Lakeside-Lester Park market celebrates first birthday

A year ago, the News Tribune told you about the startup of Nice Girls of the North Second Saturday Marketplace, a monthly sale held at Lakeside-Lester Park Community Center in Duluth.

The once-a-month market offers gifts, clothing and home décor, all handcrafted by a group of local artisans in a lively setting.

The sale marks its first anniversary Saturday with a celebration, including hourly gift-certificate drawings and birthday cake. Since it’s that time of the year, there also will be plenty of Halloween items for sale along with jewelry, pottery, stained glass, soaps, candles, bags, baby items, yarn and more.

The sale will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 106 N. 54th Ave. E.
