Were you one of the 10,000 or so happy shoppers at The Clarke County Fairgrounds this weekend? Our hearts are happy and our bodies tired, and we hope it was the epic weekend we envisioned for us all. We are so grateful you took the time to come see us at our new location, the pictures you posted were fabulous; we love being tagged and seeing all of the goodies you discovered. We are endlessly inspired by what moves you, and we try to reflect that in our search for new-to-you treasures.

A special thanks to the town of Berryville and their police department for helping us all get in and out of the Fairgrounds safely; it makes for a happy day when you don’t have to worry about traffic snafus. Also, we are eternally grateful for all that our staff and volunteers did to make this event, one of the jewels in our Lucketts Store crown, such a brilliant success. Your dedication and love for what you do are obvious for all to see.

So we’re rested, we’ve taken a deep breath and are re-energized to (believe it or not!) start thinking about Lucketts Spring Market 2018!

In the meantime, see you back at our homestead, The Old Lucketts Store!

3 Days left – What to Wear? http://www.luckettstore.com/3-days-left-what-to-wear/ Wed, 17 May 2017 09:30:30 +0000 http://www.luckettstore.com/?p=4098 Continue reading ]]>  

You look MARVELOUS darling! Seriously, you always do. But while we all have our best “I’ll look amazing in pictures” outfits, for Lucketts Spring Market, we recommend a mix of adorable AND practical. You want to make sure your clothes and shoes don’t get in the way of your shopping bliss.

From our personal “I wish I hadn’t worn stilettos to the farmer’s market” file, here are our BEST recommendations:

  1. Keep your eye on the sky. If it might rain, wear a parka and your rain boots. Nothing spoils a good time more quickly than being cold and wet. Wear layers and you will be ready for anything.
  2. Don’t carry a big bag, as tempting as it will be to try to throw your purchases in your   shoulder bag, it will get cumbersome quickly and in areas of tight space, you won’t want to risk bumping into displays with your purse.
  3. We will have wagons available for rent; perfect for carrying all of your small items A fanny pack (seriously!) is a smart idea for cash and credit cards. Keep your hands as free as possible; you will be glad you did when there is so much to treasure hunting to be done.
  4. Wear the “right” shoes. Cowboy boots? Awesome. Comfy flats? Perfect. Sneakers? Well done. High heels? Not recommended. The ground might be soft and you don’t want to spend the day prying your feet out of the dirt.

So, dress for success, you’ve got this. We can’t wait to see your smiling face; that smile makes any outfit work.

4 Days until Wine, Beer and Song http://www.luckettstore.com/wine-beer-and-song-4-days-to-go/ Mon, 15 May 2017 20:19:34 +0000 http://www.luckettstore.com/?p=4075 Continue reading ]]>

As if the news could get ANY better, Lucketts Spring Market will also be your chance to hear some amazing live music and experience a condensed version of that winery and brewery tour you’ve been planning since the weather turned glorious. Wear your scootin’-boogie boots, grab a tall one and stay a while.

Award winning singer/songwriter Adam Bruno, named one of Nashville’s Emerging Artists AND nominated for Pop Artist of the Year, will be joining us again on the Lucketts Spring Market stage. WHOO-HOO!!! His soulful and swoon-y voice has made him one of our favorites, not to mention a hot ticket in tours throughout the U.S. and Europe. Take it from us, you want to secure yourself a good spot when he’s rocking the house.

Listen to Adam with liquid refreshment in hand; we’re bringing Fabbioli Cellars and Vanish Brewery to you on ALL 3 Market days!

Family-owned and operated Fabbioli Cellars has over 30 years of winemaking experience; their wines have won some of the country’s most prestigious competitions (double gold, people!). We are fortunate to have them bringing their very best selections to The Clarke County Fairgrounds for us to sample and fall in love with. These folks are real people who serve Earth friendly wines and who love what they do as much as we love them for doing it. Lots of additional info here: FabbioliWines

Vanish Farmwood Brewery, our neighbor at The Old Lucketts Store, will be supplying the tall, frosty ones. Vanish is located on 53 acre Black Hops Farm, brewed with local ingredients, they offer a mind-bending variety of flavors for every palate. Did we mention that includes our namesake, Old Lucketts Store Light? Check them out here: vanishbeer

We literally CAN’T WAIT to get the party started…only a few more days to go!

Directions to Spring Market

It’s almost time to hitch your wagon and get on the road to The Clarke County Fairgrounds! Let’s review how to get there so you don’t waste ANY time on the road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The easiest way: Trust your navigation system OR the app of your choice and plug in this address:

890 W Main St. Berryville, VA 22611

For you old schoolers (it never hurts to have the directions in writing in case cell signal fails!)

 

From Washington D.C.:

Take I66 West into Virginia

At exit 67, take right onto Rt. 267 (Dulles Toll Road)

Keep on road through the Dulles Greenway toward Leesburg, Virginia

At Dulles Greenway exit 1A bear left onto Rt. 7 West

Turn Left at third traffic light past the Shenandoah River (business 7 East)

Turn left at Fairgrounds

 

From Rt. 81

Take 81 to Route 7 East (11.5 miles)

Turn right onto Rt. 7 Business

Turn left into Fairgrounds

See? It’s EASY. Police officers will also be on hand to direct you into the parking lot, so there’s nothing left up to chance. Now you’re ready to begin your weekend adventure.

The first and MOST IMPORTANT thing to do once you’re safely parked is to look UP and find the balloons! We will be floating balloons by our main entrance; that’s our beacon, our light in the window, to help you get inside the market quickly and easily and maximize your shopping and browsing and just BEING THERE time.
Have your ticket ready; if you’re picking them up at Will Call, the balloons at the entrance will get you there.

 

We are so excited to see you in JUST 5 days!

When we say it’s a family affair, it really is! Men, women and children will enjoy a fun and full weekend of shopping, playing, eating, drinking and toe-tapping … only 8 more days until it all begins!

Grab your partner, grab the kids and make a day (or two) of it at the Lucketts Spring Market! Seriously, no need to keep checking your watch or your phone because you have ALLLLL the time in the World and more fun than you could ever imagine.

Why is this? Because your nearest and dearest are with you; but enjoying their own version of awesome on market weekend. (You’ve been warned … they may not ever want to leave).

What are they up to?

If they’re little ones, they will be having a ball in our Children’s Activity Area. It will be like stepping back in time, they’ll be enjoying old schoolyard games, pony rides, their own glamping tents and so much more. Here are some highlights:

  • The Bubble Zone (Hula hoop size bubbles!)
  • Croquet
  • Bear Bean Bag Toss (you gotta see the little fish-shaped bean bags)
  • Sawhorse ring toss
  • Badminton

If they’re not-so-little, there’s a chair with their name on it in the Beer and Wine Garden.
Fabbioli Cellars will be serving up their very best and Vanish Brewery will be in the house serving plenty of cold ones, including our namesake Lucketts Store Light. You definitely, DEFINITELY want to try this.

Oh, and did we mention we have the talented Adam Bruno and his band from Nashville joining us again this year providing live music that practically guarantees boot-scootin’-boogie. We have it on good authority that this particular location has been referred to as “The End of the Rainbow.” Get there!
