Makims at Moreden Artisan Market - Fundraiser for St Jude's Tanzania

Image courtesy of
In February 2002, Gemma Sisia (nee Rice) from northern NSW in Australia, founded The School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa. As a charity funded school, St Jude’s provides a free quality education to approximately 1,500 of the poorest children of Arusha, Tanzania, while also providing boarding for over 900 students. Additionally, the school now provides employment to over 340 Tanzanians and purchases the essential goods required to run the school everyday from the local community. The ripple effect of these benefits on the community and beyond has been incredible.

The Makim family has come together to create an Afternoon Artisan Market to raise funds for this very hardworking school. 

21 May 2011, 2:30pm - 5:00pm.

1419 Moredun Road
Ben Lomond, NSW Australia

Judi Makim will be our hostess with the mostess. 
Airdrie Makim will be bringing Joolz jewellery, designer clothes from a number of beautiful (and generous) brands, and designer handbags up from Melbourne. Neroli Makim will be down from Brisbane to autograph her book, 'Your Creative Success'. Afternoon tea will be provided, and of course as it is the Makims there will be the odd glass of bubbly about.

Entry to the Artisan Market is free, there will be a donation box and up to 100% (some designers have donated their entire sales, some have donated 50%) of the proceeds of all sales made on the day will go to St Jude's.

Fashion for men in the 70s - superhot or supernot?

So I got this email from a friend of mine this morning - absolute GOLD.
I have to share it with you guys, its too good not to!

Don't skip the copy that accompanies these gems from a bygone era, particularly this first one below.
Oh, and I love "Men in belted sweaters". And those Eleganza shoes? Pimpin!

Are YOU man enough to fill it?

"Just make sweet sweet love to the camera, Steve. Yeah, that's it man!"

This stretch terry jumpsuit comes with or without hood - so you can be as gangsta as you wanna.

Not only is that a damn fine hat, but that open-necked shirt gives me heart flutters. At least, I think that's what's going on...

The ties. Oh, the ties.

Jack's got his proud face on. Suzy cannot believe that collar!

Unfortunately we were so eager to include the caped suit that we had to cut away most of the seated beauty who had fallen to the floor in a swoon over how fly our boys are looking here.

Shoes = $34.95 Coat = $94.95 Suit = $57.95 Absolute Pimpin-ness = Priceless

Jerry and John laughed at Greg, as they scored all the pretty colours. Oh, how they laughed!

"Mama always told me that I'd know my true love by the belted sweater he wore - with so much dashing charisma, how could I say no?"

"Hey, where did all the weed go? You promised us, man!" "Aw shiiit, looks like Bruce got started early"

Nothing says 'happy families' like matching sleepwear!
