What. The Heck. Is That.
Yesterday was full of Boston Bazaar Bizarre MADNESS. Thousands upon thousands of people for 8 hours. I sold out of 1/2 my prints 2 hours into it (mostly because I ran out of ink the night before and only had about 1/2 of what I would have liked to bring).

Picture this, I'm sellin stuff, all is well...THEN... this unearthly...whiney...haunting..slightly off-key rendition of Hark the Herald starts bouncing off the walls so loudly that I can hardly hear the customers.
