Boy am I going to hear about this post, forever. Too bad, it made me laugh and that was a good thing!
Back from a day of oppressive heat and sweltering humidity, our North Shore Flea was busy and packed. We saw a bunch of great customers we hadn't seen in a year or, so it was old home week as well.
But that heat, it was just awful. If you blinked your eyes, you sweat. Turn your head, sweat some more. It took for ever to pack up and and leave just cuz we were so tired and worn out from the heat
And from laughing.
We had the best time visiting with two of my dearest friends and fellow vendors Kathi and Annie from 3 Wrens. We joked around, sat and sweat together and just made the best of an incredibly tough weather day.
Then to top it all off, we got a great laugh in at the very end.
The question is . . .
How many 3 Wrens does it take to get one itty bitty little 10 X 10 tent back into it carrying case at the end of the day?
The answer is two, these two trying their darndest to get it in
We laughed so hard, Annie looks up and sees the DH snapping pictures and the threats start flying, "You had better not be taking pictured of my backside George", all the while I am snapping away on her other side. My answer would have been throw that thing in the car and hope it makes it home in one piece, who cares about a carrying case! ! !
Such an incredible fun day with them. Wish we had more and we just might get that wish come October as they are coming to the new market in the suburbs. I couldn't be happier.
Annie, thanks for the hours of bagging help in my tent and for sharing Mom as well. You girls are a hoot! We were honored that you drove in from Wisconsin to show with us.
We head to Midland MI this coming week to do their special 45th Anniversary show, complete with all sorts of celebrations. See you all there.
