We are so fortunate to have an amazing neighborhood market here in the NW section of DC where I live. The Broad Branch Market is that type of place where they always know what you want (not that we necessarily need it). Take for instance, the la Salamandra Dulce de Leche and Dulce de Leche con Chocolat. Do I need this decadent chocolate? No. But do I want it? Oh ya! And those salted caramels that they had by the checkout counter last summer. Needed? No. Wanted? Over & over & over again! They do have milk, eggs & bread too, but that’s so boring and certainly not as much fun to write about.
At any rate, the owners, Tracey & John, are incredibly supportive of the endeavors of those of us living in the neighborhood. It is not unusual to see books for sale written by a neighbor, bags of coffee produced by a resident’s father in South America, and of course knitting kits from Knit Outta the Box. Recently Tracey learned that a dear friend’s three year old daughter was very sick and hospitalized at St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Wanting to do something to support St. Jude’s and the amazing work they do, Tracey came up with the idea of donating all the proceeds from the sales of our Hugs & Kisses Bracelet knitting kit to the hospital. I am incredibly touched that Tracey thought to use our product for such a worthy cause. Thanks Tracey. xoxo
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.
