NOTE: If you left click on the photo it will enlarge and if you left click on the enlarged photo it will enlarge once more....good for seeing the details.

This was my favorite stop in Leesburg ~ LUCKETTS STORE!
As soon as I saw it I knew it would be. Just look at all the wonderful stuff!!

Katie found something immediately.
"C" for Charlotte of course!

First stop was the cashier's desk. May I take pictures here? Yes you may!
I took a bunch!
Including one of a squirrel with pink paper ears!

There's more than one building at Lucketts and a lot of carport like buildings on the grounds. The photos of the bedroom filled with butterflys and the angel below it were taken inside this yellow building ~ I love the polka dot shutters!

But back inside the main building we go. This dress form made the perfect jewelry display. So perfect that most of the necklaces were gone!
Duct Tape! Nice touch!

Mandy liked this display. I'm still trying to decide what I think of it! Kind of reminds me of The Addams Family!

This room was beautiful. The displays thoughout the store were fantastic.
Look ~ Gail, Katie and Mandy (her arm & bag at least) are all in one photo!

We headed back outside to check out the displays there.

Here's the two photos inside the polka dot shutters building! It was so pretty inside.

Katie really liked the "hello" sign but passed on buying it.

I found a few things that I didn't pass on!
Some bottles, a bit of lace, two sparkly trees, a few crystals and a photograph.

I'm going to "plant" these little trees inside a pretty cup ~ there were two more and I wish I'd bought them too! They're covered in beautiful glass beads.

I really like the photo of the young girl but the back of the frame was the deciding factor in buying it. W. A. Brown ~ a furniture dealer & funeral director!!
Mr. Brown was multi-talented man.

I will return to Lucketts Store. Their 11th Annual Spring Market is coming up on May 22nd & 23rd. Over 100 antique dealers will be there. Hmmmmm........

Make sure you take a look at the'll make you smile (and drool a little too!)

What a great place. Those polka dot shutters are so cute. I think I could easily kill a day in a place like that.

Wonderful store!!!! Wish we had places like that where I live. I giggle at the sticker on the picture. My parents moved their furniture store to a huge old building that used to sell furniture, caskets, antiques and reupolstered furniture and sold jewelry!!! I guess people had to do what they had to do to make a living!! Love your blog and TFS!!!

Hi Marie, You really had a fun trip to Leesburg visiting all those amazing shops! I'm in love with that glittery "Bonjour" swag and aren't those shutters with the carved tree too cute? I'm glad you found some sweet treasures to take home. Mr. Brown had really been multi-talented.
Have a wonderful Sunday! I'll head over to the flea market this morning.

Didn't you just feel as though your head would spin around constantly so you wouldn't miss seeing everything? Your pictures are just wonderful-I love the one of the pan of clothespins...great notecard material. The treasures you purchased are lovely. many fun things to see and do in this smallish town. I can't wait to go back! Thanks for sharing your fun with us.

This soooo inspired me to open my consignment store again! Oh what fun. This is what dreams are made of. I'd give it a little spin...add a gnome garden for sure and sell magical mushrooms!
I'm so happy you could go and I wish I could too. Perhaps one day, I'll get on a big jet plane and come see Lucketts with you. Have a great week my friend!
