Those are the words that are heard on Saturday mornings when vendors line up to be part of the monthly Kane Co. flea market in St. Charles, Il. One sees all manner of vehicles lined up and ready to go! This vendor, however, caused quite a stir yesterday, when he arrived. He knew exactly how he wanted his booth to look and what it would take to achieve that effect. Not being able to make two trips with his wares, he, quite literally, went over the top! This is Mark, an upcoming and amazing designer who is also a friend. Sadly, I was not able to see the finished result as I had to set up my own space. However, I am sure that he will be posting his own photos on his blog, Room

DO YOU BELIEVE THIS!!!!!!! He confessed that when he ran out of rope, he "borrowed" some gros grain ribbon to tie up this package! It was hilarious! One can only speculate as to the reaction of other drivers who were on the road at that time of the morning! ( Kind of reminds me of "Sanford & Son", only these wares were better.)

And this is Denise's idea of 'line em up" at the end of a hard day of selling at Kane! A group of us sometimes get together and have dinner on that Sat. evening. We "de-stress" and enjoy the lively banter that takes place. (We missed you Mindy!) AND YES, THESE REALLY WERE ALL DENISE'S!

Wish I'd seen he could have just pulled over and sold it all right off the top!

It was great seeing you this weekend and your booth was beautiful.
