We had the time of our lives at the Farm Chicks Show!!! It is still hard to grasp all the wonderfulness of it! Teri and Serena have created an absolutely magical setting. 129 vendors who can style over-the-top booths and are gracious as all get out. The shoppers were the classiest ever – friendly, supportive and wearing the best vintage jewelry around, and pushing some tricked-out shopping carts.(excited opening day shoppers 4-deep all the way to the street!)
Here’s my hubby Raoul, helping us pack our 15 foot truck. He was a mover in a previous life. Nothing seemed to move an inch between here and Spokane on Thursday.
Loved this welcome sign as we arrived for set up first thing on Friday.
Lisa is looking good in our big girl truck. Kudos to J & R Truck Rental for some quality service too.
Oh - the anticipation on set up day. We couldn’t get in until 9 a.m. Here’s a line of trailers waiting for those open doors. We had until 6 p.m. Nine hours seemed like a ton of time. At 4 p.m. we both uttered something to the colorful side of OMG!
But our booth looked welcoming by the opening on Saturday. It was truly jam-packed. Friends had told us the morning would be hectic, making trips to the truck for restocking a major challenge. They were right. We stayed busy the entire day.
We squeezed in some time to visit all the booths and admire all their displays.
This colorful one is Poor Pitiful Pam.
Our new, lovely friend Cindy of Queen of Tarte, had this incredible wall of wood crates filled with eye-catching objects.
As always, Deb and Bob of Retreat had magnificent arrangements. We especially loved their masterpiece – the piano bar.
And of course, the grandest vignettes were in the Barn House booth.
We are already tossing around ideas for our booth for next year!
