Pictures of Spring Show


Washington County Fairgrounds.

April 18 -22, 2017  ~ Weekdays 10am – 8pm; Saturday 10am-5pm

(take advantage of the evening shopping hours if you want to avoid the crowds!)

I stopped back by the show to take photos after I had stocked my booth at Stars.  I wasn’t able to take as many photos at the show as I’d hoped to because I ran out of memory!


I brought plenty of signs!

And my ‘new favorite’ thing to make . . . . .




Lots of different sizes and styles.

~ Vintage sheet music ~ Glitter ~ tea stained lace ~ with all kinds of adornments!

Something for everyone!

Look for my mermaid style crowns in the beach display.

Grubby candles!  I found a stash of grubby candles leftover from when we had our store!  They STILL smell amazing!  In fact, you will probably smell them before you see them.  This is the last of them, so grab them up while you can.  I won’t be producing them anymore.


I brought lots of ‘bits & bobs’ for the crafters and scrap bookers.  Vintage Bingo cards.  Vintage paper doilies.  Little notebooks and journals.

All kinds of fun little stuff in these jars too!

 On to the rest of the show!

Americana and vintage; quilts, Pyrex and silver.

So much more than I was able to take pictures of!!!

Cream and black and white goes with everything!


Mother’s Day is just around the corner!

FREE parking & FREE admission.

More Spring show pictures


These pictures are of some of the ‘blended areas’ of the show, but not the ENTIRE show.  I ran out of disk space on my camera and didn’t get pictures of the antique area and a lot of the spring decor and craft areas.






















The show continues through Saturday, April 23rd.  Open weekdays until 8pm and Saturday until 5pm.  Shop in the evening to avoid the crowds!


Every Husband’s Nightmare Bazaar opens ONE WEEK from today!!! 

November 16-21, 2010

Washington County Fair Complex, Hillsboro, OR

Weekdays 10-8, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-3


Mark your calendars, hire a sitter and plan a fun day of holiday shopping with the girls!    Great gifts, holiday and home decor.  Handcrafted, vintage and collectibles.  Local gourmet foods (with samples to try!)

The ONE and only ‘complaint’ I hear about this show is that ‘at times’ the check out line can be long.  They (show staff) do their best to schedule extra cashiers during the projected busier times; but sometimes it’s just hard to GUESS exactly when everyone will decide ‘it’s time to go to the show!’

That being said, you can pretty much EXPECT to wait in the cashiers line on Saturday and Sunday.  So if you want to get ‘in and out’ quickly, I suggest you come in the late afternoon or evening.  It’s very ‘quiet’ during dinner hour.  You can see everything without having to look over someone’s shoulder or getting elbowed out of the way; and walk right up to the check out counter. 

I’ll be there every day, at various times, restocking and straightening our space; and possible helping with traffic at the check out. 

This is the ONLY show we are doing anymore,and we’re gonna ‘do it up good’! 



Yep, we deliver to Every Husband’s Nightmare Bazaar today; set up tomorrow and the show opens on Tuesday at 10am!


Weekday hours are 10am – 8pm.  Saturday, 10-3

Washington County Fairgrounds;  Hillsboro, OR

FREE admission.  FREE parking.

8,000 square feet and 100 vendors selling unique gifts, gourmet foods, home & garden decor, collectibles, handmades &vintage.


P.S.  I’ll have pictures of the show to post on Tuesday.
