Featured Auction Contributer: Corrina Dea of The Unlimited Stitch

Calling all superheros!  Today’s featured auction contributor is Corrina Dea from The Unlimited Stitch in Morton, IL.  Corrina has donated this awesome set for the superhero in your life!  Thanks, Unlimited Stitch!

Here’s what she says about her superhero sets, “These fun reversible cape and mask sets will make any little guy or girl feel like a super hero!  Unlike traditional capes, I designed my capes to be worn on your child’s shoulders secured with elastic straps for a comfortable fit and hours of worry-free play time.  A standard cape comes with a coordinating mask and adorned with a lightening bolt.”  This cape below fits well on children 40″ or taller (4-7 years old).

This set retails at $18.

Featured Auction Contributors: More than Rubies & Innisms

Today’s featured auction contributors are 2 ladies who have approached me (separately) since the Selah’s Sale page was started on Facebook, wanting to donate something.  I do not know either personally, but I am impressed and humbled by their hearts!  🙂

The following has been donated by Shealyn Ramirez; she does lovely etched work on glass, and so much more.  Her Facebook page, More Than Rubies, has many unique items for sale!  For the auction, she has donated this set of glass etched votives that she created.  The retail value of these is $12.  Thank you, Shealyn!

Featured Auction Contributor: Brandi Butler with Scentsy-2 baskets

Brandi has provided 2 lovely baskets for our auction!  These smell wonderful and are super cute.  The first basket contains a Scentsy buddy (baby Patch the dog) and a Scentsy pack (Coconut Lemongrass scent).  Its retail value is $27.  (Judah received a Scentsy buddy lamb when he was a baby and he still sleeps with “Baby” every day)!  The scent pack in the buddy is not at all overwhelming for little ones.

Image

The second basket contains a beautiful, full size warmer and 2 Scentsy bars (scents are Raspberry Vanilla and Sugar).  These bars last far longer than your typical candle, smell better and are much safer for homes with little hands.  This basket’s retail value is $45.

Thank you, Brandi, for helping place kids in forever families!  We appreciate you!

Featured Auction Contributor: Jessica Robertson of Salon Trio

It wasn’t until I met Jessica in 2007 that I had ever returned to the same stylist more than once.  Jessica has been my go to hair girl for 7 years now!  In fact, since we moved, I still drive back to Logan County to have her do my hair.  When you find a great stylist, you keep her!  Jessica is not only a fabulous hair stylist, but a lovely friend.  For the auction, she has donated the following, valued at $53:  haircut and wax & an awesome Matrix Total Results Luminous Hair product set (shampoo, conditioner and bonus Total Miracle) for blonde hair.  Thank you Jessica, for your ability to transform my hair for the better part of a decade, and for your heart for kids!  ❤

Featured Auction Contributor: Ashley Wade with 31

I am convinced that if your family is pursuing an adoption, everyone needs and deserves, an Ashley.  I cannot even begin to explain how helpful this girl is!  From the very beginning, Ashley has helped or been an instrumental part in all things fundraising and adoption related.  Literally, there hasn’t been a single event that she hasn’t helped me with (in most cases, A LOT of help)!  In true fashion, she has donated 2 sets of things, PLUS a $10 gift certificate, for our auction!  (Additionally, she is helping me tremendously behind the scenes virtually with the event page on Facebook.  Otherwise, I would have probably broken my computer, Facebook and likely taken down the entire internet in tech frustration :)).  Ashley deserves to be paid in gold bars, or some equally valuable sentiment.

The first 31 set is this turquoise Quilted Chevron Chillicious Thermal, 14 count 31 cards for a variety of occasions, & 31 print tumbler.  Super cute!  Brand new!  Retail value:  $44

Image

The second item is this awesome large utility tote in navy wave.  Practical and stylish!  Brand new!  Retail value:  $35

$10 gift certificate not pictured!

Finally, Ashley (and Brent!) are the people behind our kickball tournament on July 12!  Y’all know you want to play some kickball!  We’re still looking for dedicated teams!  🙂  Kickball event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1417880365156424/?ref=br_tf
