Here I am with the two co-queens of the Lakewood 400 Antique Market, Lauri and Lulu of Chippys. And yes, those are vintage permanent wave pins that Lulu is wearing on her lapels and in her hair. It’s workin’, don’t you think? My Saturday signing was so much fun it shoulda been illegal. So big thanks go out to show owners Ed and Barbara Spivia for letting me come out to play. My friend Cathy Blanco of The Book Exchange in Marietta sold what seemed like bazillions of books. I met loads of fellow junkers and dealers and fans, and even scored some seriously cool swag, including a little ironstone milk jug for my kitchen collection, and a sterling sugar bowl. It was my first time at the Lakewood 400 Antique Market since they moved to their “new” location nearly five years ago, but like Gen. Patton–I shall return, and next time I’m bringing the junk posse. The big-ass basket giveaway was a success too, so I think we’ll have to do more of those. And oh yeah–Katie’s birthday party that night was big fun. Stay tuned for pix. And also a giveaway. I missed doing a giveaway for my 200th post. So I owe you guys.
