Well, the yearly trip to the Farm Chicks vintage market last weekend was a blast!
This was my third year. It did not disappoint.
First of all, I think I look forward to going to Chaps restaurant just as much as the FC show…
I mentioned it in years past, also. They have some serious food. Sweet or savory, whatever you crave. They serve their ice water in mason jars. The place is gorgeous. You simply must go.
We went each morning we were there.
Here are some shots of a few booths I really liked at the show…
I didn’t get a shot of her goods, I was too busy buying them, but she specializes in vintage/industrial pieces and I love her space every year. It is highly competitive because she’s the first booth inside the building (you can see it in this post; in the first two pictures of merchandise). Oodles of lockers, industrial metal bins, industrial stools and chairs, school pieces, wood tool boxes, etc.
I really liked these tie-dyed vintage slips by Lipstick Gypsy. They were all in perfect condition and the colors were lovely. She was really sweet and friendly and sells online.
This tower of locker baskets cheaper than all the others at the show had me at hello. They were the exact kind I wanted, too!
Some random goods…
Don’t ask me how that glass box is a “sanitary sterilizer”.
Skirts made from vintage aprons… really sweet.
Bunting and school house trash cans. Where else?
This was a beauty everyone was talking about. It was priced between $400-$500. It sold. That is actually a good price. For such a rare and trendy piece, I expected it to be near $1000. Either way, it wouldn’t fit in my tiny house and it was certainly not fit it’s pinky toe into my budget.
Day two. Second trip to Chaps.
Many ladies drive sweet old rigs to the show. The mileage has to hurt, but how fun is that truck!!
We finally remembered to take a picture. The day before some of us were duded up in our cowgirl boots and dresses, but we forgot to take a picture to show you. =)
Well that is about it.
next year… I get a post together about my goodies. =)
