Hyde Park Farmers Market / Halloween costume sale!
We’ll be at the community table at the Hyde Park Farmers Market on Thursday, October 13th, from 7am (OK maybe not exactly 7am) until 1pm. Please stop by and say hi to our volunteers, and check out the fruits, veggies, flowers, baked goods, coffee, and etc. at the market!
And … we’re going to be selling HALLOWEEN COSTUMES! Yes, we would love to take any old Halloween costumes (pieces ok) off your hands to sell! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
Our table is provided free of charge so let’s show the market a little love!
Cordelia, a 5 year-old gentlewoman, came to us a few weeks ago and is being fostered by one of our star volunteers, who writes:
“As for her backstory, she was found on the street roughly 4 years ago by a UChicago student, who took her in and then gave her to some friends. Those friends are the ones that cared for her for most of college and the year after, moving her around from apartment to apartment as they did. They’d like Cordelia to have a bit more stability and consistent love & company than they were able to provide.
Cordelia so far has been an impressively good house cat. She is very clean, uses her litter box like a champ (and doesn’t track litter all over the place!), and has not once scratched my furniture, opting for her scratching posts instead. She’s a little overweight, although she doesn’t eat that much. Cordelia’s also pretty low-maintenance, she is mostly just content sitting on the couch with me and doesn’t need much more stimulation than a scratch behind the ears. I could imagine her as doing really well with a family or older owners who don’t want a super energetic or destructive kitten.”
Take a gaze into Cordelia’s beautiful green eyes and contact email@example.com to meet her today!
