Happy June, everybody! We’re getting close to the first day of summer, and we can’t be more ready. June’s birthstone is pearl, which also makes it a favourite of ours.
To celebrate the coming season, we’re giving back. For the month of June, we will be donating 10% of sales on Drakestail’s Etsy shop, at local shows, and at Winnipeg’s Exchange Uporium, to the Canadian Cancer Society. Cancer has touched too many lives, and we’re excited to do our part by helping to fund research and support services.
So pick up something pretty for the summer, and feel great about doing it! Help us to help end cancer.
Robyn and I have always been very grateful for all the support people have shown us over the years, since we started this little project called Drakestail Jewellery. We feel it’s important to pay it forward in every way possible.
When I came to Winnipeg in September for The Foxy Shoppe‘s Fall launch event, I met a very beautiful soul named Kristine. She welcomed me to this city very warmly. She has supported Drakestail Jewellery’s vintage line, not only by purchasing two sets but by telling everyone where she got them, who makes them, etc. She’s been a true gem. She told me her work was hosting an event in November to raise funds for cancer research, and I offered a set of our vintage-inspired jewellery as a prize donation for the event.
The 2nd annual Cut for the Cure is a fundraising event supporting the Canadian Cancer Society. The Cut for the Cure will be held in The Shops of Winnipeg Square, centre court, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Wednesday November 27th, 2013. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. In addition to the cut-a-thon, they are selling tickets for a variety of exciting prizes ($5.00 for 1 ticket, or an arm’s length for $20). There will also be live music provided by musical duo Luke & Murray. This great event is organized by 360 Hair & Nails, a full service Hair and Nail Salon located below Portage Ave. and Main Street in The Shops of Winnipeg Square.
If you are in the Winnipeg area, I urge you to make your way down to Winnipeg Square on Wednesday this week!
