Lucketts 2015 day one | what’s left

Marian Parsonsbuying & selling antiques18 Comments

The first day of the Lucketts Spring Market 2015 is in the books!  Since the fair has never been opened on Friday, I had no idea what to expect.  It ended up being a low-key day, but we had good sales and really enjoyed the more relaxed atmosphere.  I think adding this day and kicking Saturday off a little earlier (8:00 am) will end up giving the customers a better shopping experience, so things aren’t so crazy.  We’ll see how Saturday turns out!

For those who are shopping tomorrow (Saturday), I know you want to know what’s left!  As sold tags were being tied onto one piece after another today, I was wondering if my booth would look a little pathetic Saturday morning.  We ended up selling the perfect amount, I think.  There is still tons of ironstone, many painted pieces of furniture, lavender, cool accessories, t-shirts, MMS Milk Paint products, a few hand painted signs, hemp sheets, quilts, boxwood wreaths, mini basil wreaths, French chairs, stools, scales, bread boards and more.

I’ll do a recap post at the end of the weekend to avoid confusion, so the pictures below were all taken at the end of Friday, so everything pictured is still available for sale




(The yellow buffet, Lucketts green highboy and primitive hutch in the background of this picture did sell.)



(This gorgeous old farm table was missing the tag for the first couple hours of the sale, so it’s still available…)














See?  There is still lots of good stuff.  I need to fluff it a bit tomorrow, but I’ll try to keep things mostly where they are pictured, in case you’re trying to make a beeline for something!

As we were rearranging and filling holes, I told Jeff that this feels like the same amount we usually have for a Saturday morning, so bringing all of that extra stuff really helped.

I have to get up at 4:30 tomorrow morning, so I’m signing off for the night…

  1. I sooooo wish I was closer! My favorite items are still there… the Milk sign and the blue dresser! I hope the skies are clear and the shoppers are many for the rest of the weekend!

  2. I Love the two drawer box-like piece on top of the green chest that’s in one of the pictures. The dog on wheels is in the same picture (it has a scale on top of it). The color is perfect, Wonder what it was used for? Saw it in your Luckett’s pre pictures– it caught my eye then. Wish I could shop with you tomorrow. Glad you’re having a great sale!

  3. Such a beautiful booth!! I hope to one day make it out to Luckett’s Market (especially with Luckett’s Green being my favorite color in your line!) Best of luck for the remainder of the sale. I am always so inspired by your market set up. Thanks for the update!

  4. I can’t believe your hand painted empire dresser didn’t sell yet! I’ve loved it since you first posted about it. Good luck tomorrow! Hope all goes smoothly.

    1. I can’t believe the empire dresser either?! That piece is fantastic! If I could, I would be running directly to that piece and guarding it! Maybe I could replicate it?! Totally wish there was a annual market event like this here in Western PA.

  5. You are so sweet for taking time after such a busy day to keep us updated. If I lived closer I would definitely make a beeline for that old farm table, perfect job!

  6. I would want to bring everything home with me! Wish I was closer too. We have our local fair thiis week- Brimfield, but I would love to one day venture to Luckett’s! Good luck on the rest of your sales. I doubt you will have much left to bring home!

  7. Wow! Your booth looks amazing! I see so many things I would love to buy if I lived closer (I’m in Michigan) Thanks for taking the time after your busy day to update your readers about the Luckett’s Market. Best of luck for beautiful weather and great sales!! You do beautiful work!

  8. Just returned from Lucketts…your booth looks fabulous! It was so nice to see you all in person; You are as sweet as can be! Your upholstery work is divine! You are truly talented and you have a magnificent team!

  9. The booth looks great and everything still looks beautiful. I’m particularly fond of that “Roy’s Upolstery” sign – my grandfather, Roy, used to do upolstery and seeing that made my heart smile!! Good luck the rest of the weekend!

  10. What is that cobalt blue box thing with the gears and crank in the first picture? It looks very intriguing. Hope you sell everything so you don’t have to bring anything back, except maybe that box ;0)

  11. I was a lucky winner of one of the V.I.P. tickets and visited from Bucks County, Pa with my husband. Friday was low key and very enjoyable. A casual, country, “vintage hip” vibe with creative vendors, yummy food, and good music. Lots of fun and a great opportunity to make it a weekend and explore something new in the area. We chose Annapolis this time, but there is so much to do in the MidAtlantic States if you go to the Lucketts Spring Fair. Marian is just as cute and delightful in person! Thanks so much!

  12. I had such a great time visiting on Friday. This is my first year attending the event, so I don’t know what it was like in the past, but I thought the crowds were so manageable and the selection was fantastic. I will definitely be making this an annual trip. I loved wandering through your booth, your pieces were even more beautiful in person, and I was so grateful for the chance to meet you, Kriste, and the rest of your crew. I am feeling so inspired after the day and looking forward to putting some of my ideas into action!

  13. Hi Marian!!! I just found your site and I am so happy I did!!! Thanks so much for sharing your booth with us. Now that I know about the sale I hope to make it there next year!!!

    I wanted to ask you about the colors on two of your items: The color on the blanket chest in the last picture (with the blue chairs), and the color on the glass door cabinet holding the Ironstone collection (above the picture with the “Roy’s Upholstery” sign). I love both of them. Will you please tell me which paint colors you used so I know which ones to order?

    Thank you,
