Frugal Fair Revisited

On April 30, 2011 the Women at Grace had a fun day with a variety of "frugal" activities. The day began with a Fashion Show, with women wearing outfits purchased at thrift shops, consignment stores and garage sales. There were two awards presented for People's Choice and Judges' Choice. The winners are pictured above.

The WINGS Boutique was a popular activity. Everyone received five tickets to select "free clothing" which was attractively organized. Some women were even seen wearing their "new" clothing to church the next day!

Kudos go to our kitchen crew. The Fair Food selections included mini-corn dogs, pretzels with cheese, walking tacos, and caramel corn.

The Booth Displays shared the expertise of our Grace Women. There was much to learn about frugal living, and everyone left with new ideas to try. Listed below are the booths. Several of the handouts are available online.
