…luckett’s low-down

Friday VIP day was just so lovely at Luckett’s. If you have not had the pleasure of shopping at it, I will show you my day. Last year they gave out these cute, stripy bags.

I arrive about 9:15, the gates open at 10:00. At this point the line was longer than it was last year on Friday. All beautiful ladies in their sweet summer wares. I loved watching everyone gather with their girlfriends for a day of shopping. (Ok, there were a few men in line as well. Real men love vintage.)

The smarty-pants brought their carts and extra shopping bags to tote items. One thing I’ve learned from shows it that you do not want to carry around huge items and you also don’t want to go back and forth to your car to drop them off….and you also don’t want to leave them with the vendor you bought them from because at the end of the day when you are dirty and tired you will have to go collect said heavy wares and that’s no fun either. I know this because I do it every year. Next year must get shopping cart!

I was excited to see two vendors in particular this year – Miss Mustard Seed (of course) and Old Thyme Marketplace. Since the line was already down the grassy field by MMS, I headed over to OT. Check out her set up. To die for.

It took all my willpower not to go home with this little cupboard. I just don’t have the space for it! MMS killed it this year. It was her best tent/s every and it was hard to not want one of everything. I decided to wait in line because I could pass up some special pieces. I will show you everything I bought in the next post.

Great job, Luckett’s! I hope you are all resting after your hard work, but I know the call for hunting is greater than sleep!

…favorite things friday: pompoms

I go for anything that is cute, but can also look classy. My answer to this from a pillow perspective is POM POMs! I heart pompoms on sweaters, blankets, curtains and pillows. If I get pillows custom made they will always have pompoms. Here’s a few of my own.

…favorite things friday: architectural doormat

I heart the girls behind Antique Farmhouse and Decor Steals. They now have their very own site, Bits of Vintage, where you can purchase wares that are not a steal of the day, but a steal anytime. (They are not even paying me for this, I just love the products!)

Bits of Vintage has lots of fun decor, but also practical decor that makes a big statement. I know we do not often look at a doormat counting for anything, but what is the first thing that people see when they arrive at your door? I know I look at the door mat! I think sometimes we get distracted by colored mats with fun sayings or logos or we get trapped with thinking that a cheap-0 rubber mat will suffice. Hmm. If the doormat is a precursor to what is inside, don’t we want it to look stunning?

I bought my iron pineapple mat when we moved into our home. It was one of the first things i purchase because i wanted it to reflect the inside. Not only has it lasted 7 years and will probably last 77 more, but it is PRETTY! AND WE LIKE PRETTY, DON’T WE?!

Check out the one that they are selling at Bits of Vintage. Architectural Doormat found here for $49.50.

Beautiful! Makes me want to rub my shoes on it, ring the doorbell and come in for a cup of tea! xo
