~The Farm Chicks Adventure~

And what an adventure it was!  I want to thank Serena for asking me to be a part of this amazing show.  I'm still bewildered at the amount of people who came and they were all wanting to buy.  I had the best show I've ever had and lots of my treasures went to new homes.  All the customers were friendly and gave me compliments on my display and it was overall a very pleasant experience, so all my hard work payed off. 

I took a few photos of my booth before everything got snatched up and wanted to share some with you.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

We were packed so tight when we left on Thursday and could barely find room for our luggage.  I'm glad I had enough since we had to restock on Sunday since so much sold the day before.  By the end of Saturday everything in the middle section of my booth was gone.

I enjoyed seeing some familiar faces and meeting lots of new ones.

This whole area had sold by Sunday afternoon and our load going home was much lighter:-)
