Thanks for all the visits, comments and emails about yesterday’s post! Most popular by far. Without further adieu, the final results from our two-person panel of esteemed judges for the “Best Pick” are in!
Drum roll please….
Yes, it’s the Mirror!
Who did the judges think bought which item?
Mirror – Eric (the basketmaker) – WRONG
Statue – Karen (the expert) – CORRECT
Radio – Eric (the sherpa) – WRONG
Putter – Lynne (the basketmaker’s wife) – SO VERY WRONG!
Below are the REAL buyers for each item:
Mirror – Lynne (the basketmaker’s wife)
Statue – Karen (the expert)
Radio – Eric (the basketmaker)
Golf Putter – Eric (the sherpa)
We all had a great time and it really doesn’t matter who wins. (Yeah right. I’m only saying that because I WON! Yah for me!) And I received many guesses via email and some by blog comments and nobody got it right. Even the judges! My own brother and mother thought I bought the golf club! In their defense, they thought I was trying to throw everybody off but come on. You don’t need to think that much! LOL.
And I saw Karen’s entire stash after we left the flea market. We took two vehicles because Karen easily fills up the back of a truck. Below are all the items she walked away with in the two hours of browsing (You can see her reflection in the back window looking everything over). I know she might’ve “threw” the competition because there were some awesome items in there! Keep an eye out on her online store because some of the items will be listed soon!
Now who do you think schlepped all those items into the truck bed? Yup, you guessed it. Her husband, Eric the sherpa. Even though Eric hought he was inexperienced to participate, (and coming in last did not help) nothing is further from the truth! Can a climber reach the summit of Mt. Everest without their sherpa? No! Karen and Eric make a great team. How does the saying go? Behind every smart woman there’s a strong man?
Do you agree with the judges? If not, who do you think should have won the “Best Pick”? Vote below:
