My Birthday Present.

  This year for my birthday Geff, also once famous news photog, gave me the most amazing present and  you can take a look at it here My birthday present.  I actually teared up.  It reminded me how far 2nd Saturdayz has come and how much I love the vendors and the folks who come to support us every month.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, go take a look.

Nov 2 Sat

I wanted to make sure that you know that 2nd Saturdayz is this Saturday, November 12th in the workshop at Magnuson Park.  Please check our web site or blog for detailed directions.

This month we have some really great new vendors joining us.  Barb, of Scout, will be back in the hanger.  We are so excited to have her, I love her style.  She is continually fresh and fun. And we just love to have her vibe in the building.  Dena, from Spokane is making the trek.  She is totally fabulicious.  Her stuff is so good.  Really, really great.  And she is fabulicious as well.  Both she and mr fabulicious will be here.  All I can say is bring the big truck. Really, the big truck.  We will be having the cupcake lady, and a vintage christmas duo.....and then YES        WillowNest. The one and only.  I hear angles sing when I see their offerings.  Linda and Ludmil have a style and presence that is uniquely their own.  It is really unheard of that they would do a show in Seattle, since they live in Burton Texas, but they will be here, and I am so grateful.  For all of us it will be a real treat to see them at work.  I am really amazed by all our vendors. Month after month they drag a room or 2 full of stuff, arrange it, price it, make it look interesting and can still crack a joke or two when folks walk thru the door Saturday Morning

I was just saying to Geff, that my favorite thing is to walk into the workshop with him and Virginia at 5:30am on Saturday morning and see it.  All ready and waiting, for you.  

What I want is for everyone to live a happy life.  I know that sounds sappy but really I do.  And I think that leading a life of beauty, filled with items that are unique and that are treasured and have been treasured is a step in a really happy life.  

I refer to our vendors as the Junk Tribe, and I know each of them works really hard to bring to you every month bits and tads of beauty and inspiration.  I hope you take the time to stop by on Saturday, the music will by on and we will be there 8-3, early buying starts at 8 and the entry is $10.00 after 10 it is $5.00.  And yes, the first 20 folks thru the door at 8 get one of Bob's treat bags, and this month I think that Deb has something "cooked" up for the first few folks in after 10 as well.

 thanks L

We got some legends coming.........

My friends Linda and Ludmil are coming to 2nd Saturdayz!  We are so excited!

Linda and Ludmil will be vendors at 2nd Saturdayz in November, and Linda will be giving a talk about how to thrive and survive in the Vintage Business.

Linda and Ludmil, known as willownest , are legendary, that is what Serena of the Farm Chicks called them.  And they are.  Folks are coming out of the wood work to tell me how Willownest inspired them, Trisha Brink of Grandiflora in Lynden WA said, "I "grew up" in my late teens/early 20's drooling over all the wonderful things Linda would dream up and Ludmill would craft. They were the ultimate couple to me....and after meeting them and spending a couple of hours with them at their home & shop....we were so inspired and invigorated that we came back to Grandiflora teaming with awesome ideas. I am so thankful for all their years of hard work and wonderful has helped me to be who I am today....and what Grandiflora has become. They were so genuine & helpful....not what you'd expect from "famous" folks. I'm so glad I had a chance to meet them in person. :)"  When I chatted with Judy Watkins of Remnants of the Past, she mentioned that Linda had been a mentor to her as well.  When Linda and Ludmil moved from southen Washington to Texas they gave the Barn House Boys their start.  Willownest has graced the pages of County Living, Romantic Homes and we all recall Linda as the Queen of Glitter when they had their sweet little store in Buxton.  

Linda and Ludmil are never content to be big fish in a small pond so they moved to Texas and now show with the creme de la creme at Marburger during Round Top and this past summer was spent in the south of France shopping and hob nobbing with the lovely Corey Amaro famous blogger of Tongue in Cheek.

Linda inspires me almost daily, she is funny, smart and knows how to spin magic.  I love her and she will be at the Workshop where we have 2nd Satudayz on Friday, November 11th at 10 O'clock to talk about how they have created a beautiful lifestyle doing what they love.  We will be serving a box brunch,  if you are in the resale vintage industry and would like to join us the cost is $27.00.  E-mail me at and I will get you on the list.  We must know by Oct 28th.  Hope to see you either at the brunch or at the show.  I will be wonderful.

So I'm wondering, we always have a big discussion about signage here at 2sat.

Most of the vendors like us to put up signs , we usually put the signs up on friday.   But I contend, and the "experts" that I met with agree, that signs are useless.  And esp. if you are having a event in the middle of a huge city in the middle of a well known park.  I think signage inside the park to be the most valuable.

