  1. I would love to just look around, let alone take home some cool stuff. Too bad I live 1500 miles away.

    1. I'd love to look around through them too, but it's a tank of gas I can't afford, to look, on the second day. See, I figure the great stuff will be gone on Friday, and I'm not taking a day off work to get up there, blowing 50 bucks in gas, to look at the stuff, and on Saturday all the best stuff will be gone. People who are rich enough to not work on Friday will score the best stuff. Well, at least I got to post about it. Maybe after there will be some good photo coverage or news coverage and we'll see the more amazing things online. I'm shocked they aren't having an auction, a big money maker. I think the best things there will just get flipped on ebay
