My daughter and I enjoy our annual trip to the market and this year, she won VIP tickets for the early bird shopping day on Friday! This was great because it wasn't as crowded as the weekend days and we got to see the goodies fresh off the trucks! We had a blast! We got there early and the weather was perfect - warm, sunny and with a refreshing breeze.
There was SO MUCH to see and you can find just about everything there. From the most refined Victorian settee to the best rusty old bed springs, they have it all and we saw it all! Twice! We made a return trip on Sunday and brought my grand daughter, Abigail, with us. She is just as big a vintage junker as her MeeMaw is!
The folks at Lucketts really do a fabulous job of setting up the market. The grounds are gorgeous to begin with, with lovely flowers and even a swimming pool! I'm always so tempted to hop that fence and take a dip in the glistening, cool water! The green house is where the old store is located. Beyond the pool and through a charming breezeway, you'll find yet another lovely old home, which houses the Design House.
There, you'll find wonderful rooms staged with furniture, home décor and lighting in inviting vignettes. It's open on select weekends and is well worth adding to your visit! We also enjoyed sitting in the covered area where the shade offered a nice resting spot for a bite to eat and a cold drink while listening to the Adam Bruno band - they were terrific! I don't listen to much country-type music, but they played selections from The Eagles, Jimmy Buffett and my new favorite song, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Come Off"! It gave me a real good laugh!
Please join me as we take a tour of the market with lots of pictures! There is so much inspiration and the photos just make me happy!

|This sweet vignette gave me the perfect idea of how to display my vintage typewriter!|

|Old bikes are the coolest!|
|Such a peaceful, shaded garden setting!|
Abigail really enjoyed the tee-pee at The Robin's Nest!
|Just look at all the treasures!|
|Beautiful items and a fun Airstream!|
|I wanted to take all of this home and put it in my yard - even the lobster!|
|Of course, I have to take pictures of every old truck and trailer I see!|
