Shopping with Purpose .....

Good morning! Are you having a good week so far? I hope so. You never know what a week's going to hold, do you? That's what makes life fun and also a little uncertain at times. ;)

Today I want to introduce you to the shop (shops) of my sweet online friend, Trisha. We met about a year ago through blogging and it was only this morning that I learned that her 5 year old son has a rare disease called Schleroderma. Trisha opened her three Etsy shops to help cover her son's medical bills. She and her two young sons along with her loving husband work together at their popular store in Linden, Washington and on her online shops. The boys help string beads for necklaces and her husband makes the knots for their Turk Knot Necklaces and helps her find interesting treasures to sell in their shops.

You can offer support to Trisha and her family by shopping at one (or all) of her three shops. Here are the links!

Her organic vintage shop - Wesley Asher
Her photography shop - Trisha Brink Design
Her retro/vintage shop - Ollie Bollen
