Picture this: an industrious little fairy who works hard all year and saves enough to go on a fun new adventure during the boring winter months. Ah look! There she is! Say Hi.
Now this little fairy is facing a tough decision. Because this winter there are TWO wonderful once in a lifetime adventures to go on. We talked about them a little in the previous post. In September Aeri will be traveling across Russia with her friend Sandra on the Trans-Siberian Railway. And then in November she will be traveling to Sicily on a tri-generational adventure with her mother and her grandmother. Of course she wants to go on both trips, she just needs to find enough money to do so! But she’s not worried…
This is what she has to say:
“Shoes!! I has them. By the end of 2009, my roommate and I had something close to 200 pairs of shoes between us. When it was time to move out, I whittled my personal collection down to about 40 pairs, and gave the rest to friends, consignment shops, and Good Will. The other lucky winners went into a big, a BIG, box and have been quietly tucked away in the back of a closet at my mom’s house, awaiting the day that I would land some nice 9 – 5 in a professional yet trendy office somewhere and move into my own apartment, thus creating a space to display them and a place to wear them.
But that doesn’t seem to be part of the game plan in the near future, so away in their box they do sit. What has been in the game plan has been lots of travel to amazing places. The trend has been to work all year and then take the winter to go somewhere new. But it seems that this winter there are TWO once in a life time trips presenting themselves, and a traveling gypsy artist can only squirrel away so much extra funding in 8 months. So, to finance this newest passion, I’m parting with an old one. I’m selling all these shoes!! If you see a pair you like, just comment with a price and the shoe description. First come first serve, this isn’t going to be an auction style thing. Just please begin all donations at $5, to account for shipping (so if you offer $17 for a pair of shoes, thats $5 for the USPS and $12 for my travel fund).”
So please take a look at these shoes! Pass this on to friend and family. Shout it out in the streets. I love shoes, but they should have a good home with feet that wear them.
They are also posted on Facebook if you’d prefer to see them in an album, follow this link.
Without further ado…The Shoes:
So that’s all of ’em. What do you think? I hope you’ve seen something you just can’t live without! And don’t forget to tell all your friends about this great opportunity!!!
Oh right, and payment. All donations can be sent to my paypal account, using the email firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or I’ll be setting up a donations widget right on the blog here.
Also, all the shoes will be shipped out on June 21st, which is the next time I’ll be home to play with them.
