Things you should know about the OC Marketplace

There is a short list of some of the greatness of the OC Marketplace.
Or as we call it around here "The Swapper."
1. More people drink beer at 9am than you think.
2. While you are setting up don't tell the umbrella sales men next to your space that you sell umbrellas too, but for $5 cheaper. (They won't talk to you for the rest of the day.) 3. Old men in designer jeans look stupid.
4. The Chocolate dipped ice cream is delish. 5. If you put trick-or-treating candy out parents will grab and go without making eye contact.
6. Very few parents enforce manners. 7. If you were looking for a place to wear your umbrella hat, you've found it... 8. Jack in the Crack at 5am is heaven in a bun. 9. If you look at any clothes long enough you consider buying. 10. You might meet a delightful pirate named Captain Edward James Teague. He is awesome! Check out his info here.11. I love my husband. 12. Eli's Lids ROCKS... ...and I'm thinking of some new styles inspired of The Swapper.

Love this post! Ha ha.. I haven't been at the Swapper in a long time. I'm going to have to visit soon. I love that place and the fruit there is the best!

I couldn't stop laughing because I remember last time I was there at 10am I watched a guy with gulp down a beer. Who drinks that early?

Can't wait to chat on Wed morning and confirm our playdate at Pretend city!
