While traveling this past 12 weeks, we hopped over to Springfield OH for the big Extravaganza market in September. The weather was amazing compared to our first visit and a whole lot cooler by comparison.
This is quite a production and we were thrilled to be invited to participate in the Vintage Marketplace area where they gather all of the shabbies and vintage type booths together. Lots of cool stuff to be discovered and neat people to meet.
This is a three day show and we come in an entire day earlier to do set up. Its a lot of work for three days. On day one when we were headed back into our hotel, we observed a fairly large group of women pushing 2 large baggage carts. What drew our attention was the items on the carts. Cart one contained lots of baggage, which raised the question of how many were checking in and cart two took the cake. From top to bottom, it was chocked full of food and beverages, from chips to nuts and all sorts of adult beverages. I looked at the happy bunch and asked where the party was. I was then informed that 8 of these lovelies had come from several different states for the entire 3 day market experience.
Every year, they all decend on Ohio and have a huge party doing the market. So the following morning, very early as we were getting ready to go and open up for the day, I noticed these ladies starting their breakfast and all had these green shirts on. Finally one passed me and I started smiling.
Here's the coolest Tshirt I have seen in a long time.
But the clincher was the back . . .
Sunday was special as they finally made their way to our booth and we had the privilege of snapping their group photo, of course in their shirts.
I have said it before and I will say it again, we get to meet some of the neatest folks on the road in this industry. I thought this group was pretty cool!
