As you know by now, David and I enjoyed, and I mean enjoyed, our first antique show in Warrenton at Zapp Hall. And might I say, WOW! What a great experience to have under our belts. We enjoyed meeting lots of folks. We even remember some of those folks names (*sigh). We took lots of pictures, but sadly, they are mainly of our immediate surroundings, which would be my space, Debbie and Danny's space, and...um...not much else. OH! And we snapped a few pics of some of the people who came within that area. That will be another post.
Stories. Wanna hear stories about the show? Well, by now, you know it rained some. And you know it was hot some. You also know that the blog party was a fun gathering. But, here are a few stories you haven't heard:
As one shopper perused the goods in my space, she kindly held something up, made eye contact with me, and said something to me...in French. I had to confess that my Spanish was much better than my French, and then we both had a good laugh. She kindly told me in English that she wanted the item she had held up. Yee haw!
Another shopper came into my space, looked me in the face and said "Oh, look! You sweat, too!" I have to admit, I know that I sweat. And I know that others can see that I sweat. But, being told that I sweat threw me a touch. Thankfully, the kind lady and her friends stayed awhile and made all my sweating worth while. Yee haw!
Oh! This is cool. The Blue Tape Man came by one morning before we had reported for duty. He tagged a table with blue tape, on which was written a note "I am interested. Please call me" and he left his number. I called. I quoted. He came and loaded. And then he blue tagged a few more things and loaded them prior to departure. I like the Blue Tape Man. Yee haw!
The last story is about Danny and Debbie. They were so gracious to us newbies at the show. They shared show secrets. They introduced us to some nice folks. Danny and his 2 wheeler kept us entertained on a daily basis.
Now, here's a little secret about them. They share magic. Somehow, I don't know how other than magic, they make things happen in that tent. One minute, the tent has good stuff in it. The next time I look up, the good stuff has splashes of nature's colors all over. Hydrangeas. Bittersweet. Pumpkins. And there Debbie sat visiting with someone, as Cat Daddy walked back and forth with the 2 wheeler. Who did that? I never saw them splashing nature here and there. But, it happened. Magic. No question about it.
I guess that's about it for stories, unless David reminds me of a good one. Wanna see more pics? By clicking here, you can view what photos I took.
