Before heading out for summer fun there is one last Sisters on the Fly event. Not a great distance to travel as it is probably less than 2 miles as the crow fly but a highlight of the year for me. It was one of the first events several years ago that I attended with this crazy group of sisters and I so love to visit with the growing number of women who combine there love of nature, camping (glamping- glamor camping) and crazy fun.
As important as the shopping is at this event....it is planned every year to match with the FARM CHICKS Sale at the Fairgrounds, there are clearly many draws that make this gathering a Not To Be Missed Event.
It takes a while for me to feel like I fit in. I can tell you that I do finally feel like I fit in. It is not so important that everyone is my new best friend but that develop friendships that grow with the abiding love and concern for each other that I see happening at each gathering. It is also fun to see new women reaching out to join in the fun and be part of the welcoming for them.
The setting is fabulous! Along the Spokane River just a 2 mile drive from Downtown Spokane, WA.
Some are looking for a vintage item some are looking for a specialty shabby chic item others a fabulous new ideas for craft item to be completed at a later date. Others are hard core shoppers who turn their finds into new creations to be resold at future events or shops.
I fit into none of those categories.
I have maintained for most of my life that I HATE shopping.......
But here shopping is a whole new experience!
Do I love it because it is vintage? YES
Do I love it because I am vintage? YES
Do I love it because the presentation is fabulous? YES
I now believe I have been shopping in the wrong places all of my life.........I was born to shop.............................................................HERE!
One of the highlights at Sisters On the Fly gatherings are the trailers and of course the glamping.
Wherever Sisters on the fly gather food does too. After serious shopping at garage sales and Farm Chicks, there were gatherings dedicated to good food. We could have fed the whole HEN HOUSE!!
