Two cavernous buildings are filled with displays of antiques and collectibles with over 2800 exhibitor booths making this the largest series of indoor antique shows in the world. This place is a great source for design inspiration, vintage fur, apparel, and accessories, as well as old magazines, post cards, and other great images.
3 Miles East of Atlanta Airport
1 mile East off I-75 on I-285 at Exit 55 (Jonesboro Rd.)
The Atlanta Expo Centers split I- 285, so a right or left
turn off of the Exit ramp onto Jonesboro Road will get you there.
Admission $5 for the whole weekend (click here for a coupon for $1 off admission.)
If you only have an hour or two to spend, absolutely do not miss a visit to Love Train Antiques:

Permanently housed in a separate building just in front of the expo center (3640 Jonesboro Rd), this place is full of inspiration and is an excellent place to study interesting proportion, color and texture. It isn’t open on the weekend – just on Friday which is, really, the best time to go to the Scott Antique Market, anyway.
