Bargain Blessing Baskets

If you're a fan of Blessing Baskets (quick primer for the uninitiated: local woman keeps tokens of support during a rough time in a basket in her home, calling it her "Blessing Basket," and eventually hits upon idea of paying it forward by providing sustainable employment for impoverished workers in third-world countries, and selling their wares in the U.S....whew!), you'll be a happy buyer this weekend: the operation's opening up their warehouse for the first time ever, hosting a Warehouse Sale on Saturday, December 9, from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

What you'll find here are the slightly damaged, the apprentice-woven (kinda like a student haircut at the cosmetology school) and so on: but still, beautiful baskets at bargain prices, and still doing their main work of touching lives here and abroad.

The sale takes place at 1201 West First St., at the River's Edge Complex in Granite City. See, how can somewhere like that be the worst place to live? Sheesh. Check the website for more info.
