Maintaining up to 40 dogs can be financially draining. When emergency expenses like medical bills crop up, more often than not, we have no choice but to turn to you, our dearest friends, to help prop us up. That's why we'll never be Gentle Paws per se. We'll always be Gentle Paws and Friends or GPF for short!
Whenever we have an opportunity to raise funds for ourselves, we grab it. This weekend, there is one such chance. Come this Saturday and Sunday (the 18th and 19th of September respectively), GPF will be setting up our very own booth at Tampines Flea Market. We'll be selling a range of items - from clothes to donated story books to dog accessories such as collars and leashes. In short, we'll be selling whatever we manage to set our hands on.
We have no clue how the turn out will be or if we will be successful. Regardless, we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Clara and family for raising the idea of a booth to us and offering us the chance to hawk our wares. Also, we would like to thank online blogshop MissyPixie for kindly donating some of their pretty clothes to us to sell. Do check out their website at http://missypixie.livejournal.com/ but don't get so absorbed in their lovely items that you forget to drop by our booth!
The location is a very convenient one. Do plan a visit to Tampines Mall, Century Square or Tampines One over the weekend. You can catch a movie, do some grocery shopping or have dinner. And to wrap up a cosy weekend, you can browse through the flea market and drop by our booth! We need all the support we can get! Wish us luck!
