Meet my two new ‘helpers’ . . . .

Most of you know that I have some pretty severe physical limitations due to an unexpected outcome from a spine surgery 15 years ago.  Couple that with plain ole ‘old age’ creeping in and everyday activities are becoming more difficult for me.  Especially stocking my booth at Stars and setting up for shows.  It was time to ‘get some help’ with all that work.  Meet my two new helpers:

zu14325886_main_tm1412174103A FOLDING three tier cart!!!  (that I bought fromZulilly)  
This thing is going to save me SO MUCH extra ‘lifting and carrying’!!  I have one of the old three tier metal kitchen carts, mine is rusty pink.  The shelves bend if I put too much weight on them and the wheels screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeech when I push it from place to place.  AND it takes up the entire back of my car.  So when I needed to use it for moving product around in my booth, I couldn’t fit any new stock for my booth in my car that day!  sigh.  But occasionally it was a necessary evil.  
 
**** SORRY THAT ALL THIS IS IN ITALICS!!  I CAN’T GET IT TO CHANGE TO REGULAR FONT?!?!
 
It’s just SO convenient to load the stuff I want to move to a new spot in the booth onto the cart; then I can wheel it out of the way while I prepare the new location.  Saves me a LOT of ‘bending and lifting and carrying’ of stuff from one place to another.  And this new one folds flat enough that it fits in the small space behind the front seats, without using up any of the ‘cargo space’ in my car.  
 
It also sets up and folds down SO easily, that I just might use IT instead of my ‘flat-bed’ dolly for hauling stuff from my car to my booth.  (sometimes I have to park BLOCKS away from Stars!)  The flat bed works great for furniture, but small boxes of stuff tend to ‘slide off’ if I hit a bump crossing the street!
 
THIS THING IS GOING TO MAKE MY LIFE SO MUCH EASIER!

These two new helpers are going to make my work SO much easier!
