New Vintage Furniture and Decor Finds

A curated collection of vintage furniture and decor from local and out-of-state auctions! The Lucketts Store Spring Market is less than a month away!!!  I've been severely neglecting the blog and my home to travel and hunt for vintage inventory for the market.   I've been participating in the vintage market for a few years and it's definitely a market to visit if you live within the DMV area.  Today, I'm sharing a peek at some of my latest vintage hauls for Lucketts as well as new vintage items that are dropping in my online shop , It's not uncommon for me to be on the road a few days a week either picking up online auction buys or exploring new areas.   Lately, I've been on the road more than usual searching for the perfect vintage furniture and decor to take to the market.  You'll quickly learn that I stick to neutrals and shades of green, which is how I decorate my own home .  I definitely buy what I love and really struggle to sell many of the items...

How to Remove Spray Paint From Brass

How to remove spray paint from brass and restore it to its original beauty! First, I just want to say thank you for the kind words on last week's secondhand furniture makeover.   I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, but it quickly became a popular project. Have you ever been out thrifting and come across painted brass decor, or found a piece of secondhand furniture with painted original brass hinges and hardware?  I used to think that brass was ruined once painted, but did you know you can easily remove spray paint from brass?
