Ever conscious of the need to help reduce the numbers of unwanted puppies and kittens I racked my brains to think of something completely different to raise funds. The idea that came to mind was to re-cycle and refurbish cushions. All the cushions come complete with inserts and some have been embellished with traditional Portuguese crochet.
Each customized cushion is unique and the stock is constantly changing, giving you the opportunity to update your home or rental property and support a good cause.
Prices range from €3 to €8 and I am delighted to announce that they are being stocked at Bedspreads Factory Outlet on the EN125 in Lagoa, next to Cepsa petrol station (www.bedspreadsportugal.com) to compliment their stock, and also at the Refugio dos Burros Charity Shop in Carvoeiro 282 354 065.
At the Carvoeiro shop there is also the limited chance to own a piece of an old Portuguese tradition. A few terracotta Octopus pots, locally called Alcatruz, which are now being replaced by plastic ones, are for sale. Each pot has a unique natural decoration from being in the sea for many years. They would look stunning in the house or the garden and are priced from €10.
Also there are specially sourced quirky items ideal for your home or for presents. All proceeds are paid directly to the vet to pay for spaying and neutering.
