I arrived at tonight's opening of ANCA's sPIN exhibition two minutes after it officially started.And one of the first people I saw was the Gallery Manager, who was clutching a roll of red dots. 'You've almost sold out!' she said as she saw me.
I'd worn my lucky red spot brooch, bought from an earlier version of the show, which obviously worked.
Because, within another two minutes this lovely woman bought the last brooch.
Yep, completely sold out in six minutes,
With disappointed friends who had hoped to buy one of them.
(It almost made up for the fact that my name was misspelled on the catalogue...)
