It’s the end of the fingerless glove binge.

Poster craft bake sale
On Saturday the library Friends had a craft & bake sale.

 

Craft sale looking toward front of library   Bake sale looking toward back of library
The bake sale was a huge success, the craft sale rather less.

I had eight pairs of fingerless gloves there but none sold.

 

This was a bit discouraging after the success of the gloves at the farmer's market, where I sold every single pair, ten in all, but it also means we have some inventory when the farmer's market starts again next summer.

Another Friend and I were on hand to take the money and bag people's purchases.

    I’m very disappointed in those library users!! Don’t they know that fingerless gloves are perfect to wear while reading?

    I suspect there are many people waking up this morning with non-buyer’s remorse, thinking, “If only I had bought several pairs of those wonderful fingerless gloves (especially the plaid/striped ones!) my hands would be warm and my Christmas shopping would be done!” Their loss.

    Frankly, I’m astonished. Beautiful gloves, and a chance to help the library? How could they pass that up?

    More fool them. I never knew how wonderful fingerless gloves were until I made a pair; now I wear them all the time! I really must make another pair so I can wash these. And mine are short-wristed; yours are good and long. I’d’ve bought a pair!
