The Luckett's Fair part 3 ~Wrap up

Hello friends!

there has been alot of buzz about Luckett's Spring Market that happened last weekend. It was sooo much fun and soooo inspirational! But boy talk about too much stimulation! Although a week has gone by now, and I think everyone has kinda settled back into regular routine. Ive noticed alot of shopkeepers have refreshed and updated their spaces and have posted some beautiful pictures. the life of a retailer never slows down!

I wanted to share with you the last bit of my snaps that i took while i was enjoying myself in my own little heaven at Luckett's .

 Gorgeous Gorgeous European Antiques
 I wanted to buy EVERYTHING in this booth. I absolutely Love their style ~ so clean and eloquent and so many natural elements. I adore the way they incorporate the outdoors with their decor. I mean this branches display draped across a handcrafted HUgE Farm table hung with mason jars filled with candles was to die for! How clever and what a statement. If i were to give out awards for the most awesome Tabletop display Ekster Antiques would definitely win hands down!!

 Notice how they used old (i think roofing) slate in the place setting

Simply gorgeous

Oak Leaf Wreaths
 Tons of these Antique Mirrors ~ they had to be at least 9' tall!!

 I was sooo in love with this zinc topped table! This was my favorite piece of furniture of the day. I would've snatched it up in a heartbeat but it was a bit pricey for me (around $800). I even went back later in the day so I could take more pictures of it and try to be just be satisfied with drooling over it on my camera~ but when i went back it was GONE!! I know its not healthy to be jealous but dang im sooo envious of the lucky person that walked away with "my" coffee table!
This was a constant image throughout the day. Boys in pink shirts carrying furniture and goods out the gates! So many treasures flying out of the Fair! These hardworking boys got their workout for the day!

And Last but not Least...

Through the garden Gate

that mirror was suppose to be mine but unfortunately it was SOLD by the time i got there!
Walking into this booth was kinda like taking a vacation ~ its like you felt as if you were taking to another place full of happy!

I'm fortunate enough to live about 90 minutes from Through the Garden Gate store and i can honestly say its one of my favorite places. Plenty of Gorgeous Faux fabric Flowers everywhere you look, a sea of heavenly White furniture, burlap and linens soften every inch, one of a Kind Handcrafted Pieces, Iron and Garden accessories to make you Swoon, and now Magnolia Pearl!!  And also lets not forget about the HUGE antique Mall that is in the same building!
Aren't these repurposed industrial lights so cool!
Through the Gardens Gates booth was pure joy! I loved every bit of it!

Well Folks that all of the Luckett's Eye Candy that i have left. I had a blast and can't wait till next year. ~ Who knows maybe i'll try to be a vendor next year and see what its like on the other end of the party!
Thank you to Luckett's for putting on such a special event!!!

Have a great day ~ Everyday!

Luckett's Spring Fair ~ part 2

Hello Loves!

My most favorite thing about this time of year is the Flea Markets and Yard Sales! I'm not ashamed to admit i am a die hard JUNKER :) ! And one event i particularly look forward to every year is the Luckett's Spring Fair.  the abundance of creativity is just oozing from every booth. I couldve just stayed all day admiring all the displays and chatting with my fellow bloggers.
 Ahhh it was a dream (ok that was a bit cheesy) but it was some kind a F U N!!

I took quite a handful of pics so i thought i'd spread them out into a couple of separate posts ~ really it took me 2 days for my brain to finally settle down from all the excitement, i didn't want to overload your brain too :)

Get ready to drool...

love big Industrial Letters ~ especially E

wow! if you needed Antique Ceiling tile this was the place!

anyone for an Olive Basket?

Her booth was so inviting the color palate chosen was just so soothing. Honestly i was surprised i was able to get a pic of that union jack dresser I thought for sure it would've been gone early~ it was all over blog land i couldn't wait to see it in person. Great Job, Christen your booth was fantastic!!

Lovely booth she traveled all the way from Raleigh, I she hope she comes back next year her booth was so refreshing. Def go check out her page to see her pics because by the time i reached her booth Alot was already gone!

Awesome Booth ~ She's a Big Fan of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Gorgeous painted furniture and elegantly displayed vignettes. Im absolutely going to make it to their next big monthly warehouse sale in Hagerstown, Md!
beautifully done server repurposed into bathroom vanity
