The Farm Chicks Antique Fair, part 1

The adventure begins...


On Saturday, I arrived one hour before the gates opened and stood in line with close to 1000 other crazy antique hunters.  Just a few friends getting together.
The Antique Fair is held at the Spokane Fair grounds and filled three entire buildings with vendors.
A friendly little hello as we enter the gates
As I walked into the entryway I was greeted by this vintage milk truck with delightful clouds hanging overhead.  A great photo spot.
Just look at this lovely lace covered chandalier.  Wouldn't that be fun to make?
I was drooling over these beautiful pink, white and cream horse ribbons. When I took one of Teresa McFayden's E Zine classes she did a wonderful altered horse ribbon project.  Pretty, pretty.
Loved this old suitcase filled with vintage sheet music, flowers and lace. Yummy!

The fair was wonderful, although as crowded as Disneyland in August.  The crowds were so dense I could not move at times.  But everyone was sweet and made the best of a difficult circumstance. 

Hope you will visit me again as I shall return and share the delightful treasures I manged to find and bring home with me...stay tuned.
