Road Trip to Luckett’s Spring Market 2012!

Bucket List Item # 41: Go to Luckett’s Spring Market
I was so excited to be able to go up to Luckett’s this year!  I’ve been counting down the days since a year ago when I first heard about it when I got into blogging. 
I drove up from Virginia Beach and drove the 3 & half hour drive up to Angie’s house where I stayed Friday night.  It was the first time we’ve met, it was the first time I’ve met a “blogger” I’ve become friends with in real life, it was the first time I’ve demolition a shower (what? Yah – that happened!)
Side note for Angie’s Family: They’re big, and wonderful, and full of energy.  I loved meeting them with my whole heart and grateful for their hospitality.  However, if you ever journey to their home, be ready to be put to work.  Let’s just say that we ended up at Lowe’s that night, and demolitioned a shower that her hubs originally started THREE YEARS AGO.  Apparently I just give off DIY energy and make things happen!)

Alright back to Luckett’s, so here I am all packed up and ready for my drive! ROAD TRIP!

  4. Pam! (Can I call you Pam?) It's so great to put a face to a name! FYI, I'm really almost done with my little table... I hit a few hiccups along the way, but if you will still feature me on your blog, I would be SO excited! It's too bad we don't live closer- I would love to be real life friends and hang out! Sounds like Lucketts is amazing! I would love to go there!

  7. I was DROOLING over every picture! You are a LUCKY gal, my dear - so jealous. I am absolutely going next year. I love the letters the best because I've been on the hunt for one. I wish I had told you so you could have picked it up and sent it to me, lol. Did you find things to be very affordable or costly? I saw what you bought, but was there anything else? Glad you had a great weekend! xo Jenna

  10. it's amazing to me that Luckett's is such a destination! I grew up near there and it was just a little town on the way to somewhere else. I'm going home this weekend so couldn't go to the market, I hope to next year!

  11. Every time Miss Mustard Seed posts a blog about Lucketts I get to relive my day. My daughter and I went both days! I drove from Central PA and lucky for me my daughter lives within a half hour. The second day we took her husband with a pocket full of money! So she got to purchase some of the furniture that we saw on Saturday! Had a great time!
