Proof nice people do still exist!

A while ago, I got this suprise message in my Etsy inbox:

"Hi there,
I was just wondering if you would like a couple of dresses for your shop? I collected them to wear but decided to cull a few things. I was going to take them back to the op shop but thought you might like them for your shop.
If so I can post them to you."

So of course I replied back with "send me pics and what you want for them and Ill let you know"

Today I received this response.
"No I don't want any money for them. I will just post them to you. If you like them, you can put them in your shop. If you don't you can pass them on to the op shop. No worries.
Just email me your address and I'll post in the next week."

I am gobsmacked - there ARE still nice people in the world. Unbeleivable!
I will be sure to post some pictures of what arrives. Until then, go forth with the knowledge that nice people do still exist in this world. That lovely woman is Karmas poster girl. She deserves good things to happen to her because she has given me something so unexpected - faith in random acts of kindness!
I often thrift gift. I have an unwritten rule with myself that when I aqquire new or thrifted items for my own wardrobe I do a clean out. What can't go into my own shop goes into a bag of "for my mates", what doesnt make it into that bag goes in a special box to go back to the op shop. I have many a time picked up items from my local that Ive sent there myself (yes I snicker that the price tag is the same as what I payed for it - amazing when you think about how much a single item can have cost if it has cycled through various new and second hand shops!)
Today I look forward to time with my sister and neices with my youngest Zac as well. We are heading to the Hyde Park Fair - to share childhood memories of when our mother would take us to this very same fair 30 years ago - I reckon she will be there in spirit - tousling her grandchildrens hair and filling our hearts with love!
