Fall Antique Festivals in the South

Hooray! Hooray! One of my favorite times of year is here -- fall. Not only does it mean mulling spices and pumpkin everything, it also means fall antique festival season is here. And that, my friends, is almost as yummy as a pumpkin spice muffin with my pumpkin spice latte while my pumpkin spice candle is burning. Ahhhhhh, sweet heaven on earth...antique festivals.
Below is a list of festivals that are on my radar. I am more than happy to add your favorite to my list and get it some publicity. Please email or leave a comment and I'll add it to my list. The only requirements are that #1 It's an antique festival #2 It's in the fall. #3 It's in the South. (Nothing against our neighbors to the north of the Mason Dixon Line, but that's the theme of my blog, after all.)
Crabapple Fest Antique & Art Festival (One of my faves! One day only.)
Milton, GA

October 5th 10-6

Clinch River Antiques Festival

Clinton, TN

I hope you have a blast antiquing this fall. Be sure to stop by my Facebook page and post some pictures of the treasures you get.



  1. I've been to the Elijay Apple Fest. Actually showed up a weekend too late, but still was able to walk around the sweet little mountain town and enjoy the shops.

    1. It's a tiny treasure of a town, isn't it? One year we went intending to go to the Apple Festival, but had so much fun in the shops that we never made it to the festival. LOL
