Ah, fall weather is upon us, I can do this. Went to the market on Friday, place was loaded with dealers early most tables were full by 7 am. At least in this weather you don't have to find a spot where you can set up with a little shade either from the trees on the back row or parking where you can sit partially inside. Actually Friday I was looking to set up in the sun. Was 42* when I got there. Anyway filled 3- 4 x 8' tables with whatever was in the truck, good, bad ansd assorted stuff. Didn't walk much in the morning it was a sell day, due to low jingle in me pockets.
Had a pretty good day didn't have to give much away to the el-cheapo's just chased them. Even used a friend of minds line, asked them which way the were going and then said well then keep on going. They get the message. :-). Came home did some photo taking etc, wrote up some descriptions and added a few goodies.
This morning (Saturday) Jan went to help a friend with a sale at a block sale. I hit a few yard sales bought some nonsense. Don't know why I do this, probably the price was right. Gets me everytime. Now I have to finish adding some miscellanous bric-a-brack to the van for the market in the morning.
Still gotta get stuff together for my auction next week. Hey, all this stuff keeps me off the street corners and out of the bars.
