Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little antique sale. In 2002, she and some friends held the first sale 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 Farm Chicks Show fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features more than 300 vendors spreading over 90,000 square feet of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with antiques, vintage, and handmade goods. Many describe the Farm Chicks Show as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best show in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest show on earth.
