Luckett's Spring Market 2019

Tour of a vintage market booth and vendors from one of the largest and most popular vintage markets on the East coast! 


This week has been crazy!  I take that back.  The last couple of weeks have been crazy. 

Besides living in a construction zone and being smack dab in the middle of a major renovation, I've also been preparing for one of the largest vintage markets of the year.  Luckett's Spring Market brings visitors and vendors from up and down the east coast for a weekend full of vintage shopping, food trucks, beer and live music.   It's one of my favorite vintage markets and it never disappoints. 

I've been going to the Luckett's Spring Market for years (Luckett's 2015 / Luckett's 2016), but this is the first year I've been a vendor and it was such a great experience.  I sold a ton, got to spend a fun weekend shopping and working with my Sweet Clover family and met some amazing and talented vendors.

A LOOK AT MY VINTAGE BOOTH
The weekend of the spring market is known for rain, but we lucked out this year with amazing weather.    I was hot and sweaty all weekend, but I'd take heat and sunshine over rain any day.

I took five large pieces to the market and the only one that didn't sell was the mid century modern Bassett dresser.  It's a beautiful dresser and I'm surprised it didn't sell, but then again I think most market shoppers look for antique, distressed and chippy furniture.

I took a ton of Lyon locker baskets, vintage cameras, clocks, crates and fans, metal drawer units, antique leaded glass windows, mud cloth pouches, stone bracelets and lots of unique vintage decor.

I took two truckloads, a trailer and an SUV full of furniture and decor to the market and by Sunday afternoon I was almost sold out.  It was crazy.  The customers were so amazing and I am so grateful for everyone who stopped by, shopped and made it a successful event.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE VENDORS AND SPACES
One of my favorite parts of Lucketts are the amazing vendors that come from all over. Vendors that I've followed and admired on Instagram and were excited to finally meet in person.  East End Trading Co. has been coming to Luckett's Spring Market for years and they are always one of my favorite booths. 
Industrial metal storage drawers
They always have a ton of architectural salvage, vintage rugs (I bought one from them this year!), unique vintage pieces and cool displays.

I don't remember the name of the dealer, but I snapped a picture of this metal card catalog and it was too good not to share.

One of my all time favorite vendors who I love following on Instagram for styling inspiration is JBS Mercantile.   Jenni is super sweet and has an amazing eye for design.  I wish I would have taken more pictures of her space to show you just how gorgeous everything was.

Another one of my favorite vendors (and auction competitor ha) is my friend, Sean.  He owns Vintage Redefined at Monrovia and always has the coolest industrial pieces, unique card catalogs and multi drawer units.

There were a lot of other amazing vendors and I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I was too focused on admiring, shopping and chatting with everyone that I totally forgot, oops.

WHAT DID I BUY?
I worked during the market on the first day, but I did sneak off to shop a little and was able to snag a few cool things.  

finds from Lucketts spring market
The beautiful vintage rug was bought from East End Trading Co.  I loved the deep colors and hope to use it in the kitchen.  

The vintage EXIT sign was a total score and one of my favorite finds!  It's a heavy wood sign that's wrapped in metal and full of age and texture.  I can't wait to hang it above our mudroom door and bring a little bit of vintage character to space. 

If you live near Berryville, VA (or even if you don't!), definitely check out the Luckett's Spring Market next year.  This year, there were over 200 vendors and more than 10,000 people came to shop.  It's a can't miss vintage market that is definitely worth the drive, I promise.
