The "patriarch" wanted to downsize his wonderful antiques collection somewhat.
I suggested that he participate in his first antiques show.
I was so busy taking photos of his cool
merchandise, that I missed taking a photo
of the sign in back of this twig table:
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO BACKPACK BUDDIES!
Every penny he made from the sale
will benefit a program which sends food home with
low-income children each weekend.
I am glad to report that his very first antique show
went very well and that Backpack Buddies
will be receiving a generous donation.
He set up right across the aisle from me,
so I was able to visit with he and his daughters when
things got slow.
These two fans had a baby brother,
which I am pleased to report went home with me.
I think we managed to make a small dent in
his downsizing goal...
but I wouldn't be surprised to see him set up again next year.
