Happy Valentines Day
The store Catching Fireflies collects Valentines Day cards to give out to the kids in the hospital at Childrens Hospital. I heard about this and decided I should participate. I made 5 cards to donate to the cause. I planned on taking the cards on February 12th, which was their last day of collection. The store in Rochester, which is the closest one to me , is closed on Sundays so it wasn't open that day! So my husband and I drove out to Berkley to take the cards to their other store. My bag fell open when I got out of the card and one fell in the snow! It was fine but a little soggy. Since we drove all that way I wanted to stop at their other store Yellow Door. It is an artists market. I was really impressed with how well displayed the merchandise was and how bright and clean it was. They rent out space to artists by three, six and twelve month slots. It could be a great opportunity to sell artwork, jewelery, purses, clothes, and other handmade items. Check it out if you are in the area.
