For the last several years, my friend Katelynhas visited The Farm Chicks Fair, documenting it in her own special style. This year she did a great job capturing this year’s ADVENTURE theme.

Fun in line before the fair:

Heartfelt thanks to Katelyn for capturing the fair in such a meaningful way, and to all the shoppers who visit and support the show, year after year. I'm thankful for you.

The Farm Chicks Fair is held the first full weekend in June each year in Spokane, Washington and features more than 75,000 square feet of antiques, vintage, and handcrafted goods. I call it the happiest show on earth.


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.
