Baubles and BedsThursday, August 20, 2015
What the heck is Baubles and Beds you might ask? Someone actually asked me if was something risqué. Quite the contrary, Baubles and Beds is the name I thought up for an accessory swap with a mission...to raise money to buy beds for local children in need (through the efforts of Project Home Again).
Our amazing volunteers worked their booties off to set up for the event, but things got interrupted quickly by an unwanted guest. Mr. Bat arrived in style (no pun intended). He flew high and low, confused and just wanting OUT. I can't blame him...he was in a room-full of handbag crazed women. We all dove for cover. I was lucky enough to hide behind glass doors but poor Kim ducked under the table, trapped and frightened out of her mind. In this video, you can hear me saying "poor baby, he's scared"...I sound brave, but remember I was safe. Our hero was the maintenance guy who scooped up the little critter and took him outside to safety. I was glad our bat friend was okay, but also glad he was gone.
At 6:30 droves of women surged into Good Day and we were ready for them.! The cafe had been transformed into a boutique of sorts, with items beautifully displayed in their deligated "departments.
Every woman for herself!
