Finally, the day we have waited for has arrived! I was so excited to be exposing my cousins from California to the Farm Chick experience, and not wanting to scare them with the intensity of the Saturday opening day, we opted to go on the more relaxed, and much less crowded Sunday show. Granted, a lot of great stuff had already been snatched up the day before, but we were none the wiser, since we had no idea what we might have missed out on. Win/Win in my opinion.
I will have to wait to show you my treasures that I purchased until tomorrow when I return home and place them onto the repurposed dresser I painted while in Walla Walla, but I did win the award for the first and quickest purchase of the day. One can never wait too long while at Farm Chicks to make that first incredible purchase.
Cori and I both noticed that some of the major vendors from previous years were not present this year, but the show did not disappoint. There was an abundance of all thing vintage, from furniture and jewelry, along with industrial metals and lighting. We even saw a few things which we are chomping at the bit to get our teeth into and try for ourselves.
My cousins were impressed and overwhelmed as is usually the case with a first time Farm Chick experience, but it didn't take long for them to make their first purchase as well. We spent well over 5 hours walking through four large halls at the Spokane Fairgrounds, and by the end of that time our feet were telling us it was time to call it a day.
Once back at the hotel, it was fun sharing all of our purchases with each other and the fun and interesting things we saw while walking around. We're already making plans for another Farm Chicks get together.
