Fitting an Octagon into a Triangle - Brimfield purchase

My friend Beverly and I woke up early Saturday morning had breakfast at our hotel and rushed to do a quick pick up of items we did not carry Friday, then we were going to park her car and shop. Well We ran into Rosemary Warren the very talented creative director of Tinsel Trading Co. She was trying to just get rid of everything in her booth because she is moving to LA soon and so we saw a 7 foot Curio and she said if you take it you can have it for $50! Um Beverly said "MINE"...and we all looked at her like she was nuts. How was she fitting an "octagon in a triangle"? ahaha I stopped doubting and accepted that women are awesome packers and awesome basically at everything! hahaa Well one woman said she would eat her hat if it went in and Rosemary said forget it I will give you your money back..2 strong gentlemen showed up and they said "no way" but tried and the "octagon fit perfectly in the triangle", with just a drop hanging out with a 5 hour drive for Beverly to go later that day and all went well. We were trying to find a hat for the lady to eat! lol Never doubt a professional junkin shopper!! Oh by the way we fit "lots" more things in that car inside curio around curio and even stopped at a nursery so I could buy a beautiful huge hanging plant!! xoox

It sounds like our trips to IKEA with my daughter when she got her first apartment. We had to fit so many long things that she bought in the store in our little Subaru!
