Remember my post on the Old School Market last month? What? You haven’t seen it?
Quick….go read it here…I’ll wait…………..
As I went through the show introducing myself and asking permission to photograph the various booths I came across Colleens booth. When I gave her my card she said “I know your blog”. I was so surprised. I have never run into anyone who has read my blog all on their own.
Colleen’s blog is Vintage Home. You are gonna love her blog. Tell her I said hi. Anyway while I was browsing through her things a young woman spotted a ladder in the corner. I was busy buying some damask napkins at this point and hadn’t seen the ladder yet.
Oh crap I thought….I want that. I waited to see what she would do. She was sticking to it and she wondered aloud how much it cost. I was taking up valuable retail space in front of Colleens booth so I had to speak up or move. I asked loudly how much the ladder was. We were given a price and I asked her point blank if she was going to take it. She declined and that cute little chippy, paint spattered, green ladder came home with me.
My son carried it into the house for me when I got home and I said to him “just put it upstairs”. When I got in the house I saw he had leaned it up against our river rock fireplace and it looked good there, the green paint matching perfectly with some of the greenish river rock pieces. For now that is where it will stay. Good eye son.
