Three Speckled Hens

Three Speckled Hens

Hi everyone,

This is Bonnie and I want to tell you all about Three Speckled Hens in Paso Robles, Calif. Amy was not able to go so my friend Barbie and I went up last week. The show was Sat and Sunday. We went opening day at 10. Big mistake, we should have gone for the early birds. Big sales are happening between 8-10 or early openings at all these markets. We missed seeing a lot of good junk!!!! Note to self…go early next time!!!!

The ladies who put this one on are experts. We heard no complaints, no whining, every vendor was happy and making sales. The attendees were thrilled. If you have never gone, and you should, it is on the Paso Robles fairgrounds. They are set in a western theme which totally suits this market. There is tons of shady seating, tons of restrooms, tons of food vendors, and the dealers know what they are doing! Best junk ever but, also the best displays.

One of my favorite sayings is that we don’t buy much because we’re old (me, not Amy) and our houses are stuffed full of junk. We usually buy one or two small things to remind us of the market or for gifts. This time I wanted to buy everything. The dealers know how busy this place gets and stocked up accordingly.

As busy as they get, I have to commend the vendors on how nice they are. I know I wouldn’t be as pleasant after standing in the heat for several hours for 2 days but, they all answered questions and gave directions to restrooms with smiley faces. I guess if you are going to be a vendor you know what you are in for but, let’s give them a round of applause. I know I couldn’t do it, could you??

It’s a busy busy month, this weekend we will be going to The Vintage Marketplace Ca in Vista. I love this market and we have followed it from Rainbow to Galway Downs to Rainbow and now to Vista. It also is a trek for us, about 1 1/2 hours each way but, it is worth the drive. It’s open Fri and Sat. Are you going???

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Thanks for reading, Bonnie and Amy
