Items for sale will be in the display cabinet in the Fellowship Hall after December. The cabinet will be unlocked during coffee hour so please take a peek at all the beautiful items we have been sent. I will be changing the display often so keep checking. If you find something you would like to purchase, I am usually down enjoying a cup of coffee.
Throughout the year I will be looking for opportunities to show off this beautiful and unique collection, so if you hear of a place having a sale please contact me with the information.
All monies go to a better future and clean water for the people in South Africa.
