So much to post about the show (there are plenty of other blogs talking about it too).
The bottom line...
1. good junk
2. reasonable prices
3. totally inspiring
would I spend the money to go back? you bet!
Eloise (on the right) was so nice to give us tips on some good booths to start with. Thanks Eloise!
We saw LOTS of cowboy boots with skirts and dresses, fun aprons and fabulous jewelry. We also saw all the Farm Chick celebrities that were in the house to sign books/magazines during the event. Jenny Doh with her new book, Signature Styles. The fabulous Heather Bullard and Ki Nassauer with their magazine Flea Market Style.
Once inside the building we were free to roam the 4 halls. This picture is of the main entrance hall.
My purchase at the Silver Suitcase (as if I hadn't bought enough from them the day before!)
|yes, that's my thumb in the picture...did they move the camera on the new iPhone 4? I never had this giant thumb with my iPhone 3.|
Piles and piles of vintage table cloths
Cowboy boots anyone?
Love this signage...Ormolulu
Seabold Vintage Market was the most darling booth. The red cross theme carried throughout.
|oh, my gosh, there's my thumb again!|
And just across the way were these lovely old dressers. This one was sold.
Loved this idea of the faux wedding cake.
Wouldn't this make a great center piece for a bridal shower?
Look what they did with this old car...
Here is the fabulous Sande Krieger in the back of the car!
I bought one of these...a big letter C.
This was quite a haul!
We saw our friends Lisa and Michelle from Scrappin Girlfriends in Twin Falls, Idaho
as well as our crazy but super fun friend, Lori Wilson-Bunda from The Scrap Yard in Calgary
Farm Chicks even had a Man-Cave with 3 big screen TVs and comfortable seating for about 20 or so people. It was great if you needed a break or just to meet up with someone. I personally watched a little Forrest Gump while I was waiting in there.
Thought I would leave you with this great old car that was parked next to us in the parking lot. We all wanted out picture taken in it!
blog also has some great Farm Chicks pictures (probably NOT taken with their iPhone because there is no thumb in any of the pictures).
