Once again, the Farm Chicks show came and went, in a blur. The build up, hard work, preparation, packing, driving and the disruption to family life are all worth it. Because in the end, it’s about the sales, but more importantly, it’s about the people we meet.
My roomies this year turned out to be my good friend Joy, her husband, Dave and their son, Sam. I had just been talking to another friend about the fact that I hadn’t gotten to spend much time with Joy lately and now I had her for a whole weekend slumber party!
So, onto the show! It was so busy that other than a few trips to the bathroom, I rarely left my booth so the only pictures I got were of my booth. Here goes.
These pictures were all taken just minutes before the early buying started on Saturday morning. As you can see, I brought a lot. So much, in fact, I think it was hard to see everything. You can just get a glimpse of the most awesome piece I brought, the pink multi drawer cabinet shown in the last two pictures. On Sunday, I rearranged everything. Here’s a picture where you can see the cabinet better.
As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t get out of my booth much, so unfortunately I didn’t get to shop very much. I did however, buy a couple cute items from my booth neighbor, Isabel. I got a little dental display cabinet, which I have been wanting forever, and an adorable apron from her. I also found a couple cute lamp shades and a sweet pj top which I’ll wear as a regular top with jeans. I’ll have to show those another time.
As I also mentioned above, I love selling at Farm Chicks. The people are definitely the best part of doing this show. I love seeing returning customers and meeting new friends. I love getting to hang with my peeps that “get me.” I want to thank each and every customer who bought from me. I couldn’t do this show without you, so I am very thankful for you all.
Wish I took some people pictures. Here’s a cute one Joy took of Sue, me and Patricia on Saturday.
And here I am on Day 2. Picture taken by my road trippin buddy, Kate.
I called this my “sexy lunch lady” outfit. ha ha
Serena has posted links to other Farm Chicks posts and I’m so grateful as I was able to see so much that I didn’t get to see at the show. You can go here to check out some more Farm Chick goodness.
This week I have been filling my mall space with my Farm Chicks leftovers. Wow, that sounds bad, but really, it’s all new (old) good stuff. I have a little break before my next show which is the Barn House Vintage Market, July 30th. The wheels are turning though and I have several projects spinning in my little head. I love those guys and this show. It will be my third year as a vendor and I’m really excited to be a part of the Barn House family. If you are at all able, I would love to see you there! TTFN!
