Baubles, Beads, and Bigger is Better

Not long ago we had a fund raiser for the  special education department at my school.  We collected jewelry that folks no longer loved or wore and sold it the week before Mother's Day.  Now, let me tell you a little about our customers.  They are the sweetest, cutest, most excited shoppers out there and they're all ages four to eleven.

Each day my team would set out tables with a vast assortment of jewelry all laid out, all priced between $1 and $4.  When the school bell rang we were MOBBED!  These bright-eyed kiddos looked over everything, grabbing items they were thinking about, setting aside rejects, and finally finding that simply perfect bauble for mom.  And my goodness, some of those baubles were BIG!

I always find myself wishing I could have a hidden camera planted so I could see all these lovely ladies happily wearing the ginormous pink-beaded earrings and the way-too-long feathered necklaces as their loving children gazed at them with pride in their eyes.

Ah, sweet love....

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
