We loaded the truck this evening and, unlike previous years, it didn’t rain! It has rained most years when we pack the truck, which isn’t a huge deal, but it’s a pain to try to keep everything dry. It was very soupy (humid) and threatened to rain, but waited until everything was in the truck. Whew! It was also the smoothest truck-packing we’ve ever had. The guys who came to help worked so hard and were patient with me as I requested things be moved into the house first for a photo shoot, then out to the truck. For three of them, I think this is their second or third year helping, so they have become Lucketts-packing-pros. We are really blessed to have young men like this to help each year.
Here are some things that ended up on the truck…
This black desk actually belonged to my dad’s grandma. He rescued it from an attic and brought it to me to fix up to sell. Well, my aunt liked it so much that she bought it! So, it’ll come off the truck at Lucketts and head right back to PA.
I fell in love with the top of this piece.
And yesterday, my mom made some glass glitter crowns just for fun. I didn’t have these last year, but they always sell well, so we’re bringing them back. I’ll also have jars of German Glass Glitter to sell in four different colors. (More on the glitter later.)
I’ll share full before & afters on each of these pieces, but I wanted to show them before Lucketts for those who are shopping. It’s nice to know what’s available!
I actually had a bunch of ironstone delivered to my door today, so I priced and packed that as well. Girls, I hope you’re ready to buy ironstone, because I have a ridiculous amount! I have everything from $1.00 egg cups to really beautiful tureens and casseroles, plates, platters, bowls, sugar jars, pitchers, chamber pots, spittoons even!
I’ve also been working on some surprises, like this collapsable checkout counter…
We have finally graduated from the card table.
