A Timely mention

We were super-psyched last week when we got a call from a woman in New York who tipped us off that one of our finds had made it to a farm outside Pittsburgh, PA, and then all the way into the front page article in the New York Times Home section on Thursday, June 9th!

The article was called The Decorated Shed, and it featured the story of a couple who bought a farm in Pennsylvania as a weekend retreat.  After many years of growing crops and donating them to local food banks, they decided it was time to redecorate the farm (that's where we come in).  Designer Lisa Dagnal purchased one of our marble side tables at our shop in Virginia and decorated Esther Dormer's bedroom.  A scan of the front page of the article and of our mention (see caption for picture #6) are shown below.

This article was featured on the front cover of the New York Times Home section on June 9th, 2011.

I know you probably can't read it, but the picture on the bottom right is a picture of our marble top table's new home.  The caption reads "the marble-top side table is from the Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, VA".
A special thank you shout out to my sister Amy and her other half, Dave, for running out to the newsstand in the pouring rain and snapping up a copy and mailing it to me the next day!  <3


  1. Congrats, Lucketts. Love your stuff. I'm honored to see that dozens of my finds from my store Garden Style Living in McMurrary, PA were used and pictured in NYT "The Decorated Shed" article, as well. How fun! Mary Keebler at mjkeebler@me.com

  2. Such beautiful things from Lucketts deserve top-notch recognition in the NYT!
