Serena bounced through the early years of her life in a hippie gypsy wagon, hand-built by her father, wandering the back roads of the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Her parent's frugal, yet creative style inspired Serena greatly. In 2002, as a mom of four young boys, Serena dreamed of taking her inspiration and creating a fun and happy little antiques sale. That October, 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. Today the show fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds, features nearly 300 curated spaces, and Serena proudly describes it as "The happiest antiques show on earth". Serena's Farm Chick Style can be found periodically in the pages of Country Living Magazine, as well as her books: "The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen" and "The Farm Chicks Christmas".
