As many of you know, I have gone through a significant transition.  Yes, I am still at Sandra's Satchels at the Pike Place Market.

Generally, I will be there on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and most Sundays.

Due to this transition, I will post any schedule changes on this Blog.

Since I no longer have agents at the Market, I have had the pleasure of meeting all of my loyal customers in person at the Pike Place Market.

I will be resuming my Monthly Newsletter, which has been on hold during this transition.  You will be seeing my exciting new fabrics on my website at .

I finally found the photo of Patti Duke and I when Pam Corwin brought her to the Pike Place Market as our bell ringer.  Having grown up watching her television show, I was thrilled to be able to meet her and let her know how much I loved her show.  I treasure this photo and meeting such a beautiful and gracious woman.

40% Off Sale!

I love the beautiful woven jacquard fabrics I use so much that, when it gets down to the last one or two satchels in a fabric, it's hard to let them go!  But after 15 years at Pike Place Market, and hundreds of fabrics, it's time to say good-bye.

I am offering my overstock satchels at 40% off at Pike Place Market this month. There are too many beautiful options to list them all, but a few include:

One purple medium shoulder bag, for you purple people, and a couple of cheerful pinks.

Two smalls in a fabric by Ray and Charles Eames, famous mid-century designers

Lush floral tapestries

A wide variety of eyeglass cases, including some in current fabrics.

And of course there is also an array of bags in my current fabrics available at regular prices.

I work at the Market on most Sundays and some Wednesdays* and would love to see you in person, or you can stop by on Monday or Tuesday and see my agent Rachel, or Thursday through Saturday and see Mariya.  We always set up in the North Arcade day stalls. (It surprises many people to learn that we don't have a set space.  Instead, we choose our spots each morning in order of seniority.  Even after more than a decade my number is 101, but fortunately not everyone shows up every day!)

*There will be one or two Sundays and a few Wednesdays in January when we will not be open.  You can call me at (206) 256-0161 to confirm that we are there.

Oh, my!!!  It has been way too long since I have posted here.  I sure know what my New Year's Resolution will be.  

I would love to hear your ideas about what you would like to see in our Satchels for the New Year!  

Because so many of my customers are from near and far, from Seattle to Australia, my online shop at Etsy will be a very important priority.  I will continue to add new fabrics as well as old favorites as they become available.  

If you are visiting the Pike Place Market in January, stop by because I will be having an "Overstock Sale".  These are all new pieces which are what is left of some of my fabrics which are no longer available.  You may find that zipper bag that goes with a satchel you bought in the same fabric, or one to mix and match at a great price!

Feedback from Joan M.

"Hello Sandra!
It has been way to long since I have had a new Sandra Satchel that I need to buy two. I use the many I have all the time and they look as good as the day I bought them. I have never received as many compliments on purses as I do with yours. Thank you and hope all is well."

Thanks for the feedback, Joan.  That's better than a long stem red rose on Valentine's Day.
