YARD SALE TREASURE


 So, I'm loving the continual realizations of how Be Savvy Chic can work to benefit adoptions in an on-going, cumulative way. This weekend the Kaiser's had a yard sale to hopefully raise the last money they need to bring sweet Alex home.

I was able to purchase 35 items to resell. I paid $2 apiece for the items, and thanks to a generous matching donor, that generated $140 for the Kaiser's adoption. I'm now going to try to sell the clothes, with 10% of every sale going towards the N&K adoption.

If the items sell for an average of $5 apiece, 50% of the sale price of each item will have benefited adoptions!

I found this treasure digging at the Kaiser's yard sale! Dolce & Gabbana White V-neck 3/4 Sleeve Sweater. According to several websites, this would probably retail for $675. There is no size tag, but it is probably XS.

It can be yours! Just comment on this blog post  the price you are willing to pay, and the highest bid will win! 100% of the sale price will go to the Kaiser's adoption. http://www.helpbringalexhome.com/
I have this posted on Facebook as well, so I will update the blog comments with any bids posted on Facebook. 

 I will keep the bidding open until Friday, March 15 at midnight.

But of course, this brand name sweater was NOT the best treasure I found digging at the Kaiser's yard sale.  Meeting two joy-filled people in the midst of this insane miracle in which God has called them to participate, surrounded by loving friends and supporters, and seeing the small ways we all can participate in bringing this miracle and future miracles to fruition, that's the TRUE treasure I found at this yard sale. And that treasure can't be ripped, stained, or out-grown!
