Donating to the tag sale
Thursday, September 24, 2020
With no Fall Festival at the village we are looking at all different ways to keep the village open and pay the bills. The Fall Festival is the biggest fund raising event of the year. This year we are having a tag sale. Closets at the village have been cleaned out. Storage garages. Attics. Everything that we had time to sort through has been sorted and stuff that is many time duplicates are on the tag sale (no one needs 30 sad irons!) as well as items that we have no record of receiving.
The loom house did its part. I never thought I would say this but we have too many pieces of equipment so one spinning wheel is on the tag sale. The band loom is on the tag sale. An umbrella swift (used to hold a skein of yarn while winding into a ball) was found in a storage area. I cleaned and repaired it for the sale.
In addition I pulled yarn and woven/knitted items that I use for display (and hoped for sales) in the loom house and created this area.
I have a list of everything in the display. Whatever sells I will write up as a donation to the village. It will, I hope, move items along and give me more space to create new things.
Sorry about the pictures. Spark is being a little weird still!
