A great time at the car show

That’s me posing. B did a great job on my banner!

We had a great time at the car show yesterday and I actually made a few sales. I consider it a successful first outing. Bernadette and I went early to set up, then Tim and Lucas met us an hour or so later. They all said my booth looked great, but also had suggestions for next time to make it even more eye-catching. I came away with some good ideas. I talked to a few of the other vendors–Tim bought some records from the guy next to us and my mom bought me a book and a purse. Chaos set up next to us with his ’58 Oldsmobile Ninety-eight and great artwork. Throughout the day he pointed out people wearing t-shirts he designed for various car shows, which was kind of fun.

A little while after the judges awarded the trophies, they were looking for pin-ups to pose with the winning cars. Someone walked by my booth and said, “There’s one!” and asked me to pose with two other girls – I was flattered. So at some point, my picture will be on the 100 Percent Kulture website.

While I spent most of my time at my booth, I did wander around with my mom, aunt and uncle for a few minutes to look at some of the cars. Some of my favorites:

Canary yellow Dodge

I love this shade of blue.

This car was parked right in front of my table for a while until another space opened up.

Overall, I had a great time. I definitely look forward to doing more car shows in the future–especially once I find Matilda and have my own classic car.
