A Fine Time Was Had By All ............ At The Farm Chicks Antiques Show 2011
I took these photos of my space at the Farm Chicks Antiques Show - an annual event held at the Spokane Fairgrounds in Spokane , Washington - a couple of minutes before the show opened. It was a great show - I met lots of lovely customers from all over the USA, Canada and even some ladies from the UK. I was busy all weekend and sold lots and lots of vintage knick knacks. Some of the booths were absolutely incredible - they looked like elaborate stage sets - you'll find some great photos here. I felt a bit intimidated when I saw some of the fabulous booth displays but once the show started I was too busy to fret and got lots of compliments on my bits and pieces (and in particular on my prices). I went home with a happy heart and a smile on my face.
Luckily I had brought more than I could display, so I was able to replenish on Sunday as my tables were looking pretty bare at the end of the day on Saturday.
My jewelry case in particular was a big hit. One lady from California bought about 10 pieces and then came back on Sunday for more. I'm going to an estate auction this weekend.....it's time to start hoarding for next year's show.
Hello. I live in a small town in the Rockies now. I manage a bronze art foundry. I'm Scottish but Montana has been my home for many years. I still have a wee bit of a wanderlust but I'm happy to be here with my 2 spoilt dogs and a lovely husband who is also hooked on antiques, collectibles and vintage stuff.
