Thanks to everyone who entered our TradeUP raffle and came to the swap on Saturday at Littlefield. We raised $200 for St. John’s Bread & Life, which will be matched by The Brooklyn Community Foundation. (The remaining $386 will help pay BB freelancers this month!)
The turnout was slight, despite 100+ RSVPs (was everyone at Maker Faire, or was the day just too nice to schlep your kitchenware to Gowanus?). Still, the things that people brought and took home were amazing. Swappers walked away with a juicer, a deep fryer, a Le Creuset grill pan, and weird cookbooks. There was a bread machine that was up for grabs, but no takers. (It will be delivered this week to St. John’s along with the other unclaimed items.) And I’m not sure if these vintage poultry shears found a new home…
I personally came home with 75 grams of Rougie Sarlat foie gras, a ton of glass spice jars for my loose spices, and a lobster pot. Score.
And here are the winners of the raffle!
