Ok, so remember way back when I promised I’d share my Lucketts Spring Market finds? Well, it’s finally time! I finally got around to getting my pictures from my camera to my computer to share with you!
I couldn’t buy large pieces at Lucketts because I had to fit my finds into my suitcase, so the things I purchased are fairly small. But I love each one of them – not only for what they are, but also for the memories they conjure up when I look at them!
. . .
I found this cute red metal carrier in an adorable booth. I immediately was drawn to it because of the red. I knew it would look so cute in our kitchen! (The mason jars are from Hobby Lobby.)
This clock is from the same booth. I had been looking for an old clock and wanted a true vintage/antique, not a reproduction. I’m pretty sure this guy is the real deal since it has patent dates starting at 1908 on the back. What do you think? Real or fake?
Either way, I love it!
These coasters were actually from the same booth, too! I was drawn to them right away, just like the red carrier.
I checked out the price and it said $12.50. There were 6 coasters and I thought “well, they’re kinda expensive, but I love them, so I’ll just get 4, that will be $50.” I handed 4 coasters to the vendor and told her I wanted them and she proceeded to grab the other two coasters. I said, “oh, ALL 6 are $12.50?!” She nodded and I about jumped in the air right in front of her! $12.50 for 6 adorable coasters?! Yes please!!
The green star came from another booth that had such cool pieces. Almost everything in that booth was hand made out of reclaimed lumber and found pieces.
I was also given some incredibly generous gifts on my trip!
This beautiful preserved boxwood wreath was a gift from Marian aka Miss Mustard Seed. She said I could pick a gift from her booth for winning the Hometalk trip and I had been eyeing the wreath, so I grabbed it. Later (like, once I got home!) I realized that it was a little more expensive than I had thought. I felt like such a turd for picking such an expensive gift! I immediately emailed her to apologize and she was super sweet about it and said it was totally okay.
I totally owe her!!
This fun Hometalk bag was designed by Donna at Funky Junk Interiors and was given to the bloggers who stopped by the Hometalk booth on Sunday. Isn’t it cute?! I have already used it at another flea market since I’ve been back home!
I also received a $100 gift certificate to The Old Lucketts Store from Karen (The Graphics Fairy) and the owners of the store. When they gave me the certificate, I didn’t know what to say! I was in shock!
On Sunday, I checked out the store and decided it was time to use up my gift certificate. I looked and looked, wanting everything! But I finally decided on this adorable cabinet! It was over my gift certificate amount, but, of course, I just HAD to have it! So, I bought that baby and the amazing Karen had it shipped back home for me!
Yes, it has some weird green felt on the inside, but we’re going to fix it up (no, I’m NOT painting it!!) and we’re going to use it in our bathroom. I can’t wait till we get it up! It will be so cute!!

And since I still have pictures left over from the market that I haven’t shared, here’s a little bonus for ya! Enjoy!
