I have met so many wonderful women here in Lagos -- Nigerians and expats. This post is in praise of expat women who are talented and dedicated and service-oriented. They knew that the American Women's Club needed to raise money to continue to support our charities and so they decided to put on a bazaar. They formed a committee and came up with some creative crafts to celebrate the season and called the event a "Spring Fling." For a number of weeks, some crafters met weekly and made things to sell.When they were drying on cups, they look like mushrooms....
Here's our booth with one lovely model displaying some fabric jewelry,
This is Chi Chi, my favorite Nigerian jewelry maker.
Expats sold things as well as Nigerian vendors.
I didn't take pictures of the bake sale and food booth, but the hot dogs and baked goods brought in some good returns and were popular with the crowd.
