The Farm Chicks - Absolute Perfection!!!


It was our first time at the show, but we can certainly see why people travel from all over the world for The Farm Chicks!!! The show was absolutely incredible, to say the least. Terri and Serena were everything you could imagine them to be...and even more beautiful in person than the lovely pictures in their books/blog/website. We can't imagine how they have managed to pick 139 of the most creative, wonderful and inspiring vendors this side of the Mississippi. It was such an honor to be a part of this show. It was almost TOO MUCH to handle! Thank you Terri and Serena for inviting us!!! :o)











OK..we are completely exhausted from all of the fun we had (like everyone seems to be)...so I will have to share more pix (we have tons) and tell you about our Caravan to/from Spokane with The King and Queen, the Caravan Walkie-Talkie nightmare for Cindy (trucker-talk b/t the boys...poor Cindy), show set-up drama and...THE BARN PEOPLE PARTY (BH, Tarte and Chaps) we hosted for 150+ of our closest friends/family/customers. Yes, we are out of control!!!! And it's why I absolutely must get some hammock time today--we had waaaaaaaaaay too much fun @ The Farm Chicks!!

It was so much fun getting to know you boys better! I came home feeling so happy and lucky that my favorite booths at the show were the vendors from my neck of the woods! Your booth looked so great! I also want to thank you for the fun night at Chaps! Now go put your feet up and relax!

Anne Marie said...

I'm already trying to figure out how to go next year -

how very well put together your space looked! and that's coming from a carpenter's wife....

it's so hard to try to encapsulate the 'barn' feeling with no barn! but you totally did it....awesome.

♥Aubrey said...

Love the buckets!!! Unfortunately i was unable to make it this year. But next year it's a date :)

C Maisy said...

In my little opinion I thought you had the best booth there...and I mean the BEST!!!
I had such fun buying breakables from you so I could try to get them home on an airplane that I only packed carry on for. Sheesh..it appears I have gobs to learn.
Thanks for hosting me at your party. It was quite memorable...and so was the next day :)

It looks amazing...I might just have to run away from home to get to your next show. Take care of those ducks and cows! :) KIM

KatCollects said...

I so wanted to be there, even had my reservation, just wasn't meant to be this year. One of these days they are going to actually get it right with the surgery on my foot and then there will be no stopping me : ) I am in love with the buckets "enjoy the journey" so so sweet. I am glad you had a good weekend!

Wow are you guys amazing with your displays! Isn't it wonderful that today so many talented people out there are displaying vintage items,antiques, repurposed items in a way that is not only pleasing, but meant to be handled and enjoyed! No more boring line-ups....Here's hoping that you both can make it to Matilda's Mouse in San Diego one day!And that likewise we all can head up your way!
Best Regards,

Few, welcome home!!! I bet that was a whirlwin of a weekend for you guys! Your both was AWESOME and I so wish I hah spent more time shopping in just your booth! Although I don't know how I would have gotten half the stuff home on a plane, but it so would have been worth the try and the laughs! Get some rest...see you next year!

One of these days I am going to make it down to your Barn sale and will properly call you the Barn House fellas and will bring you some moonshine to make up for calling you Barn People at Sandpoint.My brain was frozen along with my manners. Much love and hope to meet you one of these days.

Hello Dahlink! It was so great to see you at Cindy's barn. How is your new Olivia doing? She sure is cute (as goats go...)! Thank you so much for the yummy judging invite, last year was so much fun! Sadly, (I Mean SADLY!) we won't be able to come. I have a class scheduled in Chehalis that day and had paid for it quite some time ago. I'm SO sad I won't see you at your 2nd Annual! Much Love and Best Wishes for a wonderful show!
