The Old Lucketts Store in Photos


If you ever find yourself in northern Virginia, the Old Lucketts Store, just outside of Leesburg, is an absolute must-visit.



The weekend that I met Janet of The Empty Nest in Warrenton, VA, I also visited Lucketts for the first time.  I already want to go back with a truck and trailer! :)

Lucketts is the home of Miss Mustard Seed and numerous other vendors, and it's filled to the brim with vintage furniture, upcycled pieces, all sorts of collectibles, garden decorations, unique smalls, metalwork, architectural salvage, and more.  The shop is magnificent in its variety and quality of offerings, and I'm envious of anyone who lives close enough to go to it on a regular basis.

Let's take a look around...

Even the front porch is overflowing with amazing finds like this zinc-topped drop leaf table.

I wish I'd taken more photos because the personalities and styles of the spaces varied so widely.   What you see below is just just a tiny fraction of what's at Lucketts.  Forgive me, please?  I was too busy ooohing and aaahing my way through three stories of retail heaven.



Get a load of the distressed painted floor and all those leaded glass windows!

The third-floor landing was one of my favorite spots in the store with all its natural light and those insanely comfortable (but pricy) grainsack wing chairs.

Besides the shop itself, there are also multiple open-air outbuildings filled with even more goodies.







Loved these little sheds!


As tempted as I was by many of the beautiful items the Lucketts vendors offered, I practiced restraint and came home with two boxes of Miss Mustard Seed's new milk paint--in Linen and Kitchen Scale.  I've already painted an old wood frame in Linen and I'm deliriously in love with the way this paint crackles and flakes.  More on that later...

Hope you enjoyed this little peek of a gem of a store. My photos only scratch the surface!

  3. GREAT shots! It was super crowded when I was there back in may so I couldn't really take in all the beauty that is there. Everything seemed pretty pricey, but tons of eye candy for sure!

  4. I want to go to Lucketts so bad!!! My husband is from PA so we go back to visit his family once or twice a year. Lucketts is only about two hours from his hometown, but we just haven't been able to make it there yet. Someday soon we'll make it happen!

  6. Oh Erin: aaahhhhh! I've wanted to go there for ages and now I simply MUST go. How to restrain yourself? Maybe if I go when it's cold and rainy, things won't look quite so tempting? hmmmm.
