This SPECIAL vintage wire basket is the one MaryJane is holding on the front cover of her first book: MaryJane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook—For the Farmgirl in All of Us. Perfect for collecting apples, eggs, cats, or as a wonderful accoutrement to your Ideabook. $25 plus shipping. But wait!!! That’s the minimum bid. This item is going to find its new home through an auction that ends at 3 pm PST, October 5, 2011.
Call the farm (per directions below) and let the bidding begin. We’ll post updates but not WHO is bidding. That will remain private. Did you know that a copy of MaryJane’s first magazine sold for $450 on Ebay? I feel another song coming on.
All proceeds (minus shipping and packing) will benefit www.firstbook.org, a non-profit that provides new books to children from low-income families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The first person to call the farm and talk with Brian, 208-882-6819, and pony up a credit card, becomes the new owner of a little bit of herstory. Shipping will be either USPS or UPS, our choice. No returns.
MaryJane, I’ve done some charity work for Firstbook as well and will be doing it again, there is no excuse for illiteracy in a culture that throws good books in the landfills. If I wasn’t dead broke and needing to fix my roof, I’d bid in a heart beat! Thank you for stickin’ up for those that need stickin’ up for and being an all ’round good farm girl 😉
