A few weeks ago, we posted a few stories here talking about where our finds end up when they leave the shop. We had a really nice email from Melissa B., a civil rights attorney in Washington, DC who has featured a few of her Lucketts finds on her blog, Vintage Afterthoughts.
"I picked up this really cute curved bench seat / trunk at Lucketts. (I asked mi amiga what she would call it, and she said "a cutey patootey." Lots of help she is). When I purchased it, the dealer told me that she had found it years ago, loved it, gave it a place in her home, and then had given it to her friend. Her friend reupholstered the top, kept it at her home for a while, then sold it in her space at Lucketts. Now, it is mine :) Here is a small bird I picked up and used on my faux mantle."
You can find Melissa's original blog posts here, here, and here. Thanks Melissa for sharing your story.
If you have an item purchased at The Old Lucketts Store or the Design House and would like to share how you used it, please email us and put "blog" in the subject line.