So the question is, do you need signs to find 2nd Saturdayz?  If you see a sign along side of the road that has an event on it will you just follow the sign and go to the event?  I think that the social media is the new signage.  But wondering what you all think?

I love this shot of 2nd Saturdayz,  it was taken a few months ago during set up.  Deb and I had gotten a little whacky with the chalk.  That is probably the Divine Ms Virginias product awaiting the proper staging.

So we have a full house for August 13th and I am just biting at the bit to get to the hanger and see some great junk and have a visit with the tribe.  Hope to see you there.

The winners of the 2nd Sat fabulous Friday set up day are Fish Tail Cottage,  and the lovely and so talented Lisa Johnson from A Thing for Roses, and one more cuz I screwed up the counting , Queen of the Tin Palace.  Really I just wanted to have everyone but the vendors threatened a mutiny.   So there you go.  I will be contacting each of you with details.  Oompa-Lompas may be sighted.

Thanks so much for entering.

Fabulous Give Away...2 of You and a Friend get to Shop on set up day!!!

So this is the thing, we are going to offer early buying to 2 parties of 2.  For our May show.  So that would be for Friday May 13th in Snohomish for our 1 year anniversary.

You and a friend will be able to come into the secret realm of 2sat set up Friday and shop to your hearts content.  First choice at anything that you see being brought in.  You can come as early as noon and stay the whole afternoon, evening or come and go or what ever suits you little junk loving heart.  We will offer libation and poo poos and some itsy bitsy gifts and trinkets.

I can tell you, there is no show that is not at it's most fun the day of set up.  I totally love set up days.

Just tell us a favorite junking story, or about a  best find or about a junk store that you love.  And we will number the comments as they come in and pick 2 outa a hat.  We will combine the comments we get here with any that we get on Facebook, let the wild rumpus begin!

Deb will love this idea, now who is gonna tell her?

We are looking to add to the tribe for May.

If you would like to be a vendor please contact Deb.  We are looking for some flower vendors or bakers.  We have some extra room and are excited to make it a really fun Urban Market.  Know any Jugglers or Mimes?

We are having a great time planning this market in Snohomish, the 14th of May.

Road Trip!!!!!!!!!!!!

So in May we are doing a show on the road.  If you are interested in being in the show as a vendor please let us know.  It is a big space and we would love to fill it up, but only if we can find a really good mix of vendors.  So if you have never done a show, we would love to see what you want to do.  Send pix to let us get a sense of your style and product.

We are calling this The Road Show, and most, if not all of our regular vendors will be there.  Along with some folks who have spent sometime on "Debs list".  And we have room for more.

But first, is our April show.  Which is so packed full of great vendors that Rachel, the nice lady who takes the money in the morning, may have to be suspended by a sling over the door.  I love the workshop so much but we really are looking for a larger spot in Seattle.  If anyone has any ideas please let us know. I would just stay in our little room forever with the 30 vendors we can squeeze in there but because of the increased popularity of the show we need more parking and just more space for customers to move about.  Not a bad problem to have, but something that will need to be thought about in the next year.

We are celebrating one year of 2nd Saturdayz in May.  It is a dream come true for me, Lulu, and I think Deb is having some fun to.  I can not tell you how fun it is to hang out with this group of creative, interesting, gypsies.  They make me laugh.  Deb is the best, she keeps me sane and grounded.  And Geff and Drew make is physically possible for us to do the show.  I can not even begin to imagine doing the show without them.  They do so much of the behind the scenes.  And my friend Virginia, love Virginia. In a lot of ways Virginia is what 2nd Saturdayz is all about to me.  I love that she wants to be apart of it.  And God help the person who messes up her coffee table or bathrooms.  Believe me, the toilet paper
situation has been gone over throughly at coffee many a morning.  She also makes sure the bills get paid and we have the permits and licenses to do the show.  The Junk Tribe is my dream come true.  I feel like I have found my people.  Thank-you.

Well...It's true. The Gypsy Junk Tribe is taking the May Market to...

IT'S A GO!  And it's right on 2nd Street, just ONE block up from some of your other favorite haunts, like, Annie's on First, R&R, Faded Elegance, Joyworks, lot's of Junking!  You can come and spend the day!   So, we'll see you all at April 9th's Market at our still "favorite" original nest, at the workshop at Magnusen Park!  We'll have all the scoop about May, and we have seriously PACKED the house!  All about Easter, and Spring, and 20 Easter Baskets FULL, for our first 20 early buyers.  Bob is hard at work ;)  So see?  We really are...
