In May, my favorite Partner In Finds (PIF) and I headed out for a day of shopping fun at the Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, VA. To our extreme delight, we stumbled into their Spring Market. There were 200 dealers outside the store, and the store’s Design House (house full of fantastic room vignettes, everything for sale) was also open. We could not believe our luck!
At the time, I was in the planning stages of the great big kitchen/dining room/whole first floor remodel/update extravaganza. I was on the lookout for a new dining table, counter stools and items to decorate the new space. As we hadn’t even started construction yet, I unfortunately wasn’t quite ready to fill the car with finds.
I did snap a few inspiration photos:
And I did buy a few things:
This Union Jack mirror was intended for the living room when I bought it. Once it got home, I ended up hanging it in a tiny hallway between the kids’ bedrooms and their bathroom. It’s an unexpected fun note when you turn the corner and see it, and the mirror aspect really opens up the small space.
I also bought this little cast iron baby duck as a joke for my husband. Until he adds product every morning, his hair exactly resembles duck fuzz on a baby duck. The joke was on me though – I bought it early in the day, and carrying a cast iron duck around all day (even a little one), is not so funny. But I survived and now the duck resides next to the fireplace. He’s so small he’s hardly noticed, but when he catches my eye, it always makes me smile.
PIF did not leave empty handed either. She bought this lovely table for her upstairs hall:
This weekend (Nov 8-10), The Old Lucketts Store is holding their Holiday Open House, complete with an open Design House and 60 additional vendors. PIF and I are VERY excited to return to Lucketts and see what we find this time around!
