Sand Point Closing Remarks From People

Hi Dennis,
I'm so sorry to hear about the closing! I absolutely loved the flea market and always found amazing things there. I've been telling everyone about it! Will there be one last market before you close on November 1st? Please let me know, I would love to come.


As much as I would like to do another show, I cannot.  We have lost a number of dealers and our buyers have dropped from a high of about 900 to less than 100 at the last two shows.  We blame both the economy and Seattle's DPD.

I sure like the words of support.


  1. Dennis & Anita . . . First of all, thanks for all the good times and fun selling at Sand Point Antiques & Design Market. Your show remains one of the most reliably successful shows we've done. Seattle never made it easy for us, did they?! Your market was laid back, easy to move into, consistently attended by a loyal group of antique lovers, and unique (as it's owner). You tried everything possible to fight a battle that--sadly--the powers that be didn't seem to be interested in supporting. That is their loss.

    Jim and I enjoyed working with you, Dennis . . . you gave us great freedom to extend our reach and were always so easy to work with. We appreciated the opportunity to work with you and get to know you better as a person. Your talents will no doubt launch you into a new--and hopefully easier--element of the industry that you so clearly love. We wish you and Anita all the best and look forward to seeing you at some of the Expo shows. Take care and stay in touch! Debi & Jim

  2. Oh no, I can't even believe it's actually closing.

  3. This sucks! My friend and I JUST learned of this sale and went to the September event. We found some great items and had planned on making it a semi regular excursion. It's hard to find good "junk" sales in Seattle (or so I have found). I hope you are able to find a way to open back up. You have our support.

  4. You are inspiring!!! I just found your blog, I like it because i was seeking for such type of info.
    I hope it benefits all one who land up here.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Is there anyone at the City of Seattle that we could email about this? I have been driving up to Seattle from Portland specifically to go to the Sandpoint market and am so sad to see it shut down. Please keep us posted if the market is reborn somewhere else......
