Vintage Funk: Second hand, antique hunting

Yesterday I took a little 3 hour retreat to see some of my old friends, the antique shops. Here are some snaps at what I found. It’s an experience, as the “good ones” are about 45 minutes away, with a beautiful drive through horse country on the way. I love the whole experience of the hunt. The drive, the search, the finds. Antique, second-hand shopping helps me clear my head of all the sludge and muck in everyday life. I can disappear for a couple of hours into someone else’s world and come home to merge an old lifestyle with my new one. It’s oddly refreshing to incorporate someone else’s vintage funk into my Mom, Designer, Artist world. My tots love the crazy things I come home with. These vintage finds come from the sweet The Old Lucketts Store in the town of  Lucketts in Leesburg, VA.
