When you put a lot of effort into throwing a great party, don’t miss out on adding the final touch: Signs to mark the way. For farm-themed signage, hang signs from pitchfork tines. All you’ll need is some paper, a printer, double-stick tape or a glue stick, and ribbons to hang. Start with a colorful paper you love. Large scrapbook sheets work perfectly.

Next, print the wording for your sign on a standard sheet of paper, and cut out the message you’ll be using, in a shape of your choice.

Adhere cut out message to the pretty paper with double-stick tape or a glue stick.

At this point, you can affix the sign to a building, or sign post, or you can attach it to something like a pitchfork (as seen above). To hang from pitchfork tines, using a hole punch, punch out holes and affix with pretty ribbon. Lean pitchfork against a building or car, or dig a small hole to place handle into. Stabilize with packed dirt.

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.
