Here we are packing for the Christie Antique Show yesterday.. The weather report was 'iffy'. Possible showers in the afternoon.
Wrong again. It started spitting as I was setting up at 7am and by 9.30 there was a tremendous down pour for about an hour, followed by light showers for the rest of the day.
My stock was covered with large sheets of clear plastic.
No pics, as usual, I am much too busy.
Surprisingly, I did fairly well, considering the circumstances.
My favorite customer, at about 2 pm, was a young man negotiating for a woolen trade blanket. Finally he said " how about $95 plus a glass of wine?" Sold!......he shoved the money into my hand, trotted off and came back 5 minutes later with a glass of plonk for me and a beer for himself. That improved my mood quite a bit.
Also surprising was the amount of punters out, dressed for the event....wellies, rain gear, huge umbrellas and enjoying themselves.
So today I have been drying out......lovely weather of course, not too hot and breezy.
It has been as much work as the show.....I think I am getting too old for this kind of lark.
