The Annual Bazarre
Our local Christian Women's Club does a fall sale of some kind every year to
raise money for missionaries who work in the field setting up new groups and also overseas. (see http://www.stonecroft.org)
This year we had folks clean out their houses and donate "stuff" - some stuff was great and some was well, not so great. It was work getting it all set up. But we did it. We ended up selling a lot and I'll be waiting to hear how much we made. It was a madhouse as always (nearly 100 ladies there). The Chairman tried to control by numbering tables and letting tables go by numbers but people still got massed around the better items.
Amy is standing, looking, studying. She ended up doing a silent auction (we had
pulled the best stuff for silent auctions) and won an afghan (which, of course *I* got to pay for but that's okay. It was a lovely afghan).
My mother got a piece of carnival glass and a red hat purse so she was happy.
Rita didn't shop as usual.
I got the best item there (imo) - a Noah's ark complete with two animals of many kinds. The grandchildren should like this...As long as Duane doesn't ask how much I paid for it all will be good.
I donated a stack of nicer looking children's books - they all sold.
The speaker was excellent as well. I pray the ladies who needed to hear her did so.
