Happy Tuesday, Lovelies!
Wow, what a fun weekend! The cap of the weekend was definitely walking around the Old Lucketts Spring Market. It rained and rained, but I still loved finding inspiration, speaking to my favorite bloggers, and ogling the beautiful future. I’m not a big TV watcher, I’m more of a tinkerer, and the Old Lucketts Spring Market is on my version of a red carpet, movie premier, and superbowl—all rolled into one!
My favorites were definitely the Beekeepers Cottage, Miss Mustard Seed, and Ekster Antiques. In true Ekster style, Caroline’s tent was tall and opulent. See the furniture below. Two beautiful “mini” Victorian chairs were on my drool list. They are the perfect size for our six year old. Think of the tea parties!
Ekster is hosting a sale on May 31, June 1 & 2. I’m trying (desperately!) to fit it into the schedule.
By Saturday, Miss Mustard Seed was nearly sold out, but I picked up her book—The Inspired You. It’s really the perfect time in my life for the book. I also eyed her preserved boxwood wreaths and dried lavender bouquets.
After Old Lucketts, we drove to Chartreuse & Company in Frederick, MD, about 15 minutes. There is a GREAT roadside BBQ place on the same—I totally recommend stopping. Chartreuse & Company has about doubled since I was there last- crazy!
There is a barn full of cheap pieces that are ready and priced to be sourced for your next project. It’s more expensive than Craigslist, but its fool of the good stuff. I asked about the price of two pieces. Both were more expensive than I wanted to pay and sold. The HUGE farmhouse and apparently TWO new old buildings were closed. Chartreuse & Company is only open one weekend a month and close at 4pm.
Darn it! I’ll be back soon.
Then, we popped over to Stylish Patina (4 miles away) for a peek—my first. I’m looking to rent a few antiques Stylish Patina for my wedding-- Stylish Patina has vintage and antique wedding rentals. The building was small, secluded and far. Maybe stop by if you’re in the area, but it’s a far drive for a “meh” selection if your not.
Unfortunately, I only took a few cell phone photos of Old Lucketts. More on their website! Coming with me next year?
