I’m a sucker for a cause most of the time. If I’m going to be putting effort into an event it makes me feel good to do it with an intent rather than just profit. I know that might seem contradictory considering I run a business hoping to make a bit of a profit but I like to help people.
When some people I know decided to do a fair with the ALS as the beneficiary I got in contact with them to see what it was about. I was told I didn’t have to do anything new for it, the idea came together rather quickly and there was only a little bit of time so not much time to prep but I really don’t like just taking old store inventory for the main thing at any event. I add on things, like for the Clockwork Spiral I have some product that was already in the store that I put into vendors to donate but the main things were new. I try to do that when I can.
For the ALS event I decided to put together a set of skirts. Three of them, autumn hued or themed to celebrate one of my favorite times of the year. It really is. I think I was kinda sorta channeling the whole Edgar Allen Poe thing too. Nevermore and the ravens. I adore ravens. Dark things… so why not right? It wasn’t intentional. I was messing with making tree branches and leaves fluttering on the golden one…. then I was looking at it in Photoshop thinking…. well that’d be kinda cool in a deep red. But instead of leaves, skeletal branches and ravens. Ooohh.
So off I went playing around with that.
So we have three skirts. Autumn Gold with the leaves and a really interesting texture…. Raven Red, and Raven Black. I couldn’t not have one that is sort of black. The skirt comes in 7 sizes, 2 bonus types in there besides the 5 ‘normal’ ones.
100% donation to ALS during the event and only there, then I’ll decide what to do with them.
I think I put them at 150L each. You know sometimes I can’t even remember and have to look it up. *laughs*
The event runs from Sept. 26th – Oct. 10th
Hope to see you there.
