Woo-Hoo!! Farm Chicks Show

June 2-3 I attended my first Farm Chicks Show at the Spokane, WA Fairgrounds!  Oh  my goodness!  Unbelievable!

My sister-in-law, Patrice and I arrived at 9:00 am and there were already hundreds in line.  So many interesting people to talk to while waiting.....patiently.  Well maybe that patiently!  When the gates opened, the line moved quickly.  And we were in!

We had already mapped out our strategy of going directly to the back first and maybe beating the crowds.  That didn't work.  We stopped at the 2nd booth in the door and immediately found a treasure!
Because there were so many people it was difficult to take pictures of the booths and the merchandise but I did get a few of some of my favorite things.
A horse and wagon, plus a shabby old chair.  I love shabby old chairs!

 Isn't she cute?  And I love the green and white quilt behind her!

Then there's this delightful little cart that I can't believe I didn't buy! 
We had such a good time and found many treasures.  We even went back Sunday just in case we might have missed something and lo and behold we had!
Let's just say it's a good thing we brought the pick-up!
I'll try to show some of our treasures on my next post.

Thanks for stopping by!  xo, Karen
