This past weekend, The Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, Virginia had it's annual Spring Market. There were over 170 vendors selling vintage, antique and shabby chic wares. Brenton, our 8 month old son Liam and I spent Saturday searching for treasures! This is what I came home with...
Shortly after arriving, I came across these two really cool boxes! You know how you feel when you find an item that doesn't require any second thought? Well that was how I felt when I saw these. Actually, the price is what really sealed the deal, but also the fact that I knew they would be perfect for my studio! They were hand painted by Shawna Jeannine, the vendor who was selling them. She had a variety of beautiful hand painted items.
My next purchase came from Carolyn Elizabeth Designs. She had some wooden spools of linen that I fell in love with. The natural color inspired me the most. While my first thought was to use it for my packaging, I decided that I will use it in the memory book I am creating for my son. I also thought it will be great for craft projects!
I found these lovely handmade tile coasters from Charming Finds for my husband for Father's Day. Shh, it's a surprise! Brenton loves sailing, so I thought he would enjoy these. Along with the coasters, I also purchased a metal tree with painted leaves and birdies. It will be a wonderful addition to both my studio and craft show booth!
My fabulous finds from this years Spring Market!
I am already looking forward to going again next year!

The Lucketts Spring Market is definitely worth the drive. If you have never been to this event, I highly recommend marking your calendar for next year and making your way to Northern Virginia. Gather a few friends and make a weekend out of it. You wont be disappointed!
