Wow! I was in for a surprise when I opened today’s mail. One of our returning Artists, Anita Fontana, who last year created the Rainbow Beach bra has submitted another winner. This one is a first for the Bling My Bra campaign as Anita decided to actually DEDICATE her bra to someone. Love this idea!
Here is what Anita wrote in her enclosed note: “This bra is dedicated to Lee Mirabel, her husband John Sell, and the love that keeps them strong.
Much thanks to Anita Fontana, from Chicago, IL, who is a Professional Speaker, Trainer, Volunteer with Sit, Stay, Read, an Education Specialist and sells Women’s Plus Size Clothingn on eBay.
Gloria McClain has come up with an absoultely amazing 1950′s Art Bra paying homage to that ‘bullet look’ we all remember from the 1950s TV and movie pictures! Don’t recall it? Check out an episode of Laverne & Shirly for a sample, LOL So enjoy this unboxing video of our ‘Nifty Fifties’ Bra:
I wanted to do something different from everyone else’s, and wanted a ‘theme.’ Deciding upon a ‘fiftie’s-style’ bra, I knew it needed a bullet-style bra as the ‘foundation.’ Ended up being more difficult than originally planned, as far as finding the ‘right’ bra, in ‘like-new’ condition, and locating the bling things.
Our friend and Board Member, Beverly England (known as Samican2 on eBay). Has been one of the most vocal supporters for Bling My Bra since it’s inception in 2009. Bev worked tirelessly last yeas with founder Beth Cherkowsky to promote, promote, promote our cause. And it’s been a blessing to this year’s campaign that she is JUST as active this year!
Bev is the genius behind last year’s ‘eBay Radio Bra’ and promises a new, improved version this year!
Last week I received a sweet package from Bev that contained Breast Cancer Awareness mints to include in the
packages with each Bra that is shipped this year. Just another way Bev wants ALL bidders to know how much we
appreciate their bids and their help – so please BID HIGH AND BID OFTEN on Bling my Bra 2010!
