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.
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,
odds and ends,
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.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.
Can you guess what number I bought?
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.
Are you ready to see what I bought????
First let's talk about the littles (as Miss Mustard Seed calls them!)
-vintage loaf pan
-small wood box
-number 4 printers block
-metal number 4
-Annie Sloan soft wax
- milk lotion and oatmeal goat milk soap from Naked Goat Soap co.
Now for the main event!
Are you ready???
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.
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.
