I don't know about "legendary"; I'd reserve that for Sellam's early events 
which were more like a flea market plus exhibits.  BUT, I was very pleased 
with how consignment was managed last year.   I was surprised at how 
thoroughly the "FREE" table cleared.

Well, it wasn't bad.  Not great; but OK.
Much like Diogenes' favorite wine :-)

And how!

It's a maybe whether I can manage to get there this year.
But, I won't be able to take a carload of stuff.

Well, announcement of Apple Ones is certain to bring about arguments about 
the machine.  I think that one is well worth $666.66   but not what people 
are paying for them.

This "thread jacking" continuous heading off on tangents is the basis of 
Vannevar Bush's dislike of hierarchical organization of information, Ted 
Nelson's "Hypertext", and Berners-Lee's WWW.
