at Rhoda's Thifty Treasures. It's a great way to start your Monday!

  1. JOJO, I was at Scott's on Friday and I swear I looked at the 3 piece serving pieces you picture, but didn't buy them. I did get some wonderful Harlequin China!!

  6. Hmmm, packing fragile purchases for home can be a nightmare. Last time we were in Malta we had the strangest things all wrapped up in mucky socks and stuffed in shoes. Fortunately it all made it back to England.

  7. Holly Cow I was there on Sat for the first time with my husband and I ran into Rose with her husband. Looks like all the blog gals were there and now I see Linda was there on Friday. It was our first time going and we went to one building but were not into so much old silver and over priced furniture so we left. Sue said I should have gone to the other building but what did I know? I would say next time but don't think I can ever get my husband to go back again. Lucky you to find some German souvenirs right in your own back yard:) Much better then paying in Euros!
