Lucketts – fresh vintage finds

Lucketts Store

I’ve been so excited to share pictures of a recent excursion to Lucketts, a destination I’ve blogged about many times before.  Life kinda got in the way, but here I am finally with photos to share.  Funny thing is it’s snowing again today… so please enjoy a few last pictures of the snow, and the beauty that is all around the Lucketts property.

Found a dress form at Lucketts

Yes, we brought this vintage tabletop dress form home – simply couldn’t pass it up a second time.  My husband reminded me that I took a picture of it here at the last Luckett’s Spring Market…. I know there must be a reason I crossed paths with it twice.  Brings this  Hey Girl image to mind that I have pinned in my dress forms board on Pinterest… with permission from Colleen of Fresh Vintage.  Yes, I do have a dress forms in my garage and basement, not to mention the studio….

Oh!  Of course no trip to Leesburg would be complete without a stop at Mom’s Apple Pie, a sweet little bake shop (don’t let the size fool you – they have it ALL inside)….home of the perfect, buttery pie crust. :-)

Thank you for joining me on our latest treasure-hunting excursion. Next up:  photos from the recent – AMAZING – artBLISS Boots & Bliss weekend! :-)

What lovely photos of your fabulous little trip!! I would love to spend time in this place – looks like heaven! I have serious dress form envy going on w/all of the ones you have, but absolutely no space what-so-ever to even put one in my home,…unless of course it got parked in the middle of the living or dining room. Seeing the expression on people’s faces when they walk in now and see my ‘rusty knight’ in shining armor standing in the dining room corner, I think I’ll pass on getting one and putting her in there – wouldn’t want people to think I was a bit eccentric or anything! LOL!!

Love, love, LOVE! I miss trips to Leesburg, so thanks for letting me visit in a virtual sense. Please tell me you know about Magnolia’s at the Mill (and the nearby antique shops) in Purcellville. Again, thanks for sharing this little slice of home!

Love all your delicious vintage pics. Especially the horse and those small metal pieces just itching to be made into molds for wonderful textures!! I hope someday you gather all your ladies together for a group shot. It will be an event I am sure. Love your newest!!

Thanks for the recommendation of Luckettes, Cindy. We had a great time there and Leesburg is an absolutely charming little town!

Thanks for sharing your adventure to Luckettes and seeing all the “lovelies.” So many awesome things to see! Maybe one day, I will get to go there. I ventured to your Pinterest site to look at the dress forms, re-pinning some things myself. Quite a few beauties on your site. Again, thanks for sharing all!

Oh wow! That looks like my kind of place! I adore your pictures as well as all the cool items there. Since I’ll probably never make it there, I do appreciate you sharing it with me. :)

Gorgeous photos Cindy. The one of your hubby carrying the dress form is too cute. Oh, and would you look at that, Mom’s Apple Pie has mail order! I may have to try some of that Chocolate Pecan Pie. Yumm!

That Hey Girl meme cracked me up! I think I need to make one that says ‘Hey Girl, I don’t mind sleeping on your jewelry. Just spread your wonderful treasures across the whole bed!’ LOL

From what I’ve seen it really looks like you have some great vintage treasure spots up by you! Hopefully it’s stopped snowing by now, too!!! :)

Oh those cameras!!!! I finally have four (I think?) duo lens ones.

I’d have snagged that form, too (both if they’d fit in the car!).

And those turquoise lockers…awesome shot.
