We tried a neighborhood approach to our apple sale this afternoon, but instead of going door-to-door, we thought we’d set Finn up in front of the house and see if we could drum up any business. The boys turned an old cardboard box into an apple sale booth.
I made some apple muffins as a sales incentive.
And both boys took turns manning the booth.
It was kind of a slow afternoon, unfortunately, but we sold one bag of apples and got a $2 donation from someone who just wanted muffins. Moreover, Finn had a great time and we met a few new neighbors, so I’ll count it as a success.
We have until October 6th to take apple orders or donations, and Cottage’s online store explains the details and makes it easy. We are really trying to bring in the dough this year (Finn’s last year at Cottage and my year as Fundraising Chair), so any and all help is much appreciated. And if you’ve already donated, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
