Day Two of the Gala Features a Big BIG Bus . . .


This was the first thing I saw when I came around the corner this afternoon.  Might not mean much to you, but those of us on the stamp show circuit know that this means the Sweet Stamps caravan is in town . . .

Sure enough, I found Stacey Richardson inside doing demos, and customers shopping the Sweet Stamps trunk show.


And in our prep area, Stacey’s husband Jeff and my good friend Ken were wrapping packages and reloading for Stampaway this weekend.  Ken has helped me with setup and teardown often over the years – he is part of the All-Time Record Teardown Team (an hour and thirteen minutes in York, PA a couple of years ago).

I was running late – missed Mitra Friant and Melinda Doster and the Impression Obsession demos completely.  I had it in my mind that they would be around later in the afternoon.  Guess I should check the schedule – I have typed it enough . . .

Meanwhile, Tweety Jill was hard at work in the classroom with a full house of Vintage Tag enthusiasts.  I couldn’t help but notice that someone must have misbehaved – Mom put Lindsay in the corner by herself . . .

  1. Oooh I knew that bus as soon as I saw it. Rock star Stacey. So the mini Flash named Chase passed me in Novi, guess I have to wait until winter to see him again. Safe trip to all, wish I could convince hubby to do a road trip but golf won out. I am still unpacking from Novi, so I got the better deal.
