If you’ve even popped in on my blog once or twice before, you’ve probably read something about Lucketts…about me going there or selling out of there or getting ready for Lucketts or loving Lucketts or all of the above. If you aren’t aware, Lucketts is only the most amazing antique store in the world. Well, in my opinion (and I think a few other people feel that well also.) For those who are far away and feel taunted by my frequent posts about the place that is near and dear to my heart, well, the talented and lovely ladies behind The Lucketts Store have come up with a way for you to Shop Lucketts from the comfort of your home…in your jammies. (You know, you could show up at Lucketts in your jammies and that would be okay, too, if that’s your thing.)
Anyway, here’s the whole idea behind Shop Lucketts. It’s not just an online store. Once a month, Amy, Suzanne and their team design an entire house that customers can visit for inspiration and buy what they love. Everything in the home is for sale and it’s entirely different every month. They love to mix the new with the old and really old. They love fresh color and a great patina. They love searching for home decor items and great finds across the country, and being able to offer them to customers – without the decorator showroom prices. And they REALLY love design to redo an entire house each month! Here are some peeks at the Design House that will be open this weekend (August 3-5, 2012)…
I know. I know.
Suzanne and Amy wanted to bring a little dose of their Vintage Hip style offered in the Design House and at the Lucketts Store to those who can’t make it to the store in Leesburg, VA (and feel taunted because of it.) The past few months, they have been learning all about running an online store — the fun things (product selection, photographing items) and the not-so-fun things (website metrics, profit margins, and distribution centers). They’re getting it all figured out and now Shop Lucketts is packed full of hand selected goodies, including fresh ideas from the Design House, customer favorites, and a bunch of other great stuff they love (and they have amazing taste.)
They just got back last week from a home show in Atlanta where they picked up new products for The Design House and for Shop Lucketts. A few of the items they ordered includes lighting, pillows, small furniture pieces, and gorgeous entertaining accessories. Those items should be on their way and in the online store soon. Here are some of the items they’ve selected…
Oh my. That laundry basket and those wire cloches… Wow. I told you. Amazing taste.
In celebration of the August Design House event this weekend, they are offering all Miss Mustard Seed readers a 10% discount on ANY online order from Shop Lucketts. Please use the code MMS10AUG during check out, now through August 5th, 2012, at midnight EST.
