The Farm Chicks Show 2012 & An Early Admission Surprise!

Hi everyone!

Today I want to tell you some exciting news about The Farm Chicks Show, my antiques show that is held once a year in my hometown of Spokane, Washington - The first weekend of June. This year those dates are June 2nd & 3rd.

DSC_8525acrp

The show is host to over 200 vendors and has been named one of the best in the country by Country Living Magazine. Here's Jourdan, a Country Living editor, signing free copies of the magazine for show-goers:

DSC_8727a

I always brag that the vendors are the best. Because they are. This is Lisa. She's been a vendor at the show since 2003!

DSC_8702a

And one of the things I love the most, is the girlfriends and families that make it an annual event, meeting here from all corners of the globe. That's magical to me.

This year, the early admission tickets went like hotcakes, selling out in less than 24 hours. (Don't worry, unlimited general admission tickets are always available!)

But I have some sweet surprises up my sleeve.
