First in Line Contest Winners

Candi & Natalie’s glassybaby seconds sale experience

continue reading

As you may remember, we recently welcomed our First in Line Contest winners, Natalie and Candi, to our biannual glassybaby seconds sale on Jan. 26.  It was so wonderful to finally meet them both, as they took their places at the front of the line, and they were even more charming in person than in their video entry.  Lucky for us, the two sisters took several photos of their journey and graciously shared them with us, along with a synopsis of their experience.  Natalie wrote:

“Thank you SOOOO much! We had such a fantastic time. It still seems too good to be true. A whole weekend with my sister AND glassybaby, what could ever be better than that??? It was so great to meet you and Lee, all the wonderful people at glassybaby! That few minutes before the sale officially opened when Candi and I had a private seconds sale all to ourselves will stay as a sweet place in my memory forever and ever…I’m pretty sure we packed as much fun as we possibly could have into one super duper weekend! No regrets here! And finally, here are the four glassybaby I will be adding to my personal collection. It was love as first sight with each of them, but then, how could it not be?”

Thank you, Natalie and Candi, for joining us.  We hope to see you again soon!

Throughout this week, we’ve been in touch with our Seconds Sale First in Line Contest winners, Natalie and Candi.  We’ve all been anticipating their arrival and were thrilled when they sent us a few pictures of their packing efforts.  Although we’re beyond excited to have them both here so soon, we can’t help but wish that Natalie would bring along her adorable Dachshund puppy, Uno, to come play with all the glassybaby dogs!

We’re hoping to receive some more amazing photos of Natalie and Candi on their glassybaby journey.  And we’ll be sure to snap some of our own this weekend as they take their place, first in line, at the seconds sale on Saturday at 8 a.m.  Who knows?  Maybe we ‘ll even convince them to perform an impromptu glassybaby concert.  Hope to see you there!

We have a winner!  Or shall I say two?  Lee has selected two sisters, Candi Criddle and Natalie Decker, from South Jordan, Utah, to be first in line at the seconds sale when doors open this upcoming Saturday, Jan. 26, at 8 a.m. and we couldn’t be more excited to have them.  We were all blown away by their entry and I guarantee you will be too.  Who would have thought to use glassybaby in such an unconventional way?  These sisters gave us all a little holiday concert with their renditions of “Joy to the World,” “Ode to Joy” and “Doh a Deer,” using glassybaby as their instrument.  I highly suggest you check it out.

Not only did they provide us with an entertaining video, but they shared their love for glassybaby in a brief written entry and it sure hit a chord with us. In their entry, Candi wrote, “I’ve always been fascinated by the way things sound.  It was only a matter of time before I tapped my glassybaby and arranged them by pitch.”   After Natalie heard about the Seconds Sale First in Line Contest, she called her sister and said, “You know what we have to do.”

As original residents of Washington, these sisters are familiar with our gloomy weather and dreary winter days.  “Sometimes I remember where I came from, where people make the most beautiful lights to shine on days when the sun does not,” Candi wrote.  Well, we’re beyond happy to help shine a light on those dark days.

Candi and Natalie will be flown in on Friday, Jan. 25, and will be staying at the Pan Pacific Hotel in downtown Seattle.  Upon learning that they won the contest, Candi exclaimed, via email, “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!! We’re just so thrilled! I guess it’s finally paying off that Nat and I are such nerds.”  Meanwhile, Natalie wrote, “Yay, yay and YAY!  Candi and I were at a fitness class when we got your email and after screaming and hugging and making complete fools of ourselves, we totally left early.  So great!”

We loved their entry, we loved their reaction and we can’t wait to meet them both this Saturday at the glassybaby seconds sale in Madrona.  Hope to see you all there!


Seconds Sale First in Line Contest

With just over a week until our seconds sale, I want you all to know about our Seconds Sale First in Line Contest before it’s too late.  Our seconds sale is known for drawing a line of people that wraps around the block and beyond.  We know it’s not ideal to camp out in front of our store, especially at this time of year, in order to be first in line, so we’ve come up with a solution.

The Seconds Sale First in Line Contest will grant one winner and a friend two places at the front of the line before doors open at 8 a.m.  Along with the joy of being first in line, we will fly you out here from any of the lower 48 states and provide a two-night stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel.

In order for you to win this contest, we want to hear from you!  In 100 words or less, please explain why you deserve to win.  Do you have a special memory, story or simply a love for glassybaby?  Tell us about it.  Photos and videos are encouraged too.  Hurry up though!  The last day to submit an entry is tomorrow, Jan. 18.  The winner will be chosen by our founder, Lee Rhodes, and will be announced on Monday.  We can’t wait to hear from you!



Mark your calendars

the glassybaby seconds sale is January 26th!

The biannual glassybaby seconds sale is fast approaching. Are you ready? With over 7,000 seconds, we are eager for your arrival. So mark your calendars because January 26 will be here faster than you know it.

Our seconds sale is an event in which we sell the products that didn’t quite make it to the finish line in the race to becoming a glassybaby. These votive holders might be a little too small, a little too large, have a shape that is uncharacteristic of a glassybaby or a number of other minor imperfections. We greatly value the individuality and uniqueness of each glassybaby, but we want to ensure that we’re putting our best product onto the shelves for our customers.

Lucky for you, all of these seconds need homes and they come at a reduced price! As I mentioned before, most of our seconds have just a little something about them that prevented them from becoming glassybaby. However, there are some crazy-looking seconds; I even spotted a transparent blue one with hot pink lines running all around it. Whatever you’re looking for, I’m sure we’ve got it.

Doors open at 8 a.m., but I suggest you arrive much, much earlier to beat the crowd.

Hope to see you there!
