My "Farm Chicks" Adventure

Well...I finally made it home from my "Farm Chicks" Vacation down in Spokane Washington...fun fun fun!
 These vintage shopping carts were all the rage...it was a virtual feeding frenzy of people madly shopping & in a most hurried fashion...putting all their new found treasures into these carts. I have never seen anything like it! I stood in the middle of a sea of humanity...rubbing my eyes from the sensory overload that was taking place. Eye candy for acres around me...I was dumbfounded & struck down by the enormity of this show! 
The group my cousin & I were traveling with called "Come Junk With Us" was allowed to enter early & through the back door...thankfully avoiding the line up that was about two blocks long & growing longer by the minute...the first two photos above were taking before the crush of humanity came piling in.
I wish I could have taken more photos of the vendors but within a few minutes we were shoulder to shoulder with people & I couldn't get a clear shot of anything. 
One of the other perks that our "Come Junk With Us" group received was tickets to attend the gala "Farm Chicks" dinner that was put on by "Chaps". All the vendors & invitees were given a sumptuous feast of the most creative kind...the presentation was amazing & the food divine!
Y U M M Y 
Flowers & tempting delectables...handmade frills & decorations were everywhere...
 Music...Magic...Mood...
 Two gal pals in Martini heaven..."Come Junk with Us" family...
The decor was inspiring...colorful...fun... 


Local law keeping the frivolity at an acceptable level...just kidding...
A good time was had...new friendships were made & memories forged...
Thank-you Timi for putting together such a wonderful excursion!
