I was in a thrift shop today and I saw a whole lot of vases on a shelf. Actually, looked like a lot more than they would be able to sell in a lifetime.
I told them about the Happy Flower Day Project and I asked if they would call me if they reached the point of “Please, no more vases.” The lady looked at me incredulously and said, “Why don’t you just buy them? They are only a dollar.”
Inside, I was thinking…..well since May 16th, we have delivered more than 3,000 bouquets. At that price, that would have been $3,000 and probably a little tax added on too. In the words of the seniors that I visit, I can just hear them exclaiming, “Gee willickers! Heavens above! Goodness gracious. Gracious me. Oh dear. Oh for heaven’s sake! So buying them is not in my budget….so if you have any vases that you no longer need, we sure would love to have them. I am committed to doing this until the end of October. Then, I will have to evaluate if it is feasible to continue. Thanks.
