As we noted on social media, the first of this month was Spunky Old Broads Day - and it ushered in Spunky Old Broads Month.
In case you didn’t know, Spunky Old Broads Day was started by Dr. Gayle Carson in 2002. “I started it because I found that once a woman hit 50, she was almost invisible and as a woman who keeps reinventing herself and is very active in business, media, etc, I wanted to acknowledge that is not the truth.” And, in case you are wondering, old age is not a requirement in being an SOB. “Generally for women, it means Spunky, Open, and Brave. I think that says it all.”
That may say it all, but that’s still a lot of territory to cover! And so Dr. Carson expanded the entire month of February into Spunky Old Broads Month, including selecting a Spunky Old Broad of the Year. Past winners have included Robin Roberts, Cloris Leachman, Dolly Parton, and Helen Mirren. Other names that leap to mind are Katharine Hepburn, Frida Kahlo, Michelle Obama, Bette Davis, Lena Horne, Iris Apfel - and The Golden Girls! (Watch for some of them to appear on our social media!

We wanted to celebrate Spunky Old Broads - as well as those who support Spunky, Open, and Brave women - with an event. A Bring-A-Friend event. It’s simple: bring a friend into Farm from February 17 through the 21st and each of you can enter our drawing!
The prize is a $20 mall gift certificate and a gift certificate for an hour of ax throwing at Triple Ax ($20 value) - for each of you!
Bring three friends? You get your name entered three times (each of your friends are entered once). More friends, more chances to win!
As we are celebrating Spunk Old Broads; Spunky, Open, and Brave women; those aspiring to be so; and those who support them, this drawing is open to anyone who brings in a friend.
PS More events coming this month! Including another Trash or Treasure appraisal event on the 29th. Keep an eye on our blog, follow us on social media, & join our newsletter so you don’t miss any news!
