And the Leesburg Premium Outlets.
This is the type of damage 4 friends and a 17 ft UHaul can do in one weekend:
We drove up to Leesburg Friday afternoon, hit the outlets for a few hours and went out to a fantastic dinner at The Wine Kitchen in downtown Leesburg.
We were up bright and early Saturday to buy pie
and get in line for the Lucketts Fair.
Because we had a UHaul we couldn't fit in the regular parking location so we got to park right outside the entrance.
It was so convenient to run back and forth to the truck and unload our purchases so we didn't have to carry them around for hours. The fair was amazing and we had a lot of good finds. But, you do have to act quick because things don't stick around for long. We had the most luck with a vendor called Chartreuse and Co. They had a space at the fair but they also have a barn in Frederick, Maryland, that they have converted to a store (That is basically my dream for my future - their place definitely provided lots of inspiration!). We drove out to their farm to pick up a huge table that I purchased from them at the fair and fell in love with practically everything in their barn.
Overall, it was a very fun and productive day. Not only did I find some things for my own house, but I also found lots of furniture for the bedroom I am working on at my Mom's house.
And I am so impressed that my friends hung with me every step of the way - not everyone can match my stamina and excitement for an antique fair but they were right there with me!
Thanks Shiloh, Lauren and Andrea! It was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again!
