The Sandpoint, Idaho Farmers Market was beautiful this weekend – full of autumn beauty and abundance. The market, just about a one hour drive north of our Spokane, Washington area home, it’s always worth a visit because of the wonderful array of locally grown produce and handmade goods being sold. And it’s an all-around fun way to spend a weekend day.

I ran into Jennifer, selling her wonderful soaps.

Did you know that vegetables are fruits that are darker in color are the most nutritious?

What a perfect way to spend an Autumn weekend day.


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
