Fancy a funky new handbag?
Do you need some bunting for a party?
If the answer to either of those questions is yes, then head over to Little-Fish.co.uk and have a look.
A friend of mine, Billie, is selling handbags and bunting in a new venture. They are all handmade, and the quality is excellent.
The range Billie is doing at the moment is called For Amber. All proceeds, that’s everything except the cost of materials, goes toward Leukemia research. Amber recently lost her fight against leukemia.
Below is a couple of the designs available (click to enlarge)
All ‘Grown Up’ bags are £20 each. I will let you know on P+P if needed.
The bases are approx 12cm X 22cm and they are about 20 cm tall.
All except for the ‘Union Jack’ ones can be made in a kiddy size for £15.
They have a popper fastening, I am looking into using a zip in some of them. I have also done a velcro fastening for the kiddy bags.
Just let me know the design you want and (if applicable and I have stock), the colour for the lining and the button design you would like.
Go on, treat yourself or your lady.
I have a friend who, in his spare time, volunteers for the Samaritans. He sent me this email…
Samaritans have been nominated to be one of the supported charities for The Lawyer Awards. Two charities will be chosen and will be supported by the awards for three years raising over £150,000 for each charity.
The two charities are being voted on by a public vote via http://www.thelawyer.com/the-lawyer-awards-2011-charity-nominations/ It is a public vote so anyone can vote but you can only vote once. The voting closes on 22nd October.
The Lawyer Awards are held in June every year. There is no fee to enter, instead entries are asked to make a donation to the chosen charities. All donations are split between the two chosen charities. On average each charity will receive £50,000 per year for 3 years.
This is a public vote and could raise around £50,000 a year for Samaritans – if you can spare a few seconds, I would be really grateful if you could click on the link above and vote. This could be a massive boost for us financially Please vote!
There are many other worthwhile charities you can vote for as well, but it would be great if you could vote for the Samaritans.
