Auction #6

If you're looking for the "Give-Away" post, just scroll down to the next post.  

Up for auction is a custom bag/purse, hand-made by yours-truly.  I knew I wanted to make a bag, but I wasn't sure on the design.  As I was standing in line to get my fabric cut, I noticed the girl in front of me had a really cute purse.  I asked her if I could take a closer look, and I even snapped a photo with my phone.  So this is my rendition of "girl from the fabric store's purse".

It is made with a heavy decorators fabric, with contrasting prints.

On the opposite side of the pockets I stitched a little Africa with a heart for Uganda, to remind you of your sweet donation that helped give 2 precious children a family.

Auction Rules/Details

The auction begins NOW, and ends Thursday 9:00 pm PST. 
You place your bid by posting a comment in THIS POST with your bid amount. Please bid in increments of $5 - and higher. Let's start it out slow and give everyone a chance to bid. I LOVE my high-roller bidders, but I don't want people to start thinking it's not worth it to try! Whoever is the highest bid at the time the auction ends (9:00pm - thursday) is the winner.

Shipping costs are covered to anywhere in the 50 states.

The entire amount of the winning bid will go directly to the
(If you're just tuning in to this blog, the Berry's have been friends of ours for many many MANY years.  I so believe in what they are doing, that I can't help myself from helping them - even though they never asked!)

The winning bidder can give the donation via the "donate" button on the right side of the blog (if you don't care about a tax deduction).  Otherwise I will give you details of where to send the check.

Let's start the bidding at $15

Let the bidding begin!

Hey Amy,

I was wondering what the best way to contact you was. I want to know where I need to send the check for the bag. Also I see that you live in northern, Ca.... do you mean in the bay? Because I live up here too, I can always drive up and pick it up and give you the check then. Please let me know what works out best for you. My email address is guzi19@gmail.com. Thanks again for all your hard work in helping the Berry's. I love what your doing.
