Sample Spree!

Well, if you've heard of the International Quilt Market, you've probably heard of Sample Spree. It's where all the vendors have a small table before the market opens and offer their things for super cheap prices so that the shops will go home and make up a sample (and thus sell the product). Here's a little peek of the one that just happened.
 They're all waiting to come on up! But this isn't even close to the amount waiting -- the line went down the hall for a mile.
 My sister Julie and my cousin Marie helped me.
 Here come the first ones! Everyone was taking pictures of the masses coming up.
 Time for power shopping.

I'd love to one day be at the market, but stuff like THAT doesn't appeal to me- the pushing and shoving around.... I've been to business fairs like these several times when I was little..

That last picture made me laugh. It looks like the woman in the red is running to get whatever someone is tempting her with in the white bag. =) I'll bet it was fun, though furious and fast!
