HAPPY NEW YEAR!
First of all, we want to send out a big THANK YOU for being such a loyal, supportive and generous community. We really couldn’t have survived 2016 without you.
Secondly, in the midst of the tumult of wrapping up the holidays, the endless snow days, and all the big changes that are in store, it seems necessary to slow down for a moment and take stock. In the spirit of creating a better future, we’d like to focus on the parts of 2016 that give us hope.
The number of locally made pieces of jewelry we sold in 2016. That’s 852 times you helped support artists and craftspeople living, working and dreaming in Portland.
The number of items that we sold last year. That’s 22,016 things recycled, 22,016 times we reduced our footprint, 22,016 times you shopped locally and supported our community.
The number of dollars we gave back to our community last year. With your help on Black Friday, we gave $750 (100% of our profits for the day) to the local charity Adelante Mujeres. Adelante Mujeres is a wonderful, Forest Grove-based charity that supports low-income Latina women and their families. On top of that, we also donated $150 to local schools throughout the year.
The number of uncertainties we have about the future. Just kidding. But really, if you’re wondering what’s in store, we can promise more jokes, silly Boomerangs (those videos we post on Instagram) and new outfits. More roller skates, looks of the day and homemade ‘Nasty Woman’ tee-shirts. And to start the new year on a positive note, we will be commemorating Inauguration Day with another Give Back Sale. On January 21, we’ll be donating 100% of our profits to a local charity. We’ll be in touch with all the details.
Thank you so much for supporting us through this year. Here’s to 2017 and all it has to offer!
