Not only did I get to go to Brimfield for the first time last month, but I also went to Lucketts.
If you’ve not heard of it, Lucketts is another popular antique/flea market event held in Virginia each year. I believe it was born from the original Old Lucketts store in Leesburg and expanded to this outdoor market/event.
They definitely take the time to make it very visually appealing and inviting. While Brimfield has a lot of that as well, I think Luckett’s show is more curated. Though to me, that doesn’t matter either way. I just love the hunt.
Both markets had amazing treasures and I’d say both were rather expensive. But I am always on the hunt for budget decor because I usually can’t afford to pay full retail for things.
That said, there were bargains to be found at both markets.
I wasn’t looking for anything specific at either market. Because it was my first time to both, I wanted it more for the experience this time around.
Luckett’s market was smaller and much more manageable. It was easy to see it all in a day. It felt less overwhelming to me than Brimfield.
It’s a great place to find that one-of-a-kind piece for your home. Look at this giant amazing table/island! It was about 12-15 feet long!
I also loved this weathered dresser. Sadly it was already sold or that would’ve come home with me!
I’ve been on a kick with vintage dishes lately, especially anything green. These were so pretty.
And this display was a stunner. Loved those leather chairs with the giant cabinet behind them.
This piece had a beautiful wood finish. It looked as if someone took the time to sand and it strip it down to bare wood.
I have a few regrets about things I passed up at Lucketts. I’ll definitely go back again next year and I will be better prepared to take more treasures home!
