Last Friday, my mom and I decided to do some shopping (or in my case mostly a scoping and a hoping)! We packed up the babes and some snacks and hit the road. We headed from Frederick towards Virginia and hit up Stylish Patina, On A Whim, and The Old Lucketts Store. All three stores have a variety of vendors who sell furniture, salvage, and vintage/antique home goods and reproductions. I love visiting these inspiring stores and seeing all the amazing refinishing and repurposing projects as well as the variety of special collectibles! These stores really house some amazing talent! Stylish Patina and On A Whim also sell Annie Sloan Chalk Paint if you are looking to complete a project on your own.
First up, Stylish Patina! Stylish Patina is a cute little barn tucked back down a little gravel road in Frederick, MD. They are usually open the third weekend of the month from 10-5PM. I love that they are a one story building and have enough space to maneuver an umbrella stroller. Stroller friendly establishments are always a plus because that means I can corral the 2 year old in a stroller while I carry the baby. Besides that I LOVE, love, love the variety they have. All of their “booths” have their own feel, colors, and unique styles. I love the fact that they are not afraid of color either! As I said earlier I didn’t make any purchases on this trip….:( no extra funds in the budget right now, but I was more than happy to accompany my mom as she made some purchases.
|My mom purchased some of these ironstone plates for a steal of a deal, $3.00 each!|
|I was so tempted to buy this yellow apron! It would look fabulous hanging in my kitchen.|
|My mom also purchased some silver plated dessert forks. She’s been collecting mismatched ones recently! I can’t remember exactly how much they were, but I know they were a great deal! I think between $1 and $2 a piece!|
|Isn’t the wood and metal crate with the blue vintage tins so cute?|
|Bright, cheery, and sweet! Perfect!|

You aren’t going to drive past this barn without taking a second look! That pink silo is begging you to come and check the place out!
On A Whim is located in Leesburg, VA. They are open 7 days a week, Monday+ Tuesday-11:00 to 4:00PM, Wednesday- 10:00 to 4:00PM, and Thursday through Sunday 10:00 to 5:00PM. They have one main barn and two small side buildings to explore. While you might be able to use an umbrella stroller on the first floor you definitely will not be able to get it upstairs so I would recommend if you are bringing children that you plan on carrying them or having them walk. Do remember though that there are many breakables so you will have to be monitoring little hands!! Mine likes to touch and flip over the price tags like she sees mommy and grammy doing….yikes!
On A Whim is also a chalk paint dealer. They have a wonderful display in the upstairs level of their barn!
Last, but certainly not least, The Old Lucketts Store!
