Lucketts Trip Part One

5.20.2014

Last Thursday we left our house at 7 am to drive about nine hours (according to google maps) to Dulles, Va. where we were staying during our trip to Lucketts and other places. Well, this photo below shows what we saw most of the day and it took eleven hours instead of nine.





Pouring when we arrived at our destination.

The next day was sunny and beautiful and we spent the first part of the day in DC since Shirley's husband had some business to do there.

So Shirley, Mr. Savvy and I walked around and took some shots. Fun to see the Washington Monument a couple days after it reopened, but we did not go in.



Lincoln Memorial from afar.

After we left DC we drove towards Lucketts to visit Mary Alice of Chateau Chic where she has a booth at Rust & Feathers. Let me tell you I found some great things in this place. 

This is another cute shop in the same spot called On A Whim.

That evening we met Mary Alice and her husband for dinner in Leesburg at Tuscarona Mill.
We had really good food and a good time. Leesburg is such a quaint town.


I borrowed this photo from Shirley that her hubby took.

I'm going to skip and show you some of the loot I brought home and then I will share our day at Lucketts in part two.



These were found at Rust & Feathers in a booth where everything is from Germany. I can't wait to get these displayed. Really really good prices there compared to here.

One of my favorite things is this red enamelware colander also found at Rust & Feathers that Shirley spotted for me. 

More coming soon and I can't wait to see what you have to share at Wow Us Wednesdays tonight.

See y'all there.

  6. Oh Kim, I was anxious to see your take on your trip, hoping you would show your finds. With the teaser photo on Shirley's post of your husband with the pitchfork, I thought maybe you got it - yay! I was in Ohio this past weekend, and saw one (continuous, central piece of wood), and thought of you - it was $45 ($40.50 with 10% off). Leesburg looks a lot like Old Town Alexandria, just across the river from DC - quaint, nice town. Looking forward to seeing your next post. Hope you've recovered from all the travel. All that rain would make for a really taxing drive for me, and probably a muscle-strain migraine. :/

  17. I love canes and also collect them. At present, I think I have about five or six. They are an expensive collectible. I love the ones you bought on your trip. Especially the one with the oval opening at the top, very unique! Can't wait to see the display pictures!
