Real Change Vendor James Sanderson died in December. One of his customers offered this remembrance:
I met James Sanderson in 2012. I was working in downtown Bellevue at the time and he was selling Real Change across from the transit center. I would pass him when I crossed the street to get to my building. I can still see him now with his black-rimmed glasses, signature shorts and the hand-made sign proclaiming “Real Change.” James introduced me to the paper, and I became a fan — a customer first and then a friend.
