When Faye came into the shop carrying a small basket we asked her what was in it. We were a bit nosy, but glad we were. Inside were these beautifully created knitted angels.
Our gentle probing led us to discover that they were being produced for a dog charity called PAW which is based in Spain. It rescues and rehomes dogs which are left as strays following a life of abuse. Faye spends several months in Spain and sells the angels in shops over there.
We asked if we might sell some because we had a spare display tree and it wasn’t needed for three weeks. Posting them on FB and Instagram led to rapid sales and also orders being placed. Within the three weeks we raised £550 from the shop sales alone. After the three weeks, the angels were moved to Jolies Fleurs until Faye went back to Spain on 26th October. She is going to keep us posted while she is away.
Many thanks to all those who purchased an angel and supported this brilliant cause.
