We didn't arrive in Haiti with an agenda. I knew I would be at Kathy's mercy. We've known each other a long time and she knows my gifts and my lack there of. She rightfully steered me to her workshop where she showed me a basket of fabric rosettes the ladies and girls had made and said, "We need to figure out how to make these into something marketable to sell." Hmmm....ok. So, I spent a better part of the week fiddling in the workshop, trying to design marketable products.

Back to my crying this morning. Facebook greeted me with my top story being "2nd Story Goods is now open online." Excellent! What I was unprepared for was my reaction to the product line - most of which I had seen a dozen times. You see, the rosette bows are now being made by students at the deaf school in Goniaves, Haiti. And they are among the products for sale.
So, click over to 2nd Story Goods and buy some bows and headbands - well, why not get one or two of everything. Some of those products were born at Christmas and contain a piece of my heart.
