Once again my Mom and I made our annual trip to Farm Chicks. This was our ninth year hitting the show and once again it did not disappoint. The show is full of vintage stuff, but it is much more than that too...it is a time when I see friends and it feels like a party and reunion of sorts each year.
There is always a long line waiting to get in. Once the doors open it moves quickly. This year I stood in line with my Mom and Erica (Pyrex Sister). Each year when you walk in the door Serena (the woman behind Farm Chicks) has a great display to greet shoppers. We always wonder what she will come up with. This year this tree house fit into her camping theme. It was darling.
The show was really crowded when it opened. In some spots it was hard to navigate there were so many people. The booths were full of eye candy as usual. The show is held in the fairgrounds so the ceilings are high and vendors can really go up with their displays.
Very clever display with the chalkboard and the frames drawn on it for emphasis. This was a coin operated horse that this little girl was actually riding.
The linen/tablecloth booth is huge and has piles of tablecloths, quilts etc. Amy always hits it. When I walked by it after opening it was a flurry of women rummaging through the piles.
My Mom and I usually take a lunch break and leave the show. We shop Spokane a bit and eat lunch. When we returned later in the afternoon the crowds had dispersed..the linen booth was much tamer.
