Summer started here (and I'm assuming in most other places in the South as well) in mid to late April, and by all accounts it has been on average at least ten degrees warmer than is normal, per day, during most of that time. Even where I am, which is at around the 1900 ft elevation mark, it has been averaging over 90 degrees with a real feel of over a 100 degrees since basically May.
And this past Saturday was no exception with the temperature at 95 degrees and the real feel of 105. I really wasn't in the mood to attend this particular show, but I have been in desperate need of supplies and there is a guy there that has just about the best prices on such things, that I have seen.
Also, since everyone seems to be gearing up for the end of September show, which is supposed to be the biggest one in their history (120 tables) I didn't know what to expect as far as dealer turn out goes. But it turned out to be sell out show, with what seemed to be even more people attending than normal, which made the room even hotter (and whiffier, but I won't go in to that).
The last thing I will mention before getting to some pictures, is this show was a bit unusual for me in that I didn't buy anything over 25 cents, with most of it being from the ten cent boxes. Not that I'm complaining, it's nice to go to a show and only spend a little over $20 on cards for a change, and the total cost of the supplies that I went there for was $22 (I wanted to make sure I didn't need anything for a while again).
So after all that, here is a small sampling of what I got:
Since I was done with the show relatively early, just a little after 10am (the inside of the card had to be at least 150 degrees already), I decided to eat my lunch (I always bring my own) early and stop at a thrift store before heading home. Even though this particular thrift store isn't one of my favorites, I hadn't been there for at least six months, plus it's easier to get back to the highway by heading in that direction. I didn't end up finding much (as expected), but I was able to walk away with a couple of videos that were new to me:
