Vince says he’s going to make sure there are police here all the time. ” Maybe Vince was anticipating a decrease in the number of customers at the show, and therefore a direct decrease in revenue to Vince. It wasn’t like Vince to deprive himself of a comfortable hotel room with an attractive assistant. Maybe the situation was more serious than Maggie had assumed.

There was always at least one dealer tucking a final carton under the table covers two minutes before the show opened. This year it looked as though that dealer would be Will Brewer. The Wyndhams had put sheets over their cases and a BOOTH CLOSED sign on the chair blocking the entrance. With two of them to set up, they had probably already finished and gone to clean up. Maggie, too, had a change of clothing in her van for tonight.
Four hours of driving wasn’t too bad, but her back was stiffer than it would have been ten years ago, when she was in her twenties. Susan and her husband, Harry, about Maggie’s age, or maybe a little younger, were enthusiastic and perpetually negotiating their next big deal. Susan looked good, as always, her hair in the latest shade and style. Today she was a blonde, with a touch of silver in the front. She also looked as though she’d lost more weight. Maggie waved again. She’d have plenty of time to catch up with them—the Findleys had the booth on one side of hers, and her friend Gussie had the booth on the other side.
