LUCKY TRIP TO LUCKETTS

     Every summer we spend a week in a small beach town in Delaware with my hubby's family.  It's about a 10 hour drive for us from Ohio so sometimes we split the drive into 2 days. I've heard so much about Lucketts and knew I would love to go there someday.   I finally realized that Lucketts is almost right on the way to Delaware (duh)!  So we spent the night near Leesburg, VA and went to Lucketts the next morning.  Hubby took the kids to see a Civil War monument while I shopped.


  Let me just say, the place is HUGE!

~  I looked around outside first ~



Oh my stars . . .








Need a door?


I think this may have been the inspiration for the movie Monsters Inc.  : )



~ ~ now on to the inside ~ ~



You don't see a sunglasses display like this everyday.





I really loved this wicker rocking chair ~ just maybe not the cushion so much.







Isn't this china cabinet beautiful?


I think I may have left my heart there . . .



There are several floors of goodies so I didn't even have
time to see the whole thing.



You can get a snack at the Cowbell Kitchen ~ too cute!


So true!


I only bought a couple small things ~ we really didn't have any room in our car
due to all of the beach stuff we had packed.  
I considered leaving one of the kids there  : )

If you haven't ever been there, I hope you get to go sometime.
Allow lots of time for looking around and bring a big truck!

  1. Oh my! I could go crazy there.

    I have been looking for an old door for ages. The only doors I have seen are several hundred dollars at the local antique shops. I saw a beautiful old green door in on of your photos and the tag said $39. Maybe we should fly there and rent a truck to bring stuff home.

  2. I would go crazy in a place like that. I would have to tell Hubby to hide all the cash and cards from me. HA! HA!

    1. (sorry for the delete of the first try - I had too many typos so I copied, pasted, and edited, lol) Thank you for the mini tour. Luckett's is about a 5.5 hr drive for me, but I'm either going to hijack my husband on one of our trips to DC, or go with my two Panoply sisters and make a REAL trip of it! Luckett's spring market fell on the same weekend as Springfield Extravaganza this year, so S'field won, seeing as my one sister lives in Cincinnati, and we had a place to stay and her husband cooks for us. ;) (visiting from Pamela's)

  13. Oh my, I could spend hours in a store like this! I was drooling over the windows and the architecture pieces on the outside. I have heard a lot of mention of Lucketts on peoples blogs. I enjoyed seeing it! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
