So Munchkin Market is this brilliant concept where parents can bring their “gently used” toys, clothes, strollers, etc and sell them in one locale for a concentrated time period. Basically, a humongous garage sale. Andy and I arrived at the MN State Fair grounds to see a line of people wrapped around the outside of the building.
Andy asked if I wanted to go get a beer instead.
Well, yes … but, no.
We got in line, flashed our pre-registration pass and we were in. Holy sensory overload batman. Even though we had a few things in mind to purchase, it was hard to concentrate in the sea of stuff. And the hectic vibe of “hurry-up-and-grab-that” creates this false urgent atmosphere. One woman actually pushed Andy out of the way to get to a toy she wanted.
Thankfully we surfaced with 2 Bumbo’s, 1 Baby Einstein exersaucer, a bag full of toys and only a few minor cuts and bruises.
