I headed out the the Farm Chicks sale early. I wanted to see how many people would be lined up and waiting for a chance to do some serious shopping.

The photo says it all.

By 9 a.m., the lined snaked all the way from the ticket gate to the street. The entire length of the parking lot.

When the doors opened at 10 a.m. the the circus started. Dealers were ready and waiting. I walked around talking and renewing old acquintances and getting an eyeful of all the shabby treasures.

I'll be posting more as the day goes along.
