Sale today

Well, it was a little disappointing I have to say.  I sold very little - only two bags, though lots of purses and phone cases.  Made about half what I would hope to - but that will still make a difference to the children in Utange.  I like to think of it in terms of children, and the amount I raised today should feed 25 children for a month, or 2 children for a year.  That makes it feel very worthwhile.
I was pleased with how the stall looked, and thought I would share some photos of that.

The main display of owl phone cases.  I was really pleased with this - it is a metal Christmas tree decoration from Ikea, and I think was just right for displaying the owls (and a few other things!)

  2. Thank you Tania.
    I did better than most of the people round me, I know - the problem was simply one of too few customers. Hopefully there will be more people at my next sale!

  5. Thanks Agy. Hopefully the rest of this year's sales will be more successful. I helped to organise another fundraising event this week and that one was very successful, making up for the disappointment of the sale!
