Old Lucketts Store, Part I

I can’t remember exactly how I found the Old Lucketts Store. Clicking through Pinterest or other blogs, maybe. Anyway, I was very happy to discover that it’s located in Leesburg, Virginia, not that far from where we live.

How to describe Lucketts? Overwhelming the first time. I couldn’t take it all in, even by looking at my photos afterwards. There are three floors in the main building shown here:

Lucketts Store

Each floor is filled with all kinds of stuff for decorating your home, with an emphasis on shabby chic. I narrowed the photos down to twenty, but it was hard. That’s why I’m splitting this post into three parts.

Here are a few things you’ll find in the main store:

mercury glass

I happen to love mercury glass because it give the look of silver without all that polishing.

soaps

Aren’t these soaps wrapped beautifully?

Being the mom of two grown sons, I was particuarly taken with this sign:

Call

I liked this reminder too:

When?

There’s just something about vintage typewriters and fans. . . .

Olivetti typewriter

In addition to having great stuff, the people who run the store present everything so beautifully. I especially like this little arrangement:

Part II on Monday.

Great weekend, everyone!

    I love these assemblages. I have a few corners at home that look a little bit like that only with the cats it’s not easy, I can’t display anything breakable. I didn’t know this was called mercury glass. Makes sense.
    The typewriter is great. And that pillow.

    You could probably spend hours at this store, uncovering all of these gems, and still not see everything. It’s so eclectic and fun. You can’t find this stuff at a big box store.
