Farm Chicks - Part 2 - My Experience

Saturday morning, I was on my way (with my hubby) to my first Farm Chicks show -yeehaw!
Taking notes from other bloggers who have previously attended Farm Chicks, I was expecting a long ticket line. We arrived at the show at 10:45 a.m. to two very long ticket lines!
The wait wasn't all that bad. Thankfully the sun was shining, and those in line around us were a hoot!

I wholeheartedly intended to take lots of pictures.
Fact is, I was completely overwhelmed when I stepped inside!
I have never experienced anything quite like it. People where everywhere, you could hardly move. Vendors were trying to complete sale after sale after sale, sometimes many at a time, it was complete and utter madness, but absolutely amazing and so exciting!!
Here a a few random pics I took on Sunday.




I wish I could have captured the true essence of the show. Everything about it was quite remarkable really. The vendors put so much thought into their spaces and goods. To me, that is what prevailed throughout the entire show. It was fun to bump into fellow blogging friends and finally meet some in person too. It was just an all around great experience. I can't wait to go back!


Side note: Next year we're packing our own lunch. We wasted an hour of precious shopping time waiting in line to buy our lunch. We won't be doing that again!

Great idea to take your own food - that is one area where there is NO control...the food. I've heard that it's a real problem.
Once again...it was so nice to meet you ~ face to face!
