Spartanburg, 2009- The attempted Okey Doke
This young lady had a booth at the Spartanburg show, "Bonnie's Vintage Guitars" and it featured a very nice collection of vintage Martin and Gibson Guitars. Here's what happened when this cool, slick city fella eased up on her and tried to buy some of them....
Photo 1. Bonnie to self: "It's such a nice day and I have all these nice guitars. All these dealers are being good boys and it's not too loud in here. I am the queen of the world".
Photo 2. Fella on the left: "Howdy, little lady. My name's Gary and I'd like to take a look at some of these fine flattops you got here. I've picked a little in my day, you know. I'm good looking, I don't bite my fingernails and I own a chain of General's Fried Chicken stores, so I'm here to do some damage, I mean business".
Bonnie to self: I can't wait 'till football season starts- Oh, did you say something"?
Photo 3. A guy walks up and asks Bonnie if she would like to buy a 1956 Takamine D-29 with a couple of fighter plane stickers on the front and Brazilian rosewood strap buttons. For some reason they both started laughing uncontrollably.....
Photo 4. Unable to crack her hard exterior or breach her tough business savvy, the gentleman tries one last, desperate maneuver.
Fella on left: "Look, there's a midget with a genuine Louis Vuitton bag".
Bonnie to self: You know, if the Panthers shore up their defensive secondary and get a decent draft pick for the offensive line, they just might have a chance this year"......
