HEY, WERE YOU AT FARM CHICKS???WASN'T IT FAB?
As you entered you were first greeted by this darling old Carnation milk truck...charming and needs to go on a story quilt for sure! Remember when milk, eggs, ice cream and cheese were delivered to your door? How nice would that be now?
Below is the man-cave where men yawned or slept or sat by the "stuff" women took over. It was pretty funny and I only took a photo of a protion of it.
A clever cake made of parts! Isn't this wonderful? There were so many good ideas for your house and so many cute things.
OH LALA! Here a French lady takes a break in the middle of wild sales and thrilled customers. There is so much GOOD stuff there! Do you think that her entire lunch was pickles? A woman after my own heart.
Sometimes the outfits were better than the antiques! I couldn't catch this lady to take a proper photo!
Below is the "GRAND POOBAH" (Selena) signing "Fram Chicks" cook book-I recommend it. I couldn't get close to her as you can see.
This lady from Seattle is eating a carmelita bar and she says "thumbs up" if her thumbs were free that is!
The ladies below were selling carmelita bars and brownies. By everyone's comments they were outstanding! I brought home the carmelita bars for a surprise for Mark-we'll see what he says after dinner. :0)
These red and white polka dot clothes were hanging above the dessert ladies
OK, sometimes it is just fun to look around and see who would be fun to hang out with! I loved this darling lady's hat and outfit!
I adore that cottage green color...beautiful!
Lots of shabby chic there! Crystals, jewelry,feathers,white white white....
I took the photo below because there was a tree in the middle and little birds nests with moss on them and I thought this was pretty creative- click on this photo and look at the face of the woman hiding in the midst of all of this....it made me laugh. If you want to see details and you should you can click and see the amazing things for sale. If I can find time tomorrow, I plan to go back and go to Art Fest with my camera in tow. It is my little Grandson's second birthday and so Mark and I are going over and giving him a new baseball mitt, a little tackle box for fishing (he has been fishing since he was one) and some pails to make sand castles with his cousins this summer. My daughter is making my favorite breakfast dish-John Wayne casserole....yum yum!
I am a sucker for anything with cherries and this little linen hand towel called out to me. I had a wild idea that I think I am going to do. Next year for Farm Chicks sale, I think I might offer a retreat to make a story quilt of old linens, "stuff", buttons and all kinds of treasures. I am thinking of having people fly in to Spokane, stay close to my house, go to the sale and then go to the art center and work on some fun things with funky techniques and treasures you find. Does this sound like something you would like to do? It could be an awesome girlfriend bonding time. Let me know what you think. Hoochy blocks and flower blocks or story quilts?
I adore anything made of yoyo's and this chair looked comfy and the pillow was really cute- but I wanted it in reds, cheddars and blacks-I wanna make one but time is my enemy this summer. :0)
Twirly Girl skirts...this was a rack filled with darling little girls skirts that they would be welcome to twirl in- so cute and in all sizes too!
Do you like what you see? Me too! So many good things.
i THOUGHT THIS WAS THE CUTEST IDEA FOR PLANTS! Many farm tools were turned into planters and holders....very fun and oh so creative!
Stay tuned tomorrow for more photos of the fun and see what I came home with!
