Ever heard of Flash Mob where a group of random people meet up at a specific time and break out in dance? Well this past Saturday I participated in a Cash Mob. It's similar to Flash Mob, except we break out in cash instead of a dance to help support our local stores. I must say it was a really great feeling knowing that I took part in such a great event.
I got a call from one of the mom's from school asking if I had the time would I pop in at on of our local stores, Gumballs and Overalls, a consignment boutique for second hand goods for our little ones. I immediately said yes and called a few people I knew to spread the word. I even posted it on both Just Us Girls and my personal facebook page.
Destination: Gumballs and Overalls.
Date and Time: Saturday, January 28th at 1pm
Goal: Spend at least $5 in the store.
I went with my friend Liisa and we both spent well over $5, met some really nice ladies who were also apart of the Cash Mob and the best thing was, the owner had no clue! I love that. The fact that we all took the time to stop in and help out one of our local Canadian shops was good enough for me. I left feeling great and I can't wait to do it again. It's always great to help support your local businesses. I'm glad I got to be apart of the Cash Mob and can't wait for the next one.
