Saturday our trip to Whidbey Island, Part 1 Greenbank Farms Antique Show

Our day began with me picking up Mishelle, heading to the Mukilteo Ferry, riding that to
Whidbey Island and then driving to find Greenbank Farms, which really is easy.
Big old farm that has been turned into many things and hosts events, you can even have
a wedding here!
They have a great little cafe to eat in, make good pies!
The have a wine tasting and selling room, cheese and gift shop, art galleries
and I guess are known for their Loganberry Festival in July.
Day was grey, very windy and cold wind too but did not rain on us while on the Island.
Like that would have stopped us shoppers!!LOL
(Click on any photo to enlarge, be sure and scroll down my posts as I am doing this inparts)

Cheese /Gift Shop and galleries row.

The cute roosters they had in the cheese shop on the drink cooler.

Thought their door stop idea was cute.
Piece of wood cut, drilled and painted like a piece of cheese.

And of course we saw and looke at dinnerware everywhere we went.

This above was a fun idea. Old glass vases and pieces from thrift
stores , flower shops etc. glued together for a bird bath or feeder.
We can all do this! Selling it for $75.

Inside the Antique show in the big barn.
All the vendors wares.
There were good things to be found if you know what you were looking for, we thought
it a bit spendy for somethings.
But then we are mighty yaya girl warrior bargain decorator hunters!!
So we like a good deal, LOL!
Still always fun to look though and see things.

I liked this painted green inside old kitchen cupboard.

A huge plaster or? bust on a table. If you had a huge house and a place for
it could be amazing but might be scary in the dark in the middle of the night!

This ladies booth, mostly vintage and nice fabrics.
I loved this tone on tone toile pillow. Was $50.
I talked to her, says she gets most her stuff in the midwest, Ohio.
Now we know where to go !!
