Monday Montage- Goodies Part I

Before I start showing the pics,
I want to let everyone know that
the estate sale that Bob and I went to last Friday 
was for the HGTV show Cash N Cari.

I told Bob that I did not want to be on camera.
I hate getting my picture taken...
but it happened that we purchased 2 of the featured items.
So guess what...I got on camera.

They interviewed me by myself three times
and Bob and I together twice.

I must say it was quite the production.

Just standing in line, they made us all stand a certain way,
and turn to the right and then to the left.
Then we all had to smile and they took our pictures again.

Cast Iron Door Stop

Oh, I forgot
We all had to sign a waiver before they started filming
After that a young gentleman put our name on a small chalkboard
and he took our pictures individually.
I sort of felt like someone being arrested and they took my mug shot. LoL

The first time I was caught on camera
I was tricked.
I had picked up a checkerboard.

Then Cari's assistant asked me if
I had seen the game board in a different room;
which I did not.
Of course she had to show me...

This game is called Krokinole or Carrom.
It is similar to shuffleboard.
This particular game is from 1902.

Back to the story.
When the assistant started telling me about this reversible game

Checkerboard on the reverse side.

She lifted the board up a little and I lifted my eyes up a little...
That is when I saw the microphone above me.

Close up of Pocket

I did not dare turn my head...
I knew they were filming me then. Yuk.

Gorgeous splint handled early basket

After she was done explaining the game
she asked me if I wanted to purchase it.
Of course I had to ask if she could do better on the price.
She said she would have to ask Cari.

Preserve Crock

That was when I heard
"Let's get Cari in here."

Coke Ice Pick

I turned my head then and saw 5 guys standing there
with cameras, microphones, clipboards.

Then Cari came into the room,
and I heard

I felt like I was a movie star then.

Cari asked me if I wanted to purchase the game board.
I asked her if she could do a better price.
She said hmmm. Let me see...
She looks at the price and says, how about ____
I said "SOLD"

Then we were interviewed for purchasing this beauty.

It was quite the experience.
The show we were told will air sometime this Summer.
I will try and let everyone know when.

Part 2 of our finds another day.
Prim Blessings To All
