For those of you who have been deprived of the experience that is the Old Luckett’s Store, let me give you a little crash course. A little over an hour from DC, Luckett’s is home to endless rooms of antiques, junk-tiques and new creations inspired by old ones. You pull up to an old Victorian-style house with a wrap-around porch strewn with dressers, buffets, lamps, chests, desks and all other kinds of unique finds. Once inside of the store, you’re faced with rooms of furniture, accessories, decorations – even jewelry and clothes.
As you might expect, Luckett’s is a time warp. You walk in and lose yourself in row, after row, after row of antiques. You find yourself wondering where that enormous china cabinet could fit in your studio apartment, when you could ever wear those lace evening gloves from the 1950s – and who they might have belonged to? Antique pieces are always full of stories, but Luckett’s also makes these pieces original. They feature pieces that have been brightened up with a coat of varying pastel. Old windows are turned into wall art. Doors are converted to coffee tables. All of the pieces are unique, creative and interesting; they are not for the Ethan Allen shopper.
Why am I telling you about this little hidden treasure now?
This weekend they are hosting their one and only Annual Groundhog Sale February 3, 4 and 5 from 10 am to 5 pm each day. If you haven’t been to Luckett’s, it is the perfect time for an inaugural visit – you’ll undoubtedly find something that makes your heart skip a beat with a price tag that won’t make your head spin.
