GETTING READY FOR OUR CHURCH BAZAAR "AGAIN"
Please note: This is a repeat post from last years Bazaar post. After reading it I couldn't improve on the information I wrote and frankly I am so busy getting ready for next weekend's sale, this is the best I can do this Pink Saturday. I will be taking lots of photos for this year's sale and will share it next week. I hope you will forgive me.
For the second year in a row volunteered to help with our annual bazaar sale for missions. I am in charge of the crafts division. You may think it is not such a big deal but you would be wrong. Every year our bazaar is held in the the Fair Grounds building and we make $25,000 or more for missions. ( 34,000. was made in 2013) In other words, this is a huge sale.
All year long we take donations for this bazaar and the craft division is mostly supplies for quilting, beading, woodworking, sewing. knitting, crocheting, quilling, painting and I could go on and on. For example we have 12 feet of fabric that is over a foot high. I am sharing the work I did last night sorting lace, ribbon, etc. until midnight while I watcbed TV. I think you might get a kick out of the following photos.
My couch. Yikes!
A giant box of lace , lace, lace.
Ribbon, knitting and crochet needles. I do not know the difference. Oh, and more lace too.
I picked out some pink for you.
Another box of lace.
My husband thought it would be funny to take this photo. I think it is pretty funny myself. Especially that silly look on my face.
Picture this as being a tiny part of the 15 tables of stuff I have to sort. I have worked the last five days until noon at the fair ground each day. (no air-conditioning) Even if you want to keep going, they turn out the lights and lock the doors. After sorting all these tables of stuff (over 100 boxes and giant bags), I then have to price it all. I do have help with four volunteers who are "old" like me. I am absolutely sure we will get it all done by the time next Saturday rolls around. The day of "THE SALE" Think of this so called bazaar as a giant flea market.
I forgot to mention the four giant boxes of all kinds of baskets and endless bags of silk flowers, wreaths and garlands. These are CRAFTS! Not!. HA!
Happy Pink Saturday,
Blessings and love,
