In these days of on-line shopping, I love the fact that we are getting donations for our silent auction from all over the place, including one of my favourite little Toronto shops, Even and Odd. I bought a pair of pug bookends there (online) as a closing gift for clients who own a pug. The bookends were absolutely adorable and very reasonably priced. Carmen and Winnie are terrific at customer service; I was super-impressed. And my clients loved the gift.
The pug bookends, I’m sorry to say, are no longer in production but Even and Odd has donated this really cute dog pillow/stuffed toy for our silent auction. It’s about 5″ wide by 18″ tall, and seriously, how cute is that?
Starting next week, I’ll be creating a page that has all of our donated items on it so that you can keep track of the things you’ll want to bid on at our silent auction, so stay tuned! And meanwhile, wherever you live, check out Even and Odd’s website. They always have unique and interesting vintage items and gifts, and the customer service is unbeatable.
The Homes with Woofs! fundraiser will be held sometime in mid-June in Ottawa, date and venue TBD. We’ll be auctioning off designer doghouses and holding a silent auction, proceeds to Ottawa Humane Society. All donors will receive tax receipts. If you can help out, give us a call! ~ Peggy
