Day one of Lucketts is all hustle and bustle. Day two is much more relaxed. It was still the busiest day two I’ve experienced in my Lucketts fair career, but it wasn’t anything like the Saturday craziness.
I actually had a chance to stage my space and take some pictures before the gates opened…
…and I had more time to spend with people who came just to say hello. Lorraine brought me a beautiful ironstone sugar jar with a daisy planted inside.
Does she know me or what?
Candace of The Love Tag Shoppe, who had waited in line since 8:00 am Saturday in order to shop, came back for day two to hang out. (Thanks so much for sharing your pictures, Candace.)
I also had a chance to see my dear friend, Funky Junk Donna, in action over at the Hometalk booth next door. She was teaching how to use basic tools to build unique pieces out of some “junk” provided by the Lucketts Store.
I also got to spend some time with Breida, my buddy from Lucketts last year. She was spending the weekend at Lucketts for her birthday and was sharing it all on social media. I loved her I’m-a-social-media-dork-and-proud of-it pin. (Breida, you know how hard it was for me to get a picture of you? You were either blinking, talking or blurry in all of my pictures!)
I usually have lots of time to shop and visit other booths, but I only had about 30 minutes to do that this year…
(Doesn’t the dresser above look like Shutter Gray and Mustard Seed Yellow MMS Milk Paint? I’m not sure if it was, but it’s beautiful!)
I only bought two things. Some photogenic pencils and a typewriter key bracelet. Big spender here.
As the day was winding down, Candace came back to pick up the vanity she purchased first thing Saturday morning. It’s a special piece because it belonged to my grandmother.
She had me write some history about the piece on the back on a drawer, which I thought was such a creative idea.
Everyone then packed up their vehicles and went on their way.
We ended up being able to fit the remaining merchandise into my dad’s truck and my van, which was awesome.
I do have some things that didn’t sell to put in the online shop and I have a new shipment of t-shirts coming in to sell. I’ll get that set up soon.
I still have so much more to share…lots of before and after pictures, tutorials, some thoughts on shopping for pieces from a vendor’s perspective, my philosophy on pricing, and some details about a very special visitor in my home…
