Store to Abode Fridays #12 - fans

For Store to Abode Fridays, we take one of our items from the store, and give you ideas on how to use it in your home.

Vintage fans are beautiful and were built to last.  You can still find them in great condition {many still work, just be sure to get them rewired & watch your fingers} at flea markets, yard sales, and at vintage shops like The Old Lucketts Store.

What a great accessory for your home.  Here are some pretty pieces we love.

Here is the inspiration photo I took a few weeks ago at The Old Lucketts Store.  What a great vintage fan - love those metal blades.  Before they were purchased, this fan and pedestal combo belonged to our dealers Jennifer {1st floor, dealer code JDH or OWL} and Marian {1st floor, dealer code MSI}.

And here are some pretty fans for you!

{1}  Fans look great together in a collection.  Just a few pieces grouped together can really fill up a space and give you a unique look.


{2}  Two favorites, vintage fans and vintage letters.  This is a nice masculine look for a young or teenage boy's room {just make sure the fan can't be plugged in}.


{3}  Cute fan on a bedside table.  Also a great idea to hang a favorite photo in an empty frame.


{4}  Vintage fans look great when displayed with industrial or utilitarian items like this lamp and soda crate.

{5}  Another great grouping, perfect to display on a sideboard, dresser, or console table.


Don't forget, it's Mayhem 2012 tonight!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks for joining us for Store to Abode Friday.  If you want to see other products we typically sell in the store and how you can decorate with them, click on the picture below.


  1. I'm in love with vintage fans! They add so much character to a space. Even if they don't work I think they're a fabulous accessory!

  2. I put pictures of our trip to the cabin on my facebook page. Tried to share on Lucketts Store page, but wouldn't let me do it. Please check them out. Thanks again!! Donna & Henry

  3. Does anyone know a good local resource who can help me with a vintage fan's motor? The fan works - all too well! - but the motor seems like it may be too powerful for the fan. After running the fan for about 15 minutes, the base gets very hot, and I'm concerned that it will cause an electrical problem. Any ideas would be welcomed!
