Anyway... I don't have a lot of pictures of shoppers and the basement where the activity was. My job was to play doorman, letting people in, giving them a shopping bag, and directing them downstairs. During lulls, I spent my time taking pictures of anything nearby that had a face on it. I can't stress enough how cool Gaye's house is. First-time sale-goers always want a tour. Actually, that goes for second-timers, third-timers, etc...
I have been in Gaye's house many, many, many times, and even I keep seeing things I've never noticed before.
So what kind of house is this that intrigues people so much? It's the kind of house where you stare at a lovely woman in a red dress with shiny black boots, only to realize it's actually an umbrella.
It's the kind of house that has a whimsical doorstop, two bathing beauties under an umbrella.
Her house is also the kind of place where you might even find a surprise in the refrigerator. Her motto is that you should find something that makes you happy no matter where you look. So it is not at all unusual to find a fresh flower in a vase when you open the refrigerator door.
Or, on the shelf above it, something to just make you laugh!
That's the report from the land of Gaye Joy.... She has cleared out lots of things so she can concentrate on her "new focus", which many people asked about. I think she is going to start raising chickens and selling eggs on the side or something. But you didn't hear it from me.
