ANNUAL KLAW FLEA MARKET
and text by Jeannie
year’s event was the best organized which showed in the abundance of donations
and the crowds who shopped.
great community event for a great cause.
Mounties – did we need a police guard? They should be posing for a calendar!
B – I do the screwing
eager Xanadus began shopping “off the wagon”
up – Carole and Susan
they come! (Helen’s still setting up!)
grabbed off the table by wise early shoppers “I’ll take this” “We need that!”
do you think this is too big?
I’ll take these.
shoppers Joe & Joanie are naturally drawn to the Wagon of Cheer
there is fashion “...for the Christmas Party”
household –“we could use that!”
came to the rescue of her grandkids as I tried to talk them
of some of these (do they look frightened?)
knowing appraisal from our local artist Bill
a man who knows his tools
she is Scandinavian she knows to “buy Jewish Memorial candles for black outs because
they burn almost 2 days”
& Ken “I used to be conceited but now I’m perfect”

money madam – Linda H
of Cheer: Bradlee lets winners drawn by “innocent children” Thomas & Emily
B-“Did I really win? I’m in shock
can have the wagon back” (third time the wagon has been returned – and to think
there were some who bought raffles because they wanted the wagon!)
overheard: Tony Manzo who hates to be photographed – “you can tell you’re
getting older when you start shopping the orthopedic section”
from event organizer Bradlee:
