Luckett's Spring Market Recap (2016)


We've had three weeks of rain, so it was no surprise the forecast called for rain on Saturday.  My mom and I hesitated making the hour long drive to The Old Lucketts Store, but in the end I decided a little rain wasn't going to stand in our way.  I pulled out my gungi boots (for those of you that don't speak our family language that is my dad's made up word for heavy duty boots, aka my rain boots) and set out to find some cool vintage finds.

Grab your coffee and take a seat, this post is gonna be long my friends.

We got there just after 10:00 on Saturday and sure enough it was a muddy mess.   Thankfully, there were no heavy downpours, but a steady mist was enough to cause problems for parking and walking.  Luckily, I managed to stay on my feet and not fall in a puddle of mud.

Along with the Lucketts store there were well over 100 vendors from all over the area.  Everything from handmade soaps and lotions to one of a kind pieces.

How fun was this set up from Stylish Patina?

Of course I had to get another shot of the most adorable trailer ever.

One of the items I was hoping to find was a set of lockers.  I almost bought these from Lucketts, but since they weren't exactly what I was looking for I had to pass.

I also loved this mug holder.  It was a cool spin on the traditional counter ones you see around.

They had a room full of vintage fabrics and textiles,

and an abundance of shutters, windows and doors.

The rest of our time was spent checking out the amazing vendors.  I actually got a chance to chat with a few of them including Heather and her husband from Naked Goat Soap Co.  Together, they make handmade soaps and lotions using milk from goats raised on their farm.  It was a pleasure to chat with them and learn about their amazing products.  I ended up buying soap and lotion that will be perfect for combatting Owen's eczema.  Check out their website when you have a chance.

I also spoke with Terry Jett from Charm City Farmhouse.  He recently scored a bunch of beautiful printers cabinets from a print shop.  If you're local to Frederick, MD he is at Chartreuse and Company the third weekend of the month.

I was so close to buying these two cabinets ($199 a piece), but wasn't 100% sure they would fit where I was planning on using them.  I've been in contact with Terry and miraculously they are still available.  Hmm, might be meant to be.

These gorgeous lockers were only $75!!!  Too bad they were already sold by the time I saw them.

After we left Lucketts we drove a few miles down the road to Rust & Feathers and a few other cool shops.

This guy had me at "hello!"  I was really hesitant on purchasing it, but due to the fair price I threw caution to the wind and bought it on the spot.  It was marked $195, but I was able to get it for $180.  

It's not perfect and there is a lot of rust along the bottom and sides, but the price was right and it has so much potential.

Thankfully, the rust is only on the surface and should be easy to clean and remove.  I'm going to try a few home methods for removing the surface rust and the rest will be removed with a ZEK abrasive grinding disk.  It will be long and tedious work, but I'm confident I can make this cabinet beautiful again.

More than likely I'll be spraying the cabinet a different color, but I'm going to wait until the basement is more complete to make a decision.  Until then, I'll enjoy it just the way it is.

I'm already looking forward to next year's Lucketts spring market and can't wait to start working on my new cabinet.  But first, there is a big pile of flooring that needs to be installed and unfortunately it's not going to install itself.
