Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts - Our Saturday Market has officially moved indoors for the next six weeks so we are warm and cozy in our booth and surrounded by the smells of delicious food, the rythms of ecclectic music and the eyes are dazzled by the colors, patterns and beauty of the wares all of these incredible artists create! The customers are a joy to engage with and as always they are joyful and inspired. How very fortunate we are. As we say, "only in Eugene" and it's true!
We have been so busy the last six weeks with store orders for baby rattles and spirit shakers, that it's really nice to have a couple days off to warm up and relax. We are adding another baby store in a week when we finish their order. We are thrilled to welcome Classic Kids in Grants Pass, Oregon to our list of stores who carry our baby rattles. If you live in the area, please visit their store and check out our rattles!
We are also excited to announce that we are in the process of searching for an eco-friendly mailer to ship our orders through the post. We have found a couple of options and goal is to use a recycled material that does not contain plastic. We will be able to save a lot of money and reduce our ecological footprint. And that is what it is all about for us!!! If you have any input on mailer products you've found, we would love to hear from you. Thanks for visiting us here and we wish you a blessed day filled with joy.
Take care, be good & kind, and don't forget to laugh,
Ellie Efforts (aka Heather)
