Greatest visual of the week?...Our wonderful owner Lee and Debra (a tenured glassybaby muse and friend) driving a Uhaul truck, on a bead to San Francisco...straight to a Log Cabin in the Presidio. (I love that sentence.) This is signature glassybaby essence:
- driving acumen
- merriment making
- fund raising
We filled the Uhaul with 4,000 glassybaby (we think.) The counting became esoteric at some point. Robin, one of our glassblowers, and Celia, sales queen, created a complex system, almost macrame, of rope to hold down the precious cache of glassybaby. My simile would be Spiderman casting a rope web over all of the glassybaby...a web never to be replicated I am sure.
The San Francisco effort is a marvelous one. We are hosting a quasi party/fund raiser for two amazing nonprofit organizations:
- The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (www.foodallergy.org)
- The Andre Sobel River of Life Foundation (www.andreriveroflife.org)
Check out their websites...such worthy causes. We will donate $4.00 from every single glassybaby sold in San Francisco.
End note...we giggled over this...Jacqueline (outside sales/ team glassybaby member) received an earnest inquiry today. A customer's daughter would like to be a part of the kid contest...on the kid blog... which is for kids under 13...winner to be announced November 12th. Here was the serious question: "My daughter turns 13 in November...is she still eligible to partake in the contest?" A resounding "yes"...especially since this entry would mark the first and only that we have received. Wonderful.
Until Next Time, Nicola
