Aside from food, show posters, guitar straps, and "a really gay fox tail," there are so many things that you can purchase at the Bumbershoot Festival. Perhaps the most curious are high thread count sheets sold by a friendly lady from West Seattle. I knew that I had to cover the fact that she had a booth, or if people found her presence fitting. Sorry, those are probably the worst bed puns ever.
What's your first name and where do you live? I'm Tanya, I live in West Seattle.
And you're selling sheets are the Bumbershoot Festival. I am.
How are the sheets selling at the Bumbershoot Festival? Sheets are doing very well today.
Who buys sheets at the Bumbershoot Festival? Everybody buys sheets at the Bumbershoot Festival!
What do you tell people if they want to try the sheets out before they buy them? I have them feel the sheets, to feel how soft they are.
Is that usually sufficient for a person? It really is.
And have you sold sheets other years at the Bumbershoot Festival? I have not.
Oh, this is the first year? I remember there was a sheet booth last year. Yes, first year. That wasn't me last year.
How would you feel if another sheet booth opened up near you, would you take that lying down? Competition is good.
Do you use these sheets? Do you recommend them? I do, they're very soft and very luxurious.
Do you think that the common person can tell the difference between a high thread count sheet and a low thread count sheet? I hope so. But fancy sheets don't really divide economic classes at all? They aren't just for the wealthy? You can just feel them, how soft they are.
Are there any last words that you'd like to add about sheets? Come and buy sheets. (pause) From the sheet lady!
