KISMET KLAW FLEA
Proving once again
that one person’s garbage is another’s interior decoration the annual KLAW
benefit flea market was both enriching and entertaining. The weather
couldnp;t have been more perfect. Cold
and misty it was definitely not a beach day and a welcome diversion for
weekenders. KLAW provides care for feral
cats in our area including preventing
further litters, aiding in adoption of
new and abandoned kittens, medical care and
providng year round food and
shelter especially through the rough winters. Through a network of volunteers
we have an excellent record of keeping track of the animals and sharing
Some of the items
for sale, each with a history. That painting was given to Dawn & Gary when they bought theor house from
Linda and Jay as they redecorated theirs. Now it will brighten another’s home.
Zev is bringing donations all the way from
Seabay.(he will probably leave with more than he brought)
Marilyn is pricing

between $1 and $4 on most items, they fly off the tables.

found a set of
white dishes and went home to donate Rose’s dishes. Gary
not afraid to show his feminine side with that dainty pot.
