I have shopped the Flea, and though it was FAR too small, with few of the vendors I'd hoped to see, I have a new moose "mop" flogger, and another flogger with 8 rubber tails, and a leather-handled rubber hose doing an admirable cane impersonation, and a somewhat silly leather paddle, and an assortment of canes in various weights, and will soon receive a nylon single-tail in the mail. I did spend my entire budget, so I guess the size was OK, even if the pieces I got weren't the ones I was really hoping to replace (those being a small flogger from Chicago Toolworks, and a "large Davo" from a vendor whose name sadly escapes me)... But I expect both of these will be at the Winter Flea, and I'm pretty sure I'll be there -- even if it conflicts with my other event again.
But now -- tonight!
I'm in Chelsea now, showering off the sweat of the Flea, and finding some acceptably funky wardrobe. I will be leaving here about 7:30-7:45, and heading to Harvard Square, there to try to steal a person or three away from Drummy, because I will be leaving *there* around 8:30-8:45, to head for Allston-Brighton, there to enter Harper's Ferry, and get down to the funkadelic prowess of Booty Vortex, followed by the reportedly fantabulous Superhoney.
I can offer some transportation to one or two -- or three if two of them will share a seat -- but you must reach me at home before 7:30, or find me at the Congo by 8:30....
EDIT: I will NOT be at the Congo at all -- so meet me at the Ferry, or see me next time!
