Rummage Sale Update: the pom-pom

Our Rummage sale had made $1400 as of Sunday morning, and there were still some contributions to be made. Thanks to everyone! All this money will be sent to Jamaica to help Friends ministry there, though we haven't settled on details of how the money will assigned yet.

I love doing this sale every year. We see a lot of donated items walk out the door, and people give us a free-will donation based on the whole of what they want. It's so much more effective than trying to price individual items, we see more items walk out the door, and we end up making more money for the church's missions! Everyone wins.

I didn't get to help as much as I probably should have, but I did spend some time there on Saturday helping people load up items, sorting and folding, and the like. I also found some must-have items for myself: two board games, an over-the-door hanging rack, an adorable zip-up sweater, some picture frames, and the most exciting of all... a single gold pom-pom!

This pom-pom is awesome. It's fluffy and gold, and will be loved and revered for the next *7* years as I cheer in the stands for lovely L and darling C at every home game of probably every sport offered at our high school. I debuted it at the football game on Saturday after the rummage sale, and I know it will be making many, many more appearances.

I'd like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the child (or her mother) who donated that pom-pom. You made my day.
