There were board games, backyard stick-ball, baseball, football and basketball games. Lukie is pursuing the world record for pogo-stick jumping. Micah started a business, selling bubble gum to kids at school (gum chewing is allowed by some teachers during test taking). Teri donated some sugar cookie dough, left over from some recipe testing, and the boys loved baking it up and decorating it – all on their own.
And thank goodness Lukie and his friends were able to dig up 32 worms at recess, which he safely transported home in his pocket. They now have their very own worm farm.
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.
