Do you know how many people show up to this stuff? It was Crazy in the morning! We had alot of wares to sell. (We sold out of Hot Dogs pretty early.) Thanks to all who donated toward this cause. We didn't make thousands, but we did make hundreds so it was all good. There was a huge rummage sale at Redwood Acres also the same day. Big Thanks to Steve and Diane Harris, Maggie Herblin, Patti Stammer, Susan Brinton, Elizabeth Farnsworth, Nick and Sharon Mitchell, Arcata Countertops and of course Operating Engineers local 3. We have stuff left over for a future sale for the Humboldt Domestic Violence Services in the future.
Robin and I were able to finish up and hustle over to Mike Thompson's Bounty by the Bay at the Adorni. Kind of a high end hottsy totsy type event. Different vineyards and beer distributors gave out samples. Food was supplied by different restaurants. It was a different forum than his old gatherings but it was good. But I miss the old Eureka Inn gatherings. I guess I am a traditionalist.
