I met my new friends Joe and Jermonne while working with Joy at one of her shows several months ago. To meet them is to adore them, AND I'm finally going to one of their events!! It will be sooo much fun, because so many other friends will be there (some as vendors like Joy, and Cindy and Diane who still doesn't have a blog but will soon), so I'll get to see them all. Instead of a show (well it still will be) this will be a Flea Market too! You KNOW how I've been trying to get to a flea market lately... with no luck.
If you can, you really should go too, because it will be fun, great buys to be had, and you get to hang out in a beautiful place in the country, meet great people and have a blast!! Their place is near Orchards and Hockinson, Washington, just past Vancouver (about 30 minutes from Portland), and I'll post more including driving instructions soon. DH is coming, and he'll be judging a chili cook-off (I know, I was shocked too, but um, I may have just told him it was going to be a chili cook off and hadn't yet mentioned the "flea market"/shopping aspect). C'mon seriously now, he HAD to know! Well no matter, he does now, and is excited too. I'll be helping to judge a bake-off too! Good thing the big diet doesn't start until next week!
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!” -Jack Kerouac
