So much fun was to be had visiting Spokane. My niece came along with me to check out what all the fuss was about. She’d never seen such loony ladies excited about the junk they couldn’t grab fast enough, or the bloomers they wore under their skirts & aprons over jeans…She giggled more often than not the day – but by the end she was starting to understand that recycled treasures were actually cool & started to say the infamous words of “awe – this is so cute”… I then it was me who had to laugh out loud!
We arrived early enough to get into the doors right at ten – however, because of the early entries the first few booths were already displaying sold signs on their items – so we skipped much of the front & headed to the back & work our way forward. So, you are dying to know what I found & brought home, right?
I snatched this gorgeous patina’d urn and plan to plant something in it for the patio!
I immediately fell in love with this “mamma bird” apron and had to bring it home with me as well. Although it’s new, I will definitely use it & love the birdie print on the front.
This scale was my junkin find that I regret not figuring out how to buy. I was out of cash at this point & the vendor didn’t take cards. My niece said to me…where do you intend to hang it & I started to feel a little guilty about my last scale purchase… I just thought it was so so so cute…
While standing in line waiting to pay for the apron, I noticed this darling little birdie in the corner of my eye all happy perched on a swing – yep, grabbed him too!
Adoring this sweet little salt & pepper shakers filled with glitter! Not just any glitter – but its Pure Silver & German Glass.
My favorite find at the Farm Chicks– was this rustic caddy…says its from the 1950’s – its very sweet & I plan to do something fun with it…what, I’m jut not sure yet?
After leaving the Farm Chicks – we met my mother & sister in law in town for lunch and the four of us continued our quest for “Finds”.
We came upon a whole row of fantastic shops & inside those found something I will truly always treasure. Zula Kenyon framed bluebird prints. I adore her work and until this point have never come across one (much less two).
I saw this sweet rusted ‘ol barrel our front of a store front & grabbed this for the coop area. love it! (not the noise it made all the way home in the car though)…
and my niece, well – yep, she caught the bug & did make a purchase….take a peek at what she bought for just $10.
Thanks so much for coming over to peek! A great trip & some great finds! To see where I am linking up to this week!!!!
