Pottery Show and Sale in progress

The Show and Sale at the studio runs from Thursday to Sunday.  The Weekend Special (where seconds, discontinued pieces, “experimental” pieces, or stuff that people just want to get rid of, etc.) always draws in a big crowd because of the terrific deals.  There’s a special group of HARDCORE shoppers who always wait in line well before the studio door opens at 10AM armed with their own bags and boxes (and sometimes lawn chairs) ready to get the bargains.   These are the same kind of folks who would wait in line at 2AM in front of Best Buy on the Friday after Thanksgiving. 

Anyway, this is what I saw this morning as I walked towards the studio at 9:30 (note that the windchill temperature was probably down in the single digits).

Hmmm, that’s weird … where’s the line of people waiting with their boxes and laundry baskets?  What’s that little red cooler doing on the ground?  Wait, there’s a note on it …

“HERE AT 9:15 – Staying warm in car (2 people)”

They have the right idea … numb frozen fingers and pottery do not mix well.   When I first read the note, I thought it said, “Staying warm in can“.   These people crack me up.
