As I have mentioned, moving my dog/best-friend-ever Kenzo to New Zealand is costing me a small fortune. A friend suggested I hold a "jewelry party" to try and make some more sales/fundraise. Just the thought of it made me uncomfortable -- inviting my friends over to try and get them to part with their hard-earned cash? I shuddered at the thought of them feeling obligated to buy something. Still, with the next round of vet visits and payment to the pet exporters looming, I decided to suck it up and do it.
I put it up as a private event on Facebook and invited about 20 women I know. Then, the same friend (she's full of good ideas) suggested I join forces with another friend of hers that sells purses and gifts through the 31 Gifts line. I also thought of Norma from the Flying Lessons e-course who I met on the weekend, who had mentioned that she had some stock of her awesome organic kids apparel that she wanted to shift.
So it became an event! It's now going to be held at a business location in Woodland Hills, next Wednesday July 28th at 6.30pm. There will be wine and appetizers, yum :) If you're in the L.A. area and available, we'd love to see you! Please check out the event page on Facebook and RSVP.
