I’m always looking for fun ways to display our products at the show.  Last year, for one of The Farm Chicks pendant styles, I made paper cakes to display them on:

I took stick pinks and pushed them into the cake sides, and then hung the pendants on the pins.

To make the cakes, I took graduated circular pieces of white craft foam and covered each one with big sheets of craft paper, measured and cut to fit.  I hot-glued the paper on to each circle, and covered the edge seams with rick rack trim.  I then stacked the cake layers together and glue gunned into place, making sure to keep the paper seams all on the same side (the back).  I adhered the cakes to pretty cakestands with strong velcro squares, which were removable after the show.

MEET SERENA!

Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event 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 event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
