CHIPPYS DO IT AT LAKEWOOD 400

Nobody does it better...setting up outside at Lakewood 400 Antique Show.  I am not just bragging.  Well I am but we act like we're in our own little world store.  We're also too cheap to pay for a tiny space inside at 2x the price.  Of course we have to dodge 'weather events'. We thought we were SO SMARTIthis month because we bought a tent!  We decorated and displayed until we were delirious.  AND THEN THE $^*% hit the small fan.  We shoot first and ask questions later as a rule.  Apparently the Fire Marshall didn't appreciate our artistic interpretations or sense of style because he blew the lid off our roof.  AND I HAVE AN 'IN' WITH FIREMEN if you recall our blog about Columbus, TX firemen (Chief Walla).  We had to take the cover off of our frame. Bummer.  It started to rain a bit right after that, natch.  We were 'allowed' to put the cover back on since it was raining AND NOT A FIRE HAZARD!  Ya think?Lakewood 5 08 006Lakewood 5 08 003 Lakewood 5 08 005 Lakewood 5 08 004

Any way...we somehow managed.  See this china cabinet...Lauri scored a good buy on this.  She doesn't want it to sell.  I can completely understand.  I didn't bring that 8' mirror for that same reason.  Since we are masochists we will TOTALLY redo the booth tomorrow and Sunday.  Please pray for sunshine :)

Lakewood 5 08 007So I leave you with this cubby of cuties...as if we wouldn't have a Baby somewhere!

We'd also like to say 'hey' to Sandra from Tennessee.  We met her today.  She was on our blog prior to coming to Atlanta!   We were tickled...and so was she.  What a sweetheart!

Happy Treasure Hunting !
