I admit that I don't get out enough.  I have what I like to call my little Tacoma animal trials.............sorta a pattern of Junk stores and Antique malls that I lurk around in for good stuff.

But when I got an invite to go to lunch in Bothell with some of "the most amusing ladies", and I was told there would be chocolate milkshakes as well, there was no question, Bothell next stop.

I had long wanted to stop into Country Village, and it right up the road from the famous Ranch Drive Inn, so I went and I had no is like a little disney town, complete with pond and an old guy feeding the ducks.  Sam Wheeler at the Antique Mall made me feel right at home.......and while I was there the most amusing ladies came into fluff their mall space.  It was good hunting and gathering.

So Bothell is on the new Animal Trail list, chocolate shakes and good junk, really what more can a girl ask for?

Jackie Lee Eagan Knapp just posted a blip on FB about me doing her beyond great show in Anacortes, April 28th, called Island Chicks.     They let the show go for a brief period of time and another promoter did it.  I was not asked to attend when that promoter had the show, in fact I believe I was told that I wasn't welcome to even shop it.....anyway when I read all the nice things that Jackie wrote about I had an "oh God I'm so not worthy moment", and this is why.

Even tho I have been running 2nd Saturdayz from almost the first show, it was not started by me alone.  Truth be told is started on a trip with Frank and Virginia to Port Orchard, which Virginia thought was Port Townsend.....and I was in the back seat whining about Fremont in the winter, and Frank said we should start our own show.  Do it at Sandpoint on the months when Denis doesn't have a show.  Well that went no where, but I coerced John and Bob into my scheme.  And we looked and looked for venues all over the area.  And finally one day at a Denis Eros show I just made up my mind that we were putting a deposit on the venue and going for it.  And we did, we contacted all the vendors we had met over the years and asked them if they would be interested in a monthly show.......Gail & Otis were the first paid vendors we had.  And both John and Bob worked so hard making the show a go.  Bob has the decorating bug big time and that first show that he and Bev did was so lovely.  It was swoon worthy.  But Bob and John decided that they just wanted to be vendors and they were great vendors, they also made the gift bags and vendor bags, Bob would make vendor pins that I would promptly lose, but some of the vendors still wear them.  What I am saying is this.  I am totally responsible for getting the show paid for every month.  But John and Bobs spirit will always be there as far as I am concerned, and if anybody had good things to say about 2nd Saturdayz, they certainly deserve part of the credit.  That is why I needed to put a disclaimer out into the planet internet.

But Thank-You Jackie, my pin boards do rock.

Vendor info, floor plan.

New Vendor Information.
So you think you want to become a member of the Junk Tribe, well here is the scoop.

The market is held monthly , the 2nd Saturday of the month at Magnuson Park,7400 Sandpoint Way, in Seattle wa, in the workshop attached to hanger 30.

2nd Saturdayz is billed as a Urban market, not a flea market. I love a flea but 2nd Sat is just a bit different in that we work really hard to make each market a event that our customers not only leave with interesting items but are inspired as well.
We are a vintage only market, I hate the word juried, but I do need to have a sense of the type of items you are selling, pictures and what other, if any other markets you have done.
We love fresh, never- before -done- a -show- folks, and are happy to mentor and encourage. I love what I do and am happy to help in any way I can.

We are in a small venue, we kinda like a small venue, and we may stay in a small venue for along time. That means we only have room for a small number of new vendors each month. We have our regular Junk Tribe that has been with us since the beginning and we are totally loyal to them about their spaces. But we have some spots that we save every month for new vendors or different vendors and we encourage you to apply and give it a shot.

If you have any other questions you can take a look at our web site, or you can e-mail me at, or call, 253.709.6041 and I will get back to you.

 We are really a happy show. We really want all our vendors to be successful and have a good time.

Thanks for considering hanging out with us.
