The big switcheroo!

Just wanted to quickly share with you some changes we've had to the second and third floors of the shop this week.

Lots of projects and change this week ---- painting, rearranging, and welcoming new - and not so new, vendors.

What the What? #10 - revealed!

This week, we posted a picture of an odd item Lisa had in her space.  

We had some interesting guesses and a few were kinda close.

One of our readers was close...it is actually an industrial piece.

What the What? #10

We have a special phrase around the store when we find things on our travels that are particularly unusual, odd, confusing, or sometimes hideous.  

When we come across one of these items, we like to use one of our favorite Lucketts-isms, "What the... What?"  

Here is one of those items from the store.

It's happening....Spring Market is almost here!!

Enough about directions and parking,  items are arriving by the truckload and we couldn't be more excited.

We have been chomping at the bits trying to get everything in order, but today we are all smiles.  The weather is good, dealers are arriving and now we get to sit back and watch the property completely transform for this years Spring Market.

Store to Abode Fridays #13 - chalkboards

For Store to Abode Fridays, we take one item from the store as inspiration and show you how to use it in your home.

Chalkboards are wonderful, non-permanent ways to capture your favorite thoughts, ideas, and lists. 

You can purchase a ready-made piece, but these are also inexpensive DIY projects, which makes their display that much more rewarding.

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.
