It is Monday and I have choosen Fairchild Street to plug.
She has been blogging since mid August, and the photos on her blog are glorious.
She sews, she DIY's and you should see what she can do with a plain old pine set of drawers!
So head on over and check out her work!
Also, today I went shopping at my local oppies and scored a few treasures ... I'll save them to share with you tomorrow!
While I was in one, a man from the local real estate agent came in with four bags of clothes his wife no longer wanted and they said no thank you because they were a size 6. He looked aghast and took them back out and started to take them back to his car. I said "stop, I know the other store would love them" and asked him to leave them out the front and I would take them around when I had finished my purchases, which I did, while they were wrapping mine in paper.
I'm glad that I took them around the corner, because they appreciated them. They also knew who the man was as they pay the rent for the shop to his agency. I went and told him that they really appreciated them and he was thankful. He said that he has a wife and three kids and he had been taking things to the first shop for some time and had never had that reaction before.
At least now he will know which shop to take the things to and know that the money will stay in the community. I am pretty sure if I hadn't intervened, he would have taken his things home and dumped them in the bin as the reaction he got was unexpected and he felt unappreciated.
If you work in a shop, please be mindful of your reaction to donations. You might be chopping your nose off despite your face.
A lot of the things he had donated were from Events and other stores and would have suited lots of teenage girls .....
