I'm back from my wonderful trip to Washington and The Farm Chicks Antique Show. It was so much fun, and way to short a trip! We arrived Fri. evening to cold and rainy weather. Such a bummer, since it was warm and sunny here in Sacramento County. The awful weather did nothing to deter the masses from flooding the Farm Chicks show! I knew it was going to be big, But I had no idea the turnout would be that huge! Seriously, there must have been at least 500 junk lovers lined up in the rain to get into the event Sat. morning! The anticipation was almost too much to handle! The first day was so jam packed with people, it was nearly impossible to see any of the wonderful items put out by vendors! The second day was much more calm, and you could actually see the gorgeous booths, and the spectacular displays and vignettes. Every booth was a sight to see! The vendors did not disappoint and went above and beyond to make their booths inviting, and hard to resist! The Farm Chicks booth was so fun! They had vintage enamel ware from India, handmade jewelry, tee-shirts, hats, posters and other goodies. They sold out of the enamel ware almost immediately! These ladies were going crazy over it! It was a feeding frenzy!
I had a blast! Next year's show will be bigger and better! I know I can't wait for it! Enjoy the pics. of the show!Above is the Flutterby booth, a gorgeous store selling antiques, bath & beauty, and gifts. They teamed up with Garden Girl, custom potting and florals. The both was magical! Both sell in Washington you can reach them here: Flutterby (509) 453-6116, & Garden Girl (509) 452-2612
