My brain is tired and my feet and back are very tired, so I will do a quick post tonight. The Block Street party went well. It was SUCH a fun day. If you like to "people watch" and I love to people watch - well, this is the place to do it. College town, hippies with dreads, socialite college girls in heels and pearls, punk looking kids, goth - you name it and I saw it. I saw orange, bright green, yellow, pink and blue HAIR today.
I saw this girl and a few others that made my jaw gape. "Hmmm, I think I will wear my fifty pound KISS boots today, yes, I think I will....."
I figure that I can set up, people watch all day long, make some money to boot and not spend any walking up and down the street hitting all the vendors myself. It's a win-win situation.
Also, there was a crochet booth. I don't mean they had cute little crocheted hats and afghans. The booth was literally crocheted.
The top of the tent, the sides of the tent, the floors.....
A sectional(!), table, pillows, rugs.....
They dressed the part. The man in the half shirt (oye vey!) changed into one hideous get up after another all day long. He walked up and down the street posing with people. It was a show stopper, that's for sure.
Everyone talked about how much they had crocheted and how long it must take them. But when is potted all those old potholders, I knew that they were crocheting a lot of it, but probably out at the thrifts scavenging for anything crocheted.
Crocheted table, seating and food anyone?
I'll be back tomorrow with a rundown of the set up, the show, a pop in appearance by Lara complete with the twins and a big sonic Limeade for me, and some more photos. Until then, I leave you with one of my booth partners.
Does it not look like she is grinning ear to ear?
