Seek and Ye Shall Find

At the risk of sounding like Holly Go-Lightly I had a beautiful, whimsical weekend bike riding through the neighborhood of Bethesda with David (where we spotted Malia Obama during lunch!!), checking out the cool video projection on the Hirschorn museum with my good friend Erin, and another round of awesome pizza at District Pi on a warm night. And that was just Saturday. Sunday was spent riding out to the beautiful countryside in Leesburg, Virginia to go antique and vintage shopping with one of my best girlfriends, Melissa. We had a crazy day-long road trip to visit every furniture and antique shop including Nadeau, Home Goods, and of course Ikea. I'm talking 10am to 10pm.

We had the amazing fortune of stumbling upon one of the largest antique markets of the year in Leesburg. The Lucketts annual Spring Market brought dozens and dozens of antique sellers from all over to this wide pasture. We spent hours hunting for one-of-kind treasures; Melissa looking for home furnishings and me looking for props for photo shoots. I was so overwhelmed and in heaven that I left my camera in my bag to make room room for carrying the full load of two bags. 

These photos are of an outdoor antique sale we came upon less than half a mile from the Spring Market. We both instantly started squealing with the anticipation of finding those perfect pieces to accompany our homes, our personal spaces. I can't wait to start propping shoots with some of the finds!

Melissa and her great canisters for $1!


  1. oh wow! i'm so jealous. that stuff all looks so cool. how lucky that you just happened upon this! been meaning to make the "trek" out to leesburg for years. now it's definitely on the summer to-do list.

  2. Leesburg is incredible! But the surrounding towns too are great. Frederick is a really cute, quaint neighborhood. We planned to go out there, actually, but that day the protestors for the G8 happened to be in town. But both are definitely worth the nice drive :)
