Margo's got the Cargo, and Ki loads the Rig!!

Ki has made some great friends through her junking pursuits. One who has become a very good friend (and is a knowledgeable junker in her own right) is Margo Arrick, aka Robo Lady, from Margo's Junkin' Journal. In fact, Margo was Ki's junking buddy for a recent flea market adventure/shoot which was also the first feature shot for the magazine! It just so happens Margo also happens to have a very talented son, Allen, who is a professional photographer, so he amiably followed Ki and his mom around, photographing the feature on the fly. If he didn't already know, (and he should, with Margo as his mom!) junkers in the pursuit of great junk don't move at a slow pace!!

Although Ki found it difficult to shop while being photographed, she did manage to pull it off, as a true professional always does! Woohoo!!

Where was this flea market, you ask?

Well, you'll just have to wait and buy the magazine to find out - but, it is a goody!!

That was such a fun day, thank you for blogging about it. Wish I could re-live it.

I am perusing the "Flea Market Style" blog for the first time + reading all of the past posts.

Love the behind-the-scenes look you are providing. I've been a fan of many of the contributors through their past magazine pursuits + am excitedly looking forward to the launch in 2010~

I would be remiss if I did not admit the reference to Stompin Tom's "Margo's Cargo" had me chuckling for a good minute or two. Looking forward to reading more about Ki's + Margo's Cargo between the pages of Flea Market Style.

OK, I had no clue about the Margo's Cargo song, but I do now. How appropriate. One guy at work says I'm the Queen of CR*P, I guess It's true.
Thanks for the laugh.
