I missed a few shots of rolling carts, mostly immitations of the French ones, but I got a few others and will keep getting samples to show you.
It was cool and dreary today all day, not basket buying weather, so I marked a bunch of discontinued and samples down, and did fine. A pair of girls came by late morning with cooler packs on their backs full of free Red Bull; I admit, I have never even tried a Red Bull, but I chose the Sugar Free, which has 10 calories. Here are the girls with their packs on their backs, like the French "hottes" or gathering baskets: A moment after I had opened the Red Bull, the Ice cream Dude went for a quick break, and while I tended a sale for him, a swarm of ladies were in my sale baskets and knocked over the Red Bull, all over my awning stripe tablecloth...this is a violation on my part, I never leave open beverages on the front tables for this reason! Time for a cleaning!
On the way home I went to see a friend, who had a French "hotte" at her sale; this one is not terribly new, but has a great look; it's about 2ft tall and is $65. I have someone who wanted these a few months ago so I will email him; if he does not want it I will have this piece at the Olivenhain Grove sale end of this month:
In other news, a celeb came by and she is on the board of a well-known local environmental group. I told her I would donate to her for the big annual event, and she gave me notice today that she will take me up on it. Love her; she is so good. Also saw Ann the teacher from Crossroads School today, and did a recap on the school lecture a few weeks ago.
I got home to take care of the pups and make dinner for everyone; steaks and fresh garlic with mushrooms; Biscuit is now The Flying Biscuit as she went over the sill and out a window yesterday, with Honey watching in amazement; I think she thought it was a door; she went down through 5 ft of bushes, which broke her fall, and was 20 yards away by the time I got outside to get her; crazy puppy!! They bounce I guess, at this age, she was fine.
Enjoy the rest of the day....
