I love fabric.  It’s patchwork here, calico there and the color just makes us happy.  Our wheels were spinning when we discovered a barren tree at the fairgrounds.  So, we wrapped it up with the most colorful fabric we could find and placed it at the entrance to The Farm Chicks Fair:

We loved walking around The Farm Chicks Fair and hearing women say things like, "I'll meet you at the tree in 2 hours!"and seeing the tree in posts on lots of blogs.

Special thanks to Sweet Addie Vintage for the top image and to Kim at Camp Whimsy for reminding us to post about the tree.


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.
