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's time to start hoarding for next year's show.

Marian the show sounded not only fun but a great success. When I hear of you being in Spokane, and the fact you live in MT really makes me miss home. I have a huge desire to travel through MT again. My father went last Sept. and walked the old sidewalks of the towns where he lived.Even took photos of the old house we use to live in Belt. It was transforming for him to go back. I was so happy to get your comment this a.m. I've been BAD at blogging. Sometimes I just need to step away too much to tackle away from the computer. I hope you have a great weekend,& find hoards of great treasures at the estate sale?
All my best,

A blogging friend went to the fair and she posted about it here

This fair looks gorgeous, we don't have anything like it in the UK :o(
(probably just as well, thinks my husband!).

Good luck with finding new treasures at the estate sale.

Your vintage space is blooming marvellous. I would have been like a child in a sweety shop. I marvel at what I would have walked away with had i been there.
