Georgia Home and Antique Events that you don’t want to miss in 2023!
I get a lot of questions from my Instagram followers about where to find good antique store and events. I want to share several upcoming events that you will want to add to your calendar.
January 20-21, 2023 Cathedral Giving by Design
Where: Atlanta, Georgia
What is it: Formerly an antique show, Cathedral Giving by Design is now a tour of homes and a series of lectures by professionals related to the interior design field.
Tickets: Required, purchase online HERE.
Tips: I’m disappointed that this event no longer includes an antique show, but the lectures are a hidden treasure. Immerse yourself in the world of interior design and treat yourself to one of these lecture events. Dress comfortably, but nicely. These are great networking opportunities if you work in the design field.
February 23-26, 2023 Thomasville Antiques Show
Where: Thomasville, Georgia (The Biscuit Company 219 Oak Street, Thomasville, GA)
What is it: an antiques show, lectures, workshops, and party
Tickets: Required, purchase online HERE.
Tips: This is a “ladies who lunch” antiques show. Don’t expect a “picker’s paradise.” I highly recommend purchasing a boxed lunch, which can be purchased on the same page that you buy admission tickets. Noteworthy: a Junior Floral Workshop for 2nd – 10th graders.
March 10-11, 2023 Peaches to the Beaches Yard Sale
Where: All along GA HWY 341 in South Georgia
What is it: yard sales in individual yards, as well as groups in parking lots.
Tickets: No tickets are needed.
Tips: Stop your car when you want to browse for anything including the kitchen sink. You’re bound to find treasures! Plan your route ahead of time and book accommodations early. Bring cash! Since many of the sellers are individuals in their driveways, don’t expect to pay with check or cards.
April 14-15, 2023 Madison Tour of Homes
Where: Historic Madison, Georgia
What is it: The self-guided tour will feature a selection of Madison’s treasured historic and modern homes. You can experience the living history of the town while strolling through the city’s architecturally significant homes as they come into full bloom!
Tickets: Required, $30 per person through April 12th; $40 the day of. Purchase tickets online soon HERE.
Tips: There are a lot of great antique stores in and around Madison, as well as some really good places to eat. Madison is a very walkable city, so if you are able to get a good parking spot, you can leave your car for the day and take advantage of all the area has to offer.
April 28-30, 2023 Vintage Market Days
Where: Georgia National Fairgrounds, Perry, Georgia
What is it: A market for old and new. Expect vintage, antique, art, plants, and crafts.

May 6-7, 2023 May Market at Rose Lawn Museum

May 18-20, 2023 22nd Annual Madison Antiques Show and Sale
Where: Madison-Morgan Cultural Center, Madison, Georgia
What is it: Antiques Show and Sale will be featuring over 20 dealers from across the nation who will be displaying the best in American antiques and accessories predominantly from the South. Items range from furniture and vintage linens to silver, pottery, and fine art.
Tips: There is a *free* lecture before the show opens on Friday and on Saturday. Take advantage of that! Also, Madison is a very walkable, beautiful city. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that we go several times a year to antique shop and eat in Madison. Be sure to drive down Eatonton Road to the Madison Flea Market. It is the most affordable antique store in town, and where you’ll likely find me when I’m in Madison.
I hope you are able to attend one of these events! If you see me there, please stop me and say hello. If you go, take some pictures and tag me on Instagram! I’d love to see your adventure.
