The Day After the Lucketts Spring Market

I am POOPED! I have NO idea how the vendors who do this kind of show all the time do it! It is a TON of work and I have such respect for all of the work that goes into making a space look great… having said that though even my fingers hurt as I type this… it’s time to get back to the gym I think… but first some R&R!

I’ll share with you some pictures of my setup… I brought WAY to much stuff, which would have been ok except for the rain…


There’s my Supper Awesome Hubby (SAH) on the left helping “stage”!

Below is my eldest, Sierra, who is almost 20… I know she doesn’t looked thrilled but she volunteered to help again this year… I think the “pain” of the show is a little like childbirth… you forget the pain and only remember the good stuff Smile and yes she walked around barefoot for quite some time, you know the old saying… you can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl!!!

It rained late afternoon on Saturday and we scrambled to get everything covered then uncovered then covered for close… but Sunday was a big surprise, no rain and a great crowd of shoppers. While I didn’t sell everything I sold a lot of pieces I REALLY didn’t want to have to bring home and I sold more than last year and last year’s show had perfect weather!

I’m so sorry I didn’t bring my camera in on Sunday, the forecast was calling for scattered thunderstorms and I didn’t want to take the chance, so I can’t show you other booths, but let me tell you there was lots to ooh and ah about! If you didn’t make it this year (you know who you are), please do what you can to make it next year!

I did get lucky and found time to chat with some blogging friends, Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co., Martha @ Martha Leone Design, Deb @ Confessions of a Craigslist Junkie, Christen @ Blue Egg Brown Nest, Marian @ Miss Mustard Seed, Natalie @ Monday Morning Press but I know I missed so many more… well there’s always next year…

I’m going to grab a glass of wine and relax on the sofa and peruse the HUGE Restoration Hardware look book I just got… now if my SAH will massage my feet I will be pretty darn happy!

Good night…

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!

  1. You’re the best neighbor! Looking forward to next year … or I will be after I get some rest! 🙂


  2. Your booth looked great! I was so impressed by how many great pieces you had. Was great to meet you, hope to see you around RVA soon! Enjoy a restful evening:)


  3. Your booth looked great again this year! I was right across from you and should’ve come over to chat. I cannot believe that girl helping you is your daughter. I seriously thought she was your younger sister or something. You look so young, I can’t believe you have a 20 year old daughter!


  4. Wow, with all the things you took, no wonder you’re shattered! Must be a bit like a house move. Glad you enjoyed it, now time for a well earned rest x


  5. I’m sorry I missed it, girl. Next year we will do a neighborhood road trip.


  6. It’s great to hear that the iffy weather didn’t dampen your sales! I’m really bummed that I wasn’t there this year … still haven’t quite perfected that ‘two places at one time’ physics thing yet. I’m working on it. 🙂


  7. WoW!! You space looked so good. Bummer about the rain, I am bummed I had never heard of Luckett’s when I was living in MD.


  8. Wish I could have been there to see (and shop!) your space – looks like you had some amazing pieces. I’m so bummed I was traveling! Next year I’m going to have to schedule all travel plans around Lucketts 🙂


A comment for me, really? Thanks so much!
