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!

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!
