Market/Chapter 1 ~ Set-up Day & Sample Spree

May 17th, 2008

I’m just getting started. Oh yes… this is just the start. Having way too much - so I’m taking a little break from market today and resting the ol feet. Just a few pics from set-up and Sample Spree. More to come. Oh. So. Much. More.

Oh. What’s this? Hmmm. What if, what if…

Elizabeth sees that look in my eye. And senses danger.

“Ok Pam… I’m parked in the F section on parking level one…”

Wool delights from Brenda. I got to shop early and Bren’s wool is THE most beautiful wool ever. EVER!

Sandra, Tara and Kathy from The Teacher’s Pet. These gals were such a hoot and so, so sweet! And now I’m outing Kathy as my favorite lurker!

Me, Jennifer, Pam and Elizabeth. Jennifer’s giving us the star treatment… Pam and I are giving her the boob treatment.

I didn’t take too many photos at Sample Spree. Maybe because I was too busy spreeing. More to come when I get back!

PS… guess who else came to Market? Yup… Triskit is who. And she’s making her rounds. Not only has she gone to Market… Triskit now has her very own stylist. By Market’s end, she’ll no doubt be needing a PA, a publicist, driver and personal chef. Triskit’s gettin’ around. Just saying.
Guess who came to Market...

  16. The fabulous Patty/MODKID allegedly said:

    Monica!!! I’m so sad I missed you at Market! Crap! I was at sample spree too but was a tad overwhelmed. I am dying here at your boob comment because I was just telling my roomies at Market yesterday that I was walking around Sample Spree in a sea of boobs (am am a tiny 5-ft-tall with no chest and my face was right at boob lever with everyone else!!! LOL!) I might have grazed your boob once or twice and never known it. eeek! ;)

    So glad you had a great time. I had an amazing time and as soon as I get my butt in gear I will download all the hundreds of pictured I took and blog away. Isn’t Jennifer P. the sweetest thing EVER??? UGH! I just wanted to squeeze her for an hour!

  17. The fabulous Roseann allegedly said:

    I am such a dolt! Two days into market and in the middle of the night I visualized the name on your badge and realized who you were! I had been puzzling over it because I thought I should know you and suddenly it came clear. Unfortunately, not soon enough so that I could tell you. And you gave such good advice on how far it would be by taxi to that event we wanted to go to … and didn’t. So please accept my apologies for not recognizing you for the star you are!

  18. The fabulous Kris allegedly said:

    It was great to finally meet you!!! But I must let you know that there are rumors about your friend Triskit all over Portland. I heard there might even be photos! What’s this world coming to???

  19. The fabulous Doe allegedly said:

    Looks like you’re having too much fun with the gang and “the girls”. Love that boobie treatment bit. Anyhoo, I’m somewhat disappointed that you are not wearing your pastel prairie dress. LOL!

    Hello, Triskit! Why are you in a basket full of veggies and potholders? Who are you hiding from?? LOL!

  20. The fabulous Mary Anne allegedly said:

    Look at all you girls all in one place….. causing a ruckus … er, I mean having so much fun!!! And isn’t Triskit quite the celebrity?!?! (I’m not even mentioning it to Kitty …. she’ll be so jealous I’ll NEVER hear the end of it!)

  21. The fabulous ellen crimi-trent allegedly said:

    looks like allot of fun to me, and nice you got to hand with Jennifer!! She is great!

  22. The fabulous Heidi Kaisand allegedly said:


    It was so nice to meet you in person. I’m finally getting over the fact that everyone left me at the table to eat by myself. Don’t worry, I’ll be ok. :)

    Isn’t the excitement of Market wonderful. I always love it!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
