Lucketts Spring Market and Victoria Auctions

Hey ya’ll!!!! Looks like I’ve been as absent as this spring has been! I don’t know what the weather has been like where ya’ll live…but so far, this spring has been cold, wet and dreary. Not exactly the perfect outdoor flea market hunting type weather that I was hoping for. Though, some of you may love the rain…in fact it might make you do things like this. I’ve mostly been primping around the house and the garden, but there are some pretty amazing events coming up that might make one come out from their cave!!

Lots to see and do at Lucketts! (Photo from blondemomentintheburbs.blogspot.com)

Have you guys ever been to the Luckett’s Spring Market? For those of you that live near Leesburg, VA…this annual event is a real treat!! I used to live right down the road and I can remember attending this event when I was younger with my mom. Back then, it was MUCH  smaller and was mostly comprised of high end dealers. Now, the event takes over 15 beautiful acres in Northern VA and offers antiques, cool retro finds, funky home decor and more!

I think this bench would be perfect for my front porch!!

Need aromatherapy? I love the smell of fresh herbs for the garden!

Need a break from shopping? Rest a while in one of these funky vintage chairs.

How about a day trip to Nottoway County for a good country auction?

Don’t want to drive to Northern VA? How about a day trip to Wilsons, VA? If you live in the central VA area, and love attending a good country auction, then I highly suggest you sign up to receive updates from Victoria Auctions. There’s a great auction going on Saturday, May 18 at 10am that will take place at a beautiful country farmhouse in Nottoway County. I don’t know about ya’ll….forget the contents of the house, just GIVE ME THIS HOUSE!! How gorgeous is that place?!

Here’s a smattering of the goods up for auction:

And who doesn’t love a nice pie safe?

So make sure you get out this month and attend one of the many fun antiquing events going on in our region! And if you go…drop me a line and tell me what treasure you brought home! Happy Hunting!!
