Well, the main story on day two of Lucketts was rain. Major bummer.
My feet were wet from 8:00 am until about 9 pm and I had some seriously pruney toes. My dad was an Airborne Ranger, so he was a real trooper and kept a smile through it all (except when he was nodding off from exhaustion!)
It was pouring in the morning, so I retreated to the comforts of Molly’s booth inside.
I had to snap some photos of her beautiful display as well as those of her co-workers at Chartreuse and Company. They all share a consistent style, so the booths blended together seamlessly. It was a real feast for the eyes.
I think I would describe the style as French Industrial Chic. There was a lot of chippy paint, zinc, warm woods and sparkle.
I am kicking myself for not buying this dresser. Molly’s partner bought this off another dealer for super cheap. I spotted it when the dealer was setting up and thought about that very thing, but I think Gail had purchased it already. Oh well, can’t win them all!
Aren’t these wooden cogs cool? I think Sherry bought one of them.
I sold a ton of pieces, but brought my settee and sheet music dresser home with me. I think I would’ve sold them if it hadn’t rained on Sunday. Both pieces had a lot of interest, so I put them back in the shop.
The weekend was an overall success, but it always stinks when it rains at an antique fair, especially when you’re a dealer. I did get to meet some great bloggers and readers (like Sharon, Colleen, and others) and I made more than enough money to say it was worth it. Thanks for all of your well wishes about the event.
Some upcoming posts will include my Lucketts finds, some new projects, slipcovered wing chairs, how to start and run a business, and three giveaways! Stay tuned…
