A visit to Old Luckett’s Store part 1

Posted on November 7,2011 by Jennifer

I’m a big fan of Miss Mustard Seed and the Graphics Fairy blogs. Lately they’ve been chatting about getting ready for the Luckett‘s Open House and I didn’t know what Luckett’s was so I did a little digging online and when I realized it was a store only a couple of hours from where I live my friend Dara and I (and my little one!) decided it was time for a road trip! Bright and early this past Saturday morning we set off not quite sure what we would find but enjoying the beautiful sunshine and time together.

Well, what a treat it was! I’ve named this post ‘part 1′ because I took a few zillion photos during our visit and there’s just no way to include them all in one post! I am so excited to share this visit with you so let’s get started! When we arrived at Luckett’s these bright and cheery red doors greeted us! {above photo} Aren’t they adorable?! I love it!! We waited our turn for a parking space (we were one of hundreds of visitors that day) and hopped out of the car as quickly as we could to join the shoppers!

Our first stop was this little village of outbuildings, each overflowing with the biggest and coolest collection of distressed bits & pieces! From old windows and doors to claw foot tubs and mantles – they had it all!!!

{Left} I love the old columns and that architectural piece with the house numbers – I don’t know what it’s called but it looks like something out of a storybook!… {Middle} and check out the “wall of old windows” – how fabulous?! {Right} I was positively swooning over the muted pinks in this third photo – sigh! how lovely!{Above} The barn red tones paired with the distressed creams really set the scene for a homespun Christmas! So many fabulous props – the stylist in me wanted to buy everything!!

{Left} I scooped up three or four white frames from this vendor! They are going to be great for a collage project I’ll be tackling soon – I’ll be sure to share it with you!  {Middle} How sweet is the netting hanging from the ceiling with the ornaments? This building was more fairy cottage than farm shed, that’s for sure! {Right} I really wanted to get these sconces but I had to pace myself… we weren’t even in the house yet!

{Top left} One pair of these ice skates made there way home with me!! Can’t wait to use them in an upcoming photo shoot! {Top & Bottom Right} Loved these old doors! {Bottom Left} I also really wanted this mirror but sadly someone beat me to it!!

Do you see any treasures you’d love to have amongst these? Please share in the comments below – I’d love to hear about your favorites!

That’s all for now. Next stop… the house! I hope you’ll join me as I continue the tour!

    Isn’t Lucketts fun? If you find yourself there again, be sure to check out On a Whim (http://www.onawhimantiques.com/), which is very close by.

    About half an hour from Leesburg (kind-of, sort-of on the way home) is an incredible fabric store called Haute. I found it a few weeks ago (pictures here: http://www.smallchichome.com/2011/10/delightful-fabric-hoard-in-marhsall-va.html) and was stunned by the place.

    I love Cville, but Loudoun is a pretty fun place to go for a day trip. :)

      I will definitely have to check out these shops! Thanks so much for the recommendations!! I’ve also heard that Chartreuse & Co (http://www.chartreuseandco.com/) is amazing but I haven’t been there yet. I agree – Charlottesville’s my fav but a day trip to Loudoun is super fun!! @smallchic I just checked out the Haute post on your site (which is so lovely btw!!) and those fabrics and trims are absolutely dreamy!!!
