Looks like a brilliant day all round, thanks for sharing the photos 😀
Do you get people who hide in doorways and watch, then come back and say they’ve changed their mind and will have a bag after all?
I had a few people in groups who all refused, but as soon as one person said “Oh yes please!” the others would say “Well.. maybe I will then”. One chap said he’d take one “for his sister” but I saw him half an hour later and the bag was suspiciously full already…
The camera/video is indeed mine, but the view isn’t. The Neighbourhood House is on a handy corner, and right on the fence is a small square building running a community shop for handmade and second hand goods. My lovely father kindly went up the ladder and attached a tripod to the corner of the building for me! And I did accidentally end up in the video, way down in the bottom left corner waiting to take some photos of the drumming class.
Since I’m a timelapse fiend, I also timelapsed a sewing session https://vimeo.com/103623251
It’s such fun! “Hello would you like a free re-usable shopping bag?” “No thank.. did you say free??”.
If anyone’s interested, there’s a timelapse of the crowd at https://vimeo.com/104846659
The Neighbourhood House offers community services (financial aid in emergencies, counselling, referrals etc) and community space for classes, gardens for markets and events and basically just a “drop in and have a chat” service!
Blissfully, I also picked up a hand crank Singer at the charity shop very cheaply, so if my back is up to lifting it, come Platypus I can sew in the gardens.
I don’t know if you can tell, but I am overly excited about Morsbags…
