Lucketts Day One

Marian ParsonsMiscellaneus34 Comments

I had a blast at Lucketts today.  The rain at the end of the day put a little damper on things, but I sold a lot of stuff and got to meet some of my readers and fellow bloggers.  It was funny having my “Miss Mustard Seed” persona collide with my real life. 
Here’s me (on the right) with Cassie (on the left) from Primitive and Proper.  Both Cassie and Pam  had wonderful furniture pieces that just flew out of their booths.  They were also both delightful people, much to my relief.  (I think we all have the fear that one of our blog buddies is a felon or some guy blogging from his mom’s basement pretending to be a sweet SAHM who paints furniture.)  Cassie’s hair looks so cute.  I had to wear a doo-rag or I would’ve had a ‘fro. 
I also got to meet Sherry, Molly (I’ll get pictures of her stuff tomorrow.  You will die.), Leslie and a few other girls who read my blog, but don’t write blogs of their own.  It was so neat to have a community of women there.  I constantly felt like I wanted to run over to see how they were doing and I wanted to chit-chat and get to know them better, but we all had work (or shopping) to do. 
It’s hard to be an antique lover at an antique market.  Right when I drove in the gate I spotted this pair of French chairs.  I was yelling out the window at Denise to go on a covert mission too see how much they were.  They were $325 for the pair and I was pining after them last night and all day today.  I finally went to check them out (to see what I could not afford and what would not be coming home with me) and, thankfully, the love was gone.  They were poorly painted, poorly upholstered and very tired looking.  They had a great shape, but needed way too much work for $325. 
I did make a few small purchases and I’ll share those with you next week.  Until then, here are a couple of shots from one booth I loved. 

Can you believe that the pictures of my booth stunk?  I was so busy that I snapped some quick pictures and they were terrible.  Ugh.  The stuff is sold and the opportunity is lost.  I sold the most adorable pale pink baby scale with a wooden holder and it would’ve been so fun to stage and photograph.  Well, I’m pooped and I have a long day tomorrow.  Nighty-night.
Pray the rain holds off tomorrow!

  1. Hi, what a shame your photos didn't come out any good, I would have loved to see them! I love the photo of you and Cassie, and really lol'd at your comment re the guy in his basement pretending to be a furniture-paiting SAHM…then I had to read it to my husband! Gosh I wish we had a fair like Lucketts somewhere near me…

  2. There you are you little cutie patootie! I am so glad that you had a great day. I can't wait to see what you found while you were there. A girl I went to high school with was talking about Lucketts last night. She lives in FL though, so I guess the word is getting around! Hopefully the rain will hold out and you will have another successful day too.

  3. Had a blast today and got some fun loot, but the bestest part by far was meeting you and your sweet Dad! Only major downer is that I wrote up a post super fast but spent waaay too much time trying to get it posted… I can't get any of my pics to load to blogger!!! Am very cranky. Think it's time to drive this Mac to a store for a check-up… grrr
    Hope you rest up and restock for tomorrow. It was wonderful watching your gorgeous pieces fly right outta your booth!
    Good luck tomorrow and THANKS for making me feel so welcome today.
    hugs,
    Leslie

  4. I'm so glad you had a wonderful and successful day! And I'm so bummed I wasn't there! I had planned to go and then threw my back out on Thursday! I hope you have another great day tomorrow!

  5. Congrats to you on a successful day! What fun to meet other bloggers! Crossing my fingers the rain holds off for you. If you'd like, you're welcome to send it in my direction. 🙂

  6. Oh how I wish I was at Lucketts…my sister use to live close by there, when I would go visit we made sure that one stop while out shopping was at Lucketts….we found the most wonderful items there.

  7. Glad you had a good sale day and I know it was so much fun to meet fellow blogger friends in person I would love to get to come to this show one year. It really looks like a great show!!! Praying that the weather will hold out on Sunday for you. Love & blessings from NC!

  8. I am glad everything went well, and you had a lot of good sales. And it is fun to finally see you on your blog. I am glad to see YOU are not some bald guy from HongKong imposing as an furniture redo-er.

  9. Hi Miss M, so glad day one was such a success, I could not handle being around all that gorgeous stuff, I would have absolutely taken home more than I arrived with! How great to get a chance to meet some bloggy buddies, and I think your do-rag (haven't heard that one before!) looks cute!!

  10. What great fun you are having! Love the pics! Oh how disappointing that I can't see your space at the beginning of the sale. Sigh! I know that is sad to you too!!! I am praying for no rain too!

  11. I read every post of yours. It is wonderful to see you and to realize you are so young and to be so talented.
    Look forward to the next post.

  12. A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm! You looked just adorable in that little head scarf – really! Sounds like the day was successful – being surrounded by such wonderful vintage and antiques must have been inspiring! I might have been a little light-headed soaking it all in – there's just something about being surrounded by such interesting items! Happy to see that you even got to meet some blogger friends, and they are adorable (and normal) too! Ciao, bella!

  13. It was so nice to meet you yesterday! Thanks for introducing me to the Lucketts show…Wow! A lot of the things I liked sold early so I've developed a game plan for how I'll attack the show next year.

    Also, I'm still giggling about how your Dad was so impressed by his "famous daughter!" He was so proud! 🙂

  14. I am so glad to hear that your show has been successful for you… Your stuff is so gorgeous I couldn't imagine you not selling out… can't wait to see what you came home with.

    How nice to meet so many of your followers. Such a cute pic of you and Cassie.

    Hugs, Deb

  15. Hey hey Miss mustard seed…nice meeting you at Luckett's today…you had some lovely stuff! It was a bit rainy, but we had a blast and so glad it tapered off in the end 😉 Going to search around you blog a bit, it looks so fun!

  16. hi marian! it was so fantastic to meet you in person- you are ever as adorable and charming in person as i could have imagined. and your dad is so sweet as well and great with names- every time i saw him he called me by my first name. that's impressive! i am sorry i didn't get to pop by to say bye- ended up with a migraine last night and came home, got sick, and went to bed. not a great way to end a fabulous weekend!
