Oh Lord...THAT Was A Long Day! I Am Beat! The First Green Shag Parking Lot Sale Is In The Books. Did Ya Go? If Not, I Got Pics For Ya! Status: Happy
After packing up the leftovers and hitting the Tin Can on the south side for a bite, this glorious sunset bade the Modtomic crew home. Home...nap...shower....Tylenol. Yes, please.
Our spread. Glorious in it's hugeness, don't ya think? This started off as a reservation for two
"spots" which are basically parking spaces. Then I got excited and thought I might be able to fill
three and the "rent" wasn't bad so I popped for a third. Then I got my booth space and
consequently the lot space price dropped by a quarter...meaning I could have yet another space
or a little refund.
Well, Illuminate FINALLY committed to bringing some stuff to sell so I took the extra outside
space. Oh, and funny story about Illuminate and her loot. She picked up these sorta retro tweed
swivel rocker arm chairs at an estate sale some time ago. She had asked me about them
ostensibly because I'm the "expert" and I kinda curled my lip and turned my head in derision.
I told her that they weren't much and that I didn't think she'd be able to do much with them as
they don't seem to be in high demand by anybody. Guess what. Everybody wanted them! One
got snatched right away though the buyer didn't take it with them and then EVERYBODY who
walked through our space stopped and tried them out! They were the sale's big hit!
Of course, after selling the one of the matched set, four or five buyers only wanted to buy the set
complete and the second rocker sat forlorn until almost the end of the day. Then it too found a
happy new home! Lesson: What do I know?! Tomorrow I'll show ya some pics of the rest of the
vendors and let you know how the Mr. did. Right now...I gotta get some much needed rest!
