As I mentioned in my previous two posts, it was an amazing show. The energy was so wonderful. Everyone so happy to be there. Such a party atmosphere. Something I had never experienced at any other show (with the exception of last year's FC show). The clapping and hollering at the beginning and then at the end of the show was so sweet. Made me feel like I was part of something really special.
One of my most favorite purchases has to be the Farm Chicks Cookbook. I even got Teri and Serena to sign it. What a great keepsake. The stories are so sweet and the recipes and photos look amazing. I can't wait to try some of them. If you don't have this one yet, what are you waiting for? Go out and get one right now. You can order one on Amazon.com right here.
On the way home we made a little stop in the town of The Dalles and found a charming little antique shop called "Rerun." There I found these cuties. A great vintage display rack, pair of lovely chintz drapery panels, some vintage style sun glasses, a cute rhinestone bracelet and a silver buckle. Speaking of silver buckles, as I mentioned before, I sold a few of my blingy buckles at the show. This was something I never showed on my blog before, but had mentioned that I had a few "surprises" that I made for the show. Here's a picture so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. I loved how these turned out. The second one from the top is the one I made for myself. Joy made some of these too and we both decided that we didn't care if we sold them as they are so pretty to have and look at. I am excited to make more and am now on the look out for some pretty jewels to replenish my supply.
Something else I made for the show were these cute wallpaper clip boards.
I had so much fun making them. That same day I also embellished five vintage jewelry boxes with the left over wallpaper scraps.I had been collecting these boxes for awhile with every intention of making them prettier. I had a little something different in mind, but I'm loving how they turned out. I didn't sell any of them at Farm Chicks, so if you are interested in them, I will be bringing them along with me to the Barn House Flea Market on July 18th.
Well, that's it for now. Today Joy, Isabel and I are road tripping it up to Puyallup to attend the "Funky Junk Sisters." It will be fun to be a shopper and we're looking forward to chatting up some of the people we weren't able to at Farm Chicks. I'll tell you all about it on my next post.
