Farm Chicks Antiques Show
June 6, 2010
This weekend my sister, brother-in-law, husband and I took a road trip across the state to Spokane for the Farm Chicks Antiques Show. I first became aware of the Farm Chicks when I came across their book, The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen: Live Well, Laugh Often, Cook Much by Serena Thompson and Teri Edwards. Since reading that the authors were from my state of Washington, I’ve been wanting to attend one of their antiques shows and sales.
I had no idea that the Farm Chicks were such a major phenomenon! This year’s event was held at the Spokane fairgrounds, and they attracted a big crowd.
Inside, there were almost 200 vendor booths packed with vintage and country-themed items. I enjoyed looking at the old, worn things that called to mind my childhood on the farm. Some vendors re-purposed old items and gave them new life.
Although I’m a country girl at heart, I’m not at Farm Chick because I can’t carry off the glitz and glam that these women revel in. I loved people-watching, and took some photos of women who epitomize the Farm Chicks style:
My sister and I had a wonderful time at the show (our husbands took off on their own Spokane adventures). The Farm Chicks have certainly tapped into something — it was fun to be with a community of women share a common interest in all things country.
