Lucketts Spring Market

I should have spent Sunday finishing the door project we started last week, but instead I drove to Virginia with my friend Carrie and her family to do a day of shopping at the Lucketts Spring Market. I’d never been to The Old Lucketts Store before, but this seemed to be the right weekend to visit. They were hosting the annual Lucketts Spring Market with 150 vendors on site selling amazing stuff (refinished furniture, vintage finds, cool accessories, etc.). Carrie’s husband and son dropped us off to have a daddy-son day of their own, so Carrie and I got to walk around for a few hours perusing each of the booths. Man, there was some cool stuff!

I walked away with a milk crate and Carrie got a handwriting sample poster for her new playroom. I was half tempted to spell out “Smith” in old printing press letters, but they were way too pricey for my taste. Oh well! If you ever get the opportunity to visit the market, definitely go — and go early! We had no traffic issues, but when we left there was a huge line of cars sitting in traffic to get in.

Even if you don’t buy anything, it is worth it just to walk around and see the amazing amount of creativity in one space.
