The King is Dead-Long Live the King

We interrupt your programming for a special public service announcement. The one, the only, Cat Daddy-King of the road, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of all cool junk, the CEO of auctions, will be making an appearance for one day only. He will be appearing at the semi-annual street sale in The Trinity Antiques District on October 25, 2008 from 8:00 am until the last stalker, I mean gawker, has left.
Now please, no pushing and shoving. There will be ample seating for all. As long as you are buying, you are allowed to get up close and personal with the Man of the Year.
Reservations will not be necessary as we are saving a place of honor for you. You can even take one or six of these chairs home with you as a memento of this special day. I will personally guarantee he will sit on every one of these chairs as if it were a throne(without a magazine).
He will be available for autographs and all photo ops. He will also be collecting autographs, preferably on checks, at that time.
You will be able to peruse the merchandise and souvenirs he has collected on his journeys down life's highway for your own collections. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. To actually get to purchase something the great one's hands have touched and loaded. Smelling salts will be available. I cannot stress enough, this is not, I repeat not, for the faint hearted.
I know the great risk I myself am taking by allowing him out alone without a bodyguard. But remember girls, only his stuff(and by that I mean goodies, I mean junk, oh, you know what I mean) is for sale. You cannot steal him from me. I might give him to you, but you must never try to steal the star from the Queen's crown.
I'll leave you with this photo to get your hearts racing. Remember-Oct. 25, Trinity Antiques District street sale, Industrial Blvd., Dallas, Texas. Be there or be square. This is your announcer returning you to your regular programming.

Great post - I wish I could be there to see all your treasures. Who knew that they made those cool chairs with heart shaped backs! Sue

Gurl...what exactly will YOU be doing while Cat Daddy is on his tour? Nails? Massage? Washing your considerable locks? This sounds mighty suspicious. I need a spy in Dallas.

I plan on being at Amy's (Bloom & Bee Swanky) open house spending the money he'll be making. Or at least that's what I'm telling him, besides no one wants to see me, only Dan the Man! Debbie

Oh, goody. You'll be at Bloom and Be Swanky! I just made plans this morning to drop by there myself. Can't wait to meet you!

Oh, and great post. Love your sense of humor!

This post is hilarious, but you know the stuff is in good hands!! So wish CD was coming but at least glad you are!! We'll be there with all kinds of cool junk!!

If only I could be there. Those heart chairs would be fabulous with my red notes. Speaking of which...Thank you, thank you, six for five plus a darling little girls outfit which will be displayed in my laundry room. You probably think I'm a goof but I just opened your package today. I was waiting to decide where I was going to hang the notes. I will be posting them and you as soon as I get my music wall arranged. Hooray for Debbie!

You make me laugh and laugh until I cry! Stealing CatDaddy er.... CatDaddy's goodies, er...
The stuff you all find is amazing, and it's unfortunately always "window shopping" for me, because I am too far away to partake of the wonderment.... ;-)
Someone opening a cool little diner NEEDS those chairs SO bad! And the little garden chandelier is darling...
Now, you better get back to CatD, before someone leaves catnip out and lures him away.
