It's so nice to see a proliferation of good antique sales popping up around Spokane. For a while we had one or two each year with a few smallers sales here and there to tide us over. Antiquing, like most other activities, is a social activity. A time to gather, shop, talk, shop some more and then come together to talk about what you found. It's not just fun. It's a lifestyle.
This weekend is Pickin' on the Prairie, held at Brenda Buckingham's Past Blessings Farm, on Orchard Prairie, north of Spokane.
Buckingham has 35 vendors bringing vintage finds and the farm will be decorated with plenty of the chippy, shabby and rusted goodies Spokane just can't get enough of.
The sale will be Saturday and Sunday, 10 am - 4 pm.
Be prepared for a $4 admission but children 12 and under are free. For more information go to PastBlessings.blogspot.com
Today's the day for those seeking a little Junk Salvation.
The Funky Junk sisters, Dixie and Linda, have put together a rollicking sale today from 8am to 4pm at the Kootenai Fairgrounds. If it's rusted, ruffled, chipped and charming, you'll find it there.
Can I get an Amen?
