Lisa Souers of Lisa Souers Designs wants everyone to know it doesn’t rain all the time in Yakima, Wash. The jewelry artist is a newbie vendor. Some fun facts:
An avid junker: “I end up in the filty garages fighting for the industrial, metal, scrappy pieces with the best of the men folk.”
Loves: Waking up super early.
Hates: Being second in line at estate sales.
Her other day job: Clinical mental health therapist.
Bringing to the Bonanza: Soldered metal and paper pieces.
Best junking find: A pre-WWII pair of Red Line Levi’s, never worn, for $5 bucks. Sold to a dealer for $1,800 who sold them to a dealer in Japan for $3,200. Found them in a “hoarder” estate sale “that I dug in for eight straight hours with a flashlight as there wasn’t any power.”
No one would guess: I can be quite shy and reserved.
Can’t work without: Sharpie and roll of masking tape for marking items “sold.”
With more than 130 fabulous vendors, we expect a lot of “sold” stickers before the Bonanza ends!
