Farm Chicks getaway

Eventually I am going to get back to making some art to show on this blog, which was supposed to be about what I am creating, but lately I have been feeling less than arty and more like getting away from the rain, so a trip to Spokane to see the Farm Chicks show was in order. This is a show that is rated by Country Living magazine as one of the top antiques and collectible shows in the country, and people fly to Spokane to go to it. We, on the other hand, made a road trip out of it, testing our our new diesel Jetta, which made the seven hour (each way) trip on about one tank of diesel!
Fortunately it was a gorgeous day, since we all were in line for nearly an hour. Eventually they had to split the line in two, as we were spilling into the road. Everyone seemed in a fine mood, ready to discover the treasures that awaited us.
These were a couple of the well dressed "farm chicks" ready and waiting to get into the show.
And two more of the "best dressed" ladies, who even had their shopping carts all decked out in style. Ruffles are all the rage this season, don't ya know.
I loved this gal who clearly was having more fun than anyone else. She never got tired feet, or grew weary of fighting the crowds to get to the merchandise, like I did.
There are lots more photos to come from this weekend, so I will do a few more postings.


  1. Thanks for sharing your Farm Chicks photos- like the outfits and cowgirl hats.
