Brr! It's freezing! Well, not quite: it's 2.9 degrees. I suppose we'll have a frost tonight.
This'll be short; it's Monday night and I'm tired!
Just a quick update: we caught up with friends and customers at the Wentworth Park Markets yesterday. Most vendors reported sluggish sales; everyone seemed to be bargain hunting and browsing. We still had a lot of fun, as usual. Sinead came down from school; she's getting prettier and prettier. The Irishmen in Antiques Club met at our stall, again. No one could understand a single thing they said. But I digress.
Funny little vignette: a lady came by and asked me about my display of float bowl figurines. (In case any of you don't already know about my Walther obsession, I'll elucidate in a subsequent post.) Anyway, she started by saying, in an absolutely irresistably adorable manner: I know you're not a museum, but I just wanted to ask about these, because I've never seen anything like them before....
What antiques dealer could resist that opening?
Anyway, she gave me a new line: Aleta's Mobile Museum is always open: stop by anytime!
