Once Upon a Time raffle

One of our favorite things about being a small business is having opportunity to participate in and positively impact our community. For the past few years, we have held a raffle to benefit Mary’s Place, a wonderful local resource for homeless women and children.

We are thrilled to announce our 3rd annual 18” doll clothes raffle, the Once Upon a Time raffle. This year, we are pairing up with Queen Anne Book Company as we feature beloved children’s books and their heroines!

The staff at Nancy’s has drawn inspiration from our favorite books to create more than 12 costumes befitting the awesome girl characters that we love. Even better? Queen Anne Book Company is providing a copy of each book that inspired the costumes!

We are selling raffle tickets now through December 23, 2015. Each ticket is $2 (cash or check only) and can be purchased in-store at either Queen Anne Book Company or Nancy’s Sewing Basket.

Let’s take a look at the incredible creations made by the Nancy’s staff:
