Josiah Trades Me Butt Sketch for Mark's Self Portrait

It's February First Thursday.

I'm wearing a skirt for some odd reason.

Two women show up unexpectedly and give me a box of trading cards that they made featuring bARTer Sauce items and stories. These two kind women have used bARTer Sauce for a class project and distributed some trading cards around the city advertising bARTer Sauce at First Thursday. I had no idea.

Then, imagine a young man walking in. HOLDING ONE OF THE TRADING CARDS....

Self Portrait of Mark

Can you see him in there?

It took me a minute, but then once Doug explained it to me, I saw it. Men are smart. I made Mark trade this to me through sheer guilt alone. Perfect.

He's an artist. One of the few actual artists who have decided to support The Sauce at this point. And while I totaly appreciated his trade offer of a Crow Cannon, I made him throw in an actual piece of art too.

Because I am evil. And selfish. And greedy. End of story.

Mark's Story about the Crow Cannon:

"While I would never consider parting with even the smallest of my inflatable pickles, I would consider trading my hand made "Crow Cannon" for your stunning monkey.

I developed the crow cannon in response to being awakened every morning by the jabbing shrill sounds of crows in my back yard. I own the only prototype and this is your chance to obtain it before it hits the mass market.

Mark gives me his Crow Cannon and a Self Portrait in exchange for the Monkey Shelf and the Ed Sullivan Collage

My most recent trade was with Mark. He's nice. So is his wife, Sandy. He wanted the Monkey shelf and the Ed Sullivan collage.

Mark traded me something called a Crow Cannon and a self portrait that he painted.

I was able to verify with his wife that he really did think it was a good idea to smash two pieces of wood together at 6am to scare away the crows. I think she is right that the crow cannon was more annoying than the crows.
