Still, word of mouth and lawn signs generated enough hype for about 50 people to show up before 2, said Collette DiCarlo, who runs the Truffles Cupcakes stand. She hadn’t known anyone was waiting until she saw people in parked cars begin opening their doors at once. Many waiting were from nearby apartment complexes, either Sheridan Apartments across the street or Netherlands Village a block further.
