has begun
1st stop

the spring market at 
the old luckett's store
in leesburg, va

 we'd never been there before
so we were excited to see what a fabulous show they put on !

 so much 'junk' ... you know the good kind !!

check out this little turquoise metal drawer set........loved it !!!

the venue itself was awesome and just right for this type of show

i'm so tired.... i think you are just getting pictures from here on...enjoy



the old tyme marketplace

childs formica table set..........awesome !

 if there had been room in the truck . .
this chandy would have come home with us, 
but i would have had to
hold it in my lap all the way home !

you could even buy some new duds there !!

i love globes..especially odd color ones - like white !

and added pleasure was that there was a 
hometalk meet up on sunday !!

special guest Donna from Funky Junk
( picking out a 'junker' type key bracelet in my booth )

speaking of our booth......
my bestie Lucy from bel monili 
and I combined our efforts to 
make one massive display...
what'd ya think ??

hope you get some feel for what it was like to be there...
plan to come next year if you can..
it's a wonderful show !
(even in the rain)

OH how wonderful - I grew up in VA and miss being there and finding such beautiful things:)Love it!

Wow Jeanne! You sure did see a lot ore of the market than I did! I recognize many of the areas and items but there are so many more that I missed completely and would have loved to have taken home! Love your HUGE spread with Bel Monili and the colorful ruffles along the tops of the tents - so cute! I would have loved to have bought one of your typewriter key creations! Lucketts is the coolest place and has been my favorite for many years! Those little sheds are there year round and always have fun things in them! The grounds are gorgeous and the two old houses, one where the store is and the other used as the Design House are fabulous! There's even a swimming pool on the property!I'm so sorry that I missed y'all! I hope that we can meet up soon! Hugs, Leena

I thought your booth was amazing... I really liked the front of it and took a photo to remember to make a ruffle for my booth! The shopping was amazing. Thanks to all the wonderful vendors with all the great stuff!

I made up my mind to go the minute I saw who was going to be there. There was SOOOOO much cool Junk! Can't wait 'til next year to see you guys again, I'll bring more money and a bigger car!

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

thank you for sharing. I only took pictures of the Design House and once I got caught up in the excitement of shopping all the tent vendors didn't take another picture and never even got to visit the store. I saw your threesome tent with the pretty pink and blue. Loved it!

Funky Junk Interiors said...

What a fabulous post! Yes! Your combined tents made a huge impact! So cool you two are touring together, what a fabulous idea!

Your pictures reminded me how much more shopping I had to do. LOVED seeing what you saw through YOUR camera lens! I wanna go back already. :)

Thanks again for making the most beautiful typewriter key bracelets a junker could own!
