Sidewalk Chalk and Other Sale Stories
Last weekend’s sale was awesome once again. We had tons of people come out and the weather ended up being fantastic, despite numerous weather forecasts predicting the opposite. Pam and I chilled for most of the weekend enjoying the sun, and met some peeps from around the neighbourhood.
Although the sale was awesome, the day started out kinda wierd when some random kid came up to me and started throwing a temper tantrum because he wanted my sidewalk chalk.
Under ordinary circumstances, I would have no problem giving shite to kids. However, we needed the chalk to advertise the sale… so I said we couldn’t give it to him. He looked straight into my eyes and started SCREAMING. So fine. I offered to give him ONE piece of chalk. I asked him to take his favourite colour. He said he had two favourite colours. I said… ‘seriously. you can have one’. he looked straight into my eyes and started SCREAMING. Then his mom came up to him and actually physically PULLED him away. He broke free and ran up to me and grabbed the whole bucket of chalk and started REEFING it out of my hands. His mom literally had to peel each one of his fingers off of me and pull him down the street as he screamed at the top of his lungs. Totally f-ed up. See below for the progression of emotions I went through during this episode:
Anyhoo, other than that, Pam got some Silly Bandz, which are apparently some big trend in the states right now. Although they are very kid-centric, I must admit that they are kind of addictive, and we ended up selling a lot of them:
Some friends dropped by to say what’s up, including our very gorgeous, very pregnant pal A-Balls.
Yey sale! Stay tuned for our next sale – we’ll be at The Chosen Ones. Come on by!
