Auction wrap up
Two paintings went up for auction as planned on Thursday night - ahead of the Cancer Society's annual Daffodil Day fundraiser.
In total, across Facebook and Instagram, we raised $130, with thanks to the 2 successful and generous bidders, the under-bidders who drove the price (donation) up and the wider team that responded to the call to share and spread the word.
Truly a team effort.
The donations will be made directly to the Cancer Society in the next few days and the paintings will be on their way to their new homes.
There's nothing about spring weather in Southland that negates the need for a scarf - and these two scarves will do their new owners good service well through the season.
Scarves were a new offering for The Penny Drops this year and were very popular.
Somewhat surprisingly, these two remained in the webshop, where they occupied space I have in mind for other things.
bribed enticed you with an offer of free earrings to go with each scarf, and the offer was duly accepted - I'm sorry that there were only 2 scarves left as I know there were a few disappointed potential customers.
Behind the scenes
As an aside, here was the set up for the earring shot... all is not always as it seems in the world of product photography.
