Antique Shopping in Lucketts
Remember the old metal Care Bears lunch box that you used to bring to school? Or the hours spent drawing away on the Etch a Sketch? Flash back to the past as you stroll down memory lane, seeing and touching items that you remember from a time that doesn’t seem so long ago. Remembering your past is just part of the journey.
You will find exquisite furnishings, some finished or with great potential, awaiting your final touch. Take photos of ideas while you have the opportunity to feel and touch instead of just viewing online.
Make sure you check days and hours of operation before heading out. Some stores keep various hours and close by 4:00 pm. The ideal days for quiet exploration are Mondays and Wednesdays between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. If you don’t mind the occasional crowd, shops are open until 5:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
