Maybe you have already guessed what I was gearing up to, with two shrines in quick succession… Well, the post title says it all: With the horrible war and the successive refugee crisis going on in Ukraine, I wondered how I could help (beyond my own donation a couple of weeks ago). The obvious answer is to sell some of my crafty stuff and donate the proceeds to refugee relief. I had already jumped into this idea and was going to just spring this onto t
he unsuspecting public you, when Kate and I launched our 5 item swap. And – „two idiots, same idea“, as we say in German. Or a little more benign in English: Great minds think alike! Kate suggested that we could sell the results of our 5 item projects for charity. When she heard I was already working on a charity sale, she immediately offered to create some of her much sought-after tags and ornaments and also include it in the sale.
So here we present you our quick, impromptu (created in the matter of one week) #UkRAineAid charity sale. For ease of transaction and quick turn-around, we are offering all items with fixed prices over on Etsy. You know the drill – you can purchase items there without being a registered member. Payment is possible by card or via Paypal. All items include free shipping. The items are clearly labelled as Charity Sale items – look for the #UkRAineAid hashtag. There is also a dedicated shop section in my Etsy store, also called #UkRAineAid. (Note: All other items on my Etsy store are not part of the charity sale!)
Please be assured that there is no pressure or obligation on anyone to buy. If we manage to sell all items, we‘ll be thrilled. If not, that‘s fine, too. But if you have a little money available, here is your chance to make a donation to a good cause and actually get a tangible item back for your generosity!
Below you will find a list of all items available. I will publish the listings before I post this blog post, so the store is open. There is no time-limit on the sale as such but the listings will disappear from Etsy as soon as the items are sold out. To avoid disappointment, please read the listings on Etsy before purchase as there will be information in there on sizing, materials etc.
On offer are:
Made by Kate, there are four different types of RAngels, all in one listing – Guy, Daniel Miller, purple suit RA and eggplant suit RA.
RA Tags – sorry, already sold out
More of the gorgeous bookmarks/tags made by Kate. 10 unique tags available in total.
RA Pocket Shrines – Sorry, already sold out
Apart from the two shrines already revealed here on the blog, I have created three further RAPS. There are photos in the listing, so you can see what other shrines I have created.
This is a small collection of fan t-shirts with different slogans. There is only one t-shirt per slogan. Three different sizes of t-shirts are available. They are clearly labelled in the listing.
Vintage-Style Junk Journals
The vintage look suits Mr Thornton and Astrov, so these two chaRActers make an appearance in these handmade junk journals. They all contain exactly the same items which you will be able to see in the little video on Etsy. Sizes and number of pages vary but are detailed in the listing. For ease of transaction they have all been priced the same. Check the listings for more information.
So, Kate and I would be delighted if you checked out the listings – and more so if you felt inclined to buy an item. Kate will ship her items from Germany, I will ship mine from Ireland. Once again, shipping (without tracking) is included, and we ship anywhere. Also, feel free to share this blog post or the individual links to the listings in your social media.
Please also check Kate’s blog for more information and bigger pictures of her tags and RAngels on offer! Thanks for reading and let‘s hope we can help Ukraine with a nice donation!
ETA: The flash sale is already flying. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE MADE A PURCHASE SO FAR. You rock! We are now nearing the fantastic milestone number of €500. And let me tell you, I was hopeful, but by no means sure we could get there. Thank you thank you thank you, so far! – Unfortunately that also means that some items are already sold out – like Kate‘s fabulous tags. At time of writing there are still a couple of her RAngels on offer, though 😉
