    Hi all,
    The sale went well 🙂 The weather was great and it was busy all day 🙂 We did well with Women in Hebron crafts, yard signs, and Visit Palestine posters beautifully matted. Playgrounds for Palestine’s sales were successful also, and several people ordered online when we ran out of some items. There was zero negativity and our hosts say we can do a repeat next year.
    The Cap Times listed it in their “What To Do on the Weekend“ section and a lot of people said they saw it on Facebook and the neighborhood site Next Door. Our hosts put out signs on the corners and I think that helped.
    It was a good long day 🙂 Thanks all who helped !!
