The Farm Chicks Part 2 ~ 2012

We must admit we never know exactly what we are searching for until we see it. Even with only a vague idea of how we will transform the no longer cherished piece, we are absolutely postive it's the right thing to have-immediately! We can't drive by a yard sale without turning in; we are always on the lookout for treasures in someone's attic. My daughter and I call ourselves "passionate junkers" we are the first (although it is getting harder for us to be first in line) at estate sales, auctions, & road side flea markets. We love transforming our finds into prized belongings. There is still so much beauty out there to be found, so many more cracked, tarnished, slightly worn, but beautifully authentic to discover. This past weekend we were part of the AMAZING Farm Chicks Antique Show, in Spokane, WA. our booth was filled with many treasures from antiques, vintage, to the unexpected....we appreciate it all. Look beyond first appearances for true beauty...words my mother always said to me when I was growing up. We hope that you will have a fun filled summer and junk happily ever after, and find something totally outlandish that you absolutely love! Photos by Mike Lee

Farm Chicks ~ 2012

This past weekend we were blessed to be a part of The Farm Chicks Show. It is truly the most wonderful antique show!!! If you have never experienced the pleasure of The Farm Chicks Show,in Spokane, WA. We hope you will put it on your "to do list", as something not to miss! Serena is very good at creating this amazing show....No details left undone. There were crowds, and we mean crowds of people that attended, and the show runs so smooth. She still makes us all feel so welcome. After we set up The Junebug booth ~ we are pretty much there to stay... hardly anytime away from our booth. All of our guests were so polite, it's pretty amazing to see. We would like to thank everyone that purchased from us. It was really awesome to hear such nice things from people, about our "Mad Hatter Vintage Flea Market" that we love to host each year, at the Five Mile Prairie Grange, in Spokane, WA. This year we brought two trailers filled to the brim with furniture and treasures and so happy to say we left with one empty trailer and one with just a few pieces in it. It was so great to meet other bloggers and facebook friends face to face. To vist with other vendors and customers, we are so full of inspiration and excitement for our next Farm Chicks Show! I thought I'd share with you one of special customers, that touched my heart. She came to our booth on Saturday and as we were visiting about linens and things she loved, she told me she loves to get home in the evening and look at blogs and she loves listening to our music on our blog and visitng the photos. It made me so happy. Then she told me that her sister past away last year with cancer and they were business partners and best friends. means the world to me! See you all so very soon, and please enjoy your summer!!! Glad & Celia Serendipity is Me....Love Cel's new tatoo My husband and Lana Neumann (Owner of Deja neu) being silly! I think they are adorable <
