Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little antiques sale. In 2002, she and some friends held the first sale in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines.
Today the Farm Chicks Show fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features more than 300 vendors spreading over 90,000 square feet of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with antiques, vintage, and handmade goods. Many describe the Farm Chicks Show as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best show in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest show on earth.
People literally fly and drive from far, far away to attend the Farm Chicks Show. It’s got a HUGE following and the vendor displays are always incredible. Thousands of visitors hit every year the Farm Chicks Show, and the city gets completely booked in terms of hotel accommodations.
The Farm Chicks Show is held in Spokane, WA once a year in Spring, and features antiques, vintage, crafted goods, and the most friendly and stylish curators around.
The first day of the show is a very busy day at the show, and tends to be very crowded until the mid-late afternoon. Parents are cautioned that strollers can be extremely difficult to navigate. Baby packs or baby backpacks are highly advised. If you do not like crowds, the organizers recommend visiting the show on the last day, as the show is much less crowded and much easier to navigate. And the best part? Booths are re-stocked with fresh unseen goods, just for late shoppers.
Parking on site is free, and many handicapped spaces are available. There is unlimited general parking available at the fairgrounds, and parking attendants will direct you to the best available parking spaces.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Buy if you love it, and buy when you see it. If you truly love a piece, be willing to give up something else to pay for it, move something else to find a spot for it, or decorate differently to make the color work.
