Weekend Edition: January 18-20

Ready for another weekend of strange weather? Brave the rain/cold/warm and make it to one of these recommended outings...

Gogo: Nature Transformed at the High Museum of Art
Gogo Ferguson creates stunning jewelry, decor and art pieces inspired by her upbringing and current residence on Cumberland Island. Alligators, rattlesnakes, boar, shells and other natural wonders figure prominently into her work (shop HERE), inspired heavily by the beauty of Georgia's barrier island. Ferguson is a descendant of the Carnegie family and an integral part of the island's thriving and elegant Greyfield Inn.

Don't miss what will be a beautiful exhibit - And take your mothers, aunts, grandmothers and friends!

When: January 19 - July 7, 2013

Where: High Museum of Art
            1280 Peachtree Street, N.E.
            Atlanta, Georgia 30309

Cost: $12 - $16.50 (Member Free). I highly recommend joining - It's a fantastic value and support one of Atlanta and the South's most important cultural landmarks!

Boutique Bargains Clearance Sale - January 2013
This has long been one of the best Atlanta "secrets" for finding insane deals from the city's best boutiques. If the sale racks of all your favorites stores decided to have a party, this would be it, and you're invited. So grab those checkbooks and get yourself to Buckhead. It takes some digging and patience - and don't be shy with the group changing room - but you're sure to find something wonderful!

When: January 18-19 (10 a.m. - 6 p.m.)

Where: Former Buckhead Container Store 
            3255 Peachtree Rd.
            Atlanta, GA 30305

Cost: Free (Shopping: Cash or check only!)

More Info: Available online or at 770-433-2989

Lakewood 400 Antiques Market
Long since departed from the Lakewood Amphitheater off I-75, this is still a great and sizeable market for finding well-priced furniture, jewelry, records and more. It's a trek from the city, but worth, it puts you almost at the North Georgia Outlets if a little discount shopping is calling your name. If you haven't checked it out yet, do so!

When: January 18, 19 and 20 (Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
