What was even nicer was that The King dropped me off at the door so no parking fees or a walk from the parking garage in the freezing temps. However, the parking fees might have been cheaper than the money he might have spent at the Outlet mall that was just a block away. As it turns out he didn't spend a dime! Mark that on your calendars; he IS the King of shopping! I can assure you though that I made up for it at the Quilt Show.
I posted on FaceBook along with this picture "Look what Gregg bought me and he isn't even here! I'm a good shopper for him though. I got the floor model. Get to bring it home with me this afternoon after the show is over."
I have officially been banned from purchasing anything else that is remotely large or weighs over 10 pounds. First of all, the table barely fit in the back of the Escape. I had to move my seat all the way up and rode home with my knees in the glovebox compartment (a small price I had to pay for it. lol). Then William and the King had to maneuver it around the turn of the stairs. We finally had to stand it up on it's end. And then up the flight of stairs to my studio. It took all three of us to heave it up each step. But we did it and I'm so happy with it.
I was pretty good about my purchases until the afternoon. I started out in the Market area first and that's when I bought the floor model of the sewing table. It's a Tracey's Table. I've admired them for a good number of years and finally bit the bullet and bought one. Since I purchased the floor model, I get an even better deal than the "Show Special" that was listed. I only purchased 2 fat quarters after that.
Then I went to drool over the quilts. I'll show my drool worthy photos tomorrow. Ok, maybe one or two for now.
