I showed up to Hangar 30 of Magnusen Park in Seattle pretty early. I have found going about this alone, I am generally one of the first vendors there and last to leave. My set-up and break down just take me longer than seasoned show vendors.
I enjoyed the community of friends I had made throughout each show. Other people had signed-up to do all of these shows and we began to recognize each other each weekend and have a certain camaraderie.
And then I overheard someone describe this life as being a 'Carnie' and I was stopped dead in my tracks. Dreams do come true!
That evening I returned to my cousins house and he gave me a tour of the new home they would be moving to the following day. I understand big moves and choices, and I’m happy for them.
