Thrifty Things Friday #79

Hi everyone!


It has been crazy busy around here the past week. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a cause that touches us. We lost an Aunt to breast cancer not too long ago. And we have a sister in law who is a 5 year survivor.

We decided that we want our business DTL Herbs LTD to take an active part in this cause. We know we are just a tiny business but, we thought that there must be something we could do.

After some research we discovered that a local hospital along with some local sponsors have set up a program for uninsured woman to get a free mammogram. After speaking with the people in charge of the program, we found out how much the cost of one mammogram is. And that is our goal amount to raise. We want to cover the cost of at least one woman to have a mammogram.

th1 So, this week we are rolling out a couple of new products. Although we are completely 100% natural with our herb products, I made a small exception and added some pink food coloring to our new Peppermint Sugar. This product was exclusively made for Breast Cancer Awareness month. A large portion of the profits will be donated.

IMG_4531IMG_4532I have been working on creating an herbed cornbread line of products. So, to launch this new line I am going to bake up some cornbread and have them available. There will be no price on them. It will be all donation and every penny will go to the mammogram.


In honor of this “Pink” cause I thought I would share a recent pink thrift find.


A brand new with tags Michael Kors knit top.


Obviously from his department store line and not one of his exclusive shops.


I love the silver rivets with “Michael Kors” stamped on them. they start at the shoulder on both sides and go to the cuff on the sleeves.


Regularly $89.99. At the thrift store it was $4.99 then 25% off. So, not bad for $3.74!

Check back on Saturday for a chance to win a $25.00 Kroger gift card!!

I’m joining Pink Saturday this week!
