Sorry it took so long, but we are finally back. We did great at Luckett’s this year, and after a bit of downtime, we are preparing to move into a new home – our 3rd!! Our space will be in Evolution Home, a vintage, antique, and consignment home furnishings store located at 6239 Shields Ave in Alexandria (on Route 1 south of Old Town Alexandria). Evolution Home is the new home of the former Potomac West Antiques in Del Ray.

Starting to fix up the front entrance.
We selected a rectangular booth near the back of the building because it was open, yet had lots of wall space.
The owners gave us a choice of 4 paint colors, and we picked blue and taupe.
View from the entrance – that’s our blue wall at the back.
A few days later, the check-out counter is being installed.
Dealers are starting to paint and stock their booths.
Here is what we selected for the Grand Opening. Everything looks great against the painted walls.
Ironstone displayed on a dark bookcase, topped by a vintage ibex.
Our Americana and British selections.
Birds atop an art deco coffee table, and a vintage tortoise shell inspired vinyl loveseat that everyone falls in love with.
We are very excited to be part of the Evolution Home start-up. Please join us at the Grand Opening this Saturday, August 10, from 10 am – 6 pm. Thanks for keeping up with us – we hope to be posting more often from now on!
