Call me biased, I am a fan of Barn House. Joe and Jermonne are creative talents who have a bright future ahead...Their booth at Farm Chicks did not disappoint. The booth itself felt like a small boutique filled with crazy fun vintage finds, from coffee sack pillows, displayed in a gigantic galvanized steel tub to shell topped bottles, topiaries, cabinets, and lanterns. The party the Barn House boys threw for 150 of their closest friends/customers wasn't too bad either!
I have always wanted an old laundry tub like this to use as a cooler for a summer outdoor party - too bad I was limited to a carry-on and one huge suitcase.
All in all the Farm Chicks offered something for everyone. While not all the booths were what I would call "my style", I could certainly appreciate that the dealers were bringing their best. Often that is not the case when out "hunting" local sales. Most likely the best part of going to a show like the Farm Chicks or any other larger national show is to be in the company of creative, like-minded people (mostly women). In our world of instant gratification, mass-produced, consumerism it is refreshing to see there are more creative alternatives to feathering our nests.
I left truly inspired...more to come.
