Gary's Story about Punked Up Nuns:

On their way driving home from a conference on clean living and the modern woman, Mother Superior and a few of her sisters decided to take a shortcut through a Reservation and save the Pagan babies before heading back to Seattle.

Unfortunately the Reservation they chose to convert was the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

Betsy's Story About Jar Grandma:

My grandma lived her entire life never knowing she had a sister. But she did, her sister was just buried deep within her. Upon her death, her small, half-formed twin sister was found! Nestled, justly, very close to her heart.

Betsy Trades me Jar Grandma for Teeny Tiny Landscape Painted on a Pill

Two women, one dressed liked a lesbian farmer

Some of you - those who pay close attention and have magical psychic powers - may remember Betsy as the creator of the only skirt in existance to have caused a fight at the Punk Rock Flea Market.

Summary: My friend Sara bought a skirt for $5 that should have been mine and I got mad.

Read Sara's side of the story as well as my side ( I refer to my side as "The Truth").

Laura Trades Me Super Bright Kisses for Jazz Singer Who Tried to Eat Eric's Girlfriend

Laura and Rosalie doin' a Sauce trade

I love the fact that Laura chose the Jazz singer painting as what she wanted for Super Bright Kisses.

To my eye -- they're pretty similar. Same general color scheme. Big lips.

Marlow Trades me Evil Looking Doll Lamp for Vintage Cigarette Coupons

Marlow and JoDavid came to the studio to see Michael Frank's (the Curator-in-Chief of The Museum of Bad Art) presentation on the guildelines MOBA uses to select the paintings for their permanent collection.

Rebecca Trades Me Space Alien in Ship for Box of Lost Memories

My ever-annoying interview questions.

At least I actually thought of the interview questions this time and didn't try and make the person trading with me write their own weird questions and then answer them. I did that to Nik. Ha!

Q. Do you like sandwiches? If yes, what's your favorite kind?
A. I absolutely loved grilled sandwiches and I am a sandwich freak.

Rhiannon is one of our very good friends who we have grown so old with that we actually get together and play Bridge until 3am every Saturday night.

Woooooooo-hot-damn-party-people!

DOUBLE! REDOUBLE!

The fun never ends. Until one of the women cries or someone has to talk about Bridge night in couple counseling. Then, it's time to go home.

Rhiannon was kind enough to answer my odd and somewhat reduntant interview questions:

Q. Do you like cats?

Brit Trades me Single Parent Paper Bag Skeleton Puppet for A Steampunk Box to Put Things In

Brit and I go way back. We used to work together at Intiman Theatre. She designed the bARTer Sauce logo.

We've consumed beers at the same time together. She's the one who got Colin's unfortunate paper mache hedgehog and finally ripped it open to find the surprise inside.

And once, just once, I convinced her to get on stage at a Laffhole show and tell me a story about an item she wanted to trade to bARTer Sauce.

Sara Trades Me "Two Red Screamers" for "Mona Didn't Need Bling"

Sara and Rosalie - the skirt controversy finally over.

Sara showed up at the May First Thursday art walk with a surprise trade for me.

Seeing her brought back all kinds of memories. Let me tell you about the last time I saw Sara:

Two Red Screamers

Sara felt overwhelmed at the prospect of telling me a story so I made her answer these interview questions instead.

Basically, I tricked her because now she has to tell me a bunch of little stories. Sucker! (whispers...give me that damn skirt)

Q. You live in a cool building. Wanna tell me a little about it?
