Cool, Green and the best Coffee in the world
We have a full house again this Sunday with about 30 vendors participating bringing all kinds of things for your purchase including food and crafts, tools, and household, etc, etc.
Bid 4 Boquete will be there selling their clearance priced t-shirts ($7) and their new fabric bags for both your bottled and boxed (cardboardeaux) wines.
Buenos Vecinos will be there selling their t-shirts to raise money to feed the elderly and handicapped in our communities.
Marion will be there with her usual good humor selling parts of her lifetime accumulation of stuff.
Char will be there from Ecuador bringing lots of craft items from Ecuador.
We have a new "baño" so we don't have to accompany you to our office.
Estefan will be there directing the parking.
Alexis will be there doing all the necessary odd jobs
Alexis's family will be there selling hot dogs, water, and soda (and maybe some arroz con pollo).
See you there !!!!
Shoot -- my fifteen minutes of fame -- or should that be 15 seconds -- and it wasn't necessary to remind me that I'm selling a "lifetime accumulation of stuff." I already know I only have this many cachivachis, cos I'm so freakin' old!!
Marion -- Otherwise Now Known at the Flea Market as the Happy Haggis Haggler -- See Ya Tamorrow
We prefer the term: checheres.
There's the PROOF.
I learned the word cachivachis after I came here, meaning "things you accumulate" (in other words a lifetime of s--t), most of it good, some of it -- what the heck!! What's the definition of checheres (are those what Nena and I collected 40 years ago!! Don't answer that!!)
Was their a link -- PROOF didn't work.
The post was the proof that I'm still here. ;-) (notice, that's a winkey, not a smiley)
Carcachas might be the word you really want = "clunkers", junk, checheres most closely translates as stuff.
(sorry for the language)
CAMEO WINES will be unveiling our new MANGO wine.
It's most excellent and darned good!
Come get your Sparkling Tomato Blanc and Orange "Beso de Oro" to put in those sweet cloth bags!
See you all in the morning!
And don't forget the excellent hot dogs yours truly will be selling -- with the help of our employee's family members. Hot dogs and mango wine go particularly well together.
And, after you buy the Mango or Tomato wine, amble on over to the Bid 4 Boquete table to pick up one of their hand made fabric wine bags. The ladies at the Handicap Foundation have been working hard making these lovely bags for your wine bottles (and/or boxes).
Any stories from the pulga? I really enjoy reading those.
The pulga just keeps growing and growing. There was so much good food there for lunch that I tried to sample most of it. The vendors all reported they sold a lot of stuff and some vendors donated some of their left-over stuff to the Bid 4 Boquete venta de patio sale. Gail and Dennis got the last minute idea to sell beer with their barbecue pork sandwiches and poor Dennis had to make two runs to the beer store. Next month they'll come better prepared.
Penny keeps track of all the food sold so keep an eye out each month for her report! She's been doing a lot of testing...meantime Hellmut and Linda are roaming around working the crowds seeing no one is being rowdy ....good report, all were well behaved. Many vendors have already paid for the next flea market, October 7. To reserve your space you must pay ahead ($4 space, $6 table) - call Linda 6714-2487 or see Penny at the Tuesday market to book your space or table. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org) We really do get sold out, so don't wait too long.
"We really do get sold out, so don't wait too long."
Understatement Linda. Too True. First month I went at 10:30 am to unload, (market "oh-ffi-sha-lee" opens at 11 am). Second month at 10:15 am, third month even earlier etc., etc. Now this month they opened the gates for vendors at 9:30 am -- I arrived at about 9:35 -- parking near the tables to unload was difficult to say the least and buyers were already swarming. GREAT community service Linda, Penny and Hellmut. See Ya next month, still have lots of "treasures" I need to get rid of -- amazing what you accumulate during your life. So, bottom line is -- "if ya have stuff ya don't want" call/contact Linda, Hellmut or Penny and book a table. A good chance you will sell most of it at the Flea Market and if not -- it really is a fun way to spend a few hours -- you meet the nicest people. WARNING -- you may not end up making a profit -- cos you'll spend your money on THE FOOD which so good that you just have to keep on buying and sampling!!
That's a true enough warning. We were surrounded by all kinds of tasties!!!
Plus I picked up some great classical CDs from the table next to us.
