The Spruce Girls at Farm Chicks

June 5, 2013

Words can’t quite describe the past weekend at Farm Chicks. The Spruce Girls and I (minus Elisa who had a wedding to attend sniff, sniff) made the 7-ish hour trek with a cargo van, an SUV + big trailer, a mini van, 2 handsome husbands and 1 adorable newborn baby (who was perfect…antiquing must be in his blood or something) and we were glad that we came prepared! The booths were absolutely incredible and while the crowds were overwhelming at times, everyone was so friendly and helpful…we even started to be known as “those Canadian girls” by a few of our fave booths! We shopped ’til we dropped and the entire experience was a combination of inspiration, overstimulation and exhaustion…a series of emotions that went on repeat throughout the entire two days. Here’s just a small look inside The Farm Chicks

This is a shot of the cargo van nearing capacity but Monica and I (Lily) still had an hour until closing time Sunday so we just couldn’t stop yet…

This was our final haul at the show, as you can see we snagged a few closing time deals! This was at 4pm and we knew we had a loooong drive ahead of us but even managed to squeeze in one more antiques barn a couple hours into the drive. I know, we were starting to scare ourselves!

Yep, we closed down another one! In hindsight, maybe not the best decision (we only reached the border at 1:30am and I wouldn’t recommend a commercial crossing at that time of night to anyone) but Farm Chicks did not disappoint and we left feeling so motivated and inspired…we can’t wait to tackle the plans/dreams/projects in our future! We’re having a big Ladies Night at the shop on Friday (which is SOLD OUT!) so we’ve got a tonne to do in the meantime. I guess I’ll have to catch up on sleep next week :)

Lily, this is amazing! Oh my gosh, what a way to spend a few days – and I hear you on fitting in one more antique stop along the way! Almost near impossible to drive right on by, right? ;-) Looking forward to following along and seeing these treasures pop up in your posts!

It really was incredible, Sheila! We had a few harried moments trying to pack our last bits into our already very full van but it was worth it :)
