Lucketts, Virginia is located just over the Potomac River from Maryland on U.S. Route 15 and is very northern Virginia. Lucketts is known for its antiques, but this is the first time I have stopped and check out the stores for myself. The most memorable one (at least to me) is in an old repurposed barn. The old grain silo has been painted pink with black polka dots. Definitely great advertising!
This stop had several outbuildings as well as the old farmhouse, all offering goodies for viewing. I found a couple tea related things in the barn itself:
(This was a fancy tea cart with brass wheels and edging around the tray as well as inlays. It was a bit too fancy for me, but definitely very pretty!)
One of the outbuildings was devoted to vintage clothing, including vintage hats:
From here we drove a couple of miles up the road to the next antique store, the Old Lucketts Store.
This stop also had loads of outbuildings as well as two houses to look through. They were both old Victorian Houses I would guess based on how they were inside. One was probably a farmhouse at one time. My favorite antique stores are the ones in old homes, especially Victorians with all their nooks and crannies!

We went in the house below first. This house had beautiful jewelry and other fashion goodies.
Even before entering the house there was a rack of hats:
By this point I was overwhelmed with all the different places, and I forgot to get a picture of the Old Luckett Store itself--it is the green building in the background behind the hats. This store had everything--vintage clothes, linens, china, some furniture,
(including this pretty wrought iron tea cart)
and some pretty silverplate.
My newest "easter egg" I'm looking for as a part of my antiquing hunt is an assortment of different vintage silverplate teaspoons. I love mismatched tea trios on a table, and I think different vintage spoons would be a fun addition. I haven't bought any spoons yet, but I enjoy the search!
