Lucketts 2014 Spring Market, Part Two

I was asked what I enjoyed the most about going to the Lucketts Spring Market…

~ ~ and my answer (according to the “questioner”) was indicative of me . .

Seeing and being with great friends of course . . . and then the shopping!

However, of the thousands of people attending . . shopping was definitely primary!!!

Kim (Savvy Southern Style) and I for some reason thought that the Market opened at 9 a.m.

~ ~ so with hubbies in tow, we left our hotel at 7:15 a.m. to drive to Lucketts.

We got a great parking spot. In the Community Center . .

~ ~ much of the grass parking was under water from the almost 5 inches of rain they received.

So after 2 hours of “hanging out” before the Fair opened . . we discovered wonderful booths.

Even the “hubbies” perused the many antiques and vintage wares . . .

I must say they were great sports!!!

Was admiring the trophy lamp and chair with that gorgeous bird pattern fabric.

As soon as the gates opened, many standing in line headed directly to Marian’s booth!

And after almost 5 hours of being at the Fair . . .

We found these guys . . . sitting on the bench (would that be the “husbands’ bench?) . .

~ ~ Patiently waiting for us to complete our rounds of the booths . .

At this point . . we decided that they deserved a great lunch.

It was a beautiful day of great friends and shopping. . .

~ ~ what more could you ask for!

I was so busy taking in the many beautiful things there . .

~ ~ that I realized I did not take as many photos as I should have (bad blogger) !!

Watch for some great photos of the Lucketts Fair over at Kim’s. . she took lots of pictures!

Have a most wonderful day!!!

  1. Looks like you guys had a blast!

  2. Lovely photos – thank you for sharing. It gives an idea of the scope of Luckett’s. I went to Springfield Extravaganza, and honestly, it’s getting out of control – too big! Over 2,000 vendors!

  3. It is wonderful. I would love to go one year! We are a lot alike. I would totally forget to take pictures too. Lol I would have to take my daughter along so she could take pics and I could shop. Haha I love the old doors. I love everything.

  4. So fun to see the fair through your eyes, Shirley. Kristen’s booth looks amazing! Apparently Sunday was a much better day as far as the parking goes at the fair.

  5. Sounds like a great time, Shirley! Those doors are fantastic. I would have been admiring them for way too long, especially since I would have no place to use them. It looks like you had some time to scope out the booths to hit while you were waiting. I’m sure I would have come home with too much stuff!

  6. You got some great shots. It was a blast and I am still recovering!

  7. okay, can i say that I am so jealous…and you even brought the hubby. can’t wait to hear all about it and see what you bought.

  8. What wonderful booths and items. I would love a couple of those doors. Don’t know what I would do with them but I would figure it out! Thanks for sharing with us!

  9. What great booths and items, Shirley! I would love to visit one day too. It looks like you had a great time. The doors are fabulous! Great pictures!

  10. You took some great pics! That place looked like a TON of fun to shop at. Glad you didn’t caught in the rain during the event too.

  11. Looks like y’all had a wonderful time, Shirley! I’m so proud of you and Kim for taking your husbands. How cool for them to hang out together while the two of y’all had such fun!

  12. Looks like you and Kim had a wonderful time. It’s so nice when your friends husbands get along with your husband. So many times they have nothing in common. Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful treasures that came home with you.
    Have a great week.

  13. How fun, Shirley! Those doors are awesome! I saw a couple of them that I would love to have! The hubbies really were good sports. After 5 hours, I would have found mine in the same spot…on his cell phone! Looks like a great way to spend the day!

  14. Looks like it was great fun!

  15. I think it’s great when retailers have comfortable “man chairs” available. They surely must realize that if the man is comfortable, then the lady can shop longer and spend more cash with them!!! The Macy’s here in Lee’s Summit has beautiful “man lounges” near the ladies’ dressing rooms where they can kick back in comfortable soft seating and watch TV. It’s the perfect setup!

    I’m glad it didn’t rain on the day of!!! Five inches is a lot of rain!

    So happy you had a good time. I just know you brought back a truck load!!! 🙂

  16. I know you guys had a blast!

  17. I’m new to your blog and I loved it right a way! I have a new blog Anne’s Attic – Design. I would love it if you would take the time to check out my blog and let me know what you think. I have a long ways to go in order for it to look like yours. A new camera would help but that will come in time. Thanx XX

  18. How fun! What great guys to go along on the adventure! If I had gone, I know I would have headed straight for Marian’s booth, too. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Those hubbies sure were great sports!
    I am enamored by those wonderful doors.
    Looks like you all had a great time.

  20. So glad it cleared up for the rair!!! I wish I had been there, I see lots of great stuff!!!

  21. Lots of fun treasures to be had and seen Shirley, what a great sport your hubbies were 🙂 I can’t believe Kristen was selling her gorgeous chair!

  22. Jeanette Price says

    Wow! It looks like you had a great day and lots to feast your eyes on. Just walking around and getting ideas or taking pictures..I wish I was there too. What a fun time!

  23. I spotted a seltzer bottle I liked, and the doors were fabulous. When will you tell what you bought?

  24. OMG what great things there was to snap up. My hubby would’ve had to do some serious restraining. I am so happy you had a great time and sorry you had to wait but so worth it and I hope your picked up some great items.
