Mark you calendars for the Woman’s Club of Greenwich annual holiday boutique:
- Friday, Nov. 14, 10:00am – 5:00-pm
- Sat., Nov 15, 10:00am – 4:00pm
The club, located at 89 Maple Ave in a spacious Victorian mansion, has ample parking and brims with room after room of unique gifts. There are also visits from Santa, raffle prizes and “Grandma’s Kitchen.”
Over the years the annual two-day shopping event has become a destination for people seeking handmade and one-of-a-kind gifts. All proceeds from the two day event benefit the Club’s philanthropies and scholarship fund.
This year Greenwich Free Press will feature each of the three dozen crafty vendors over the weeks leading up to the event.
Featured Vendor: Three Bluebirds
Lynda Baldauf’s Three Bluebirds business operates locally. Baldauf, of Old Greenwich, offers super absorbent and eco-friendly Swedish dishcloths, which are the perfect green replacement for paper towels and sponges.
Each Three Bluebirds dishcloth is reusable, 100 percent biodegradable and compostable.
The cloths can be cleaned and disinfected in the top rack of the dishwasher, washing machine, microwave or even boiled in a pot of water. Each one lasts approximately nine months with normal use—that’s about 300 washings!
Made from two natural fibers, cellulose and cotton, these sponge-like dishcloths absorb 15 times their own weight and can last a good nine months with average use. They can be used to clean everything from kitchen and bathroom surfaces; dishes and windows; cars and patio furniture.
They’re also great for damp dusting furniture, picture frames, chandeliers and baseboards. They can even be used as a natural sponge in the shower!
Each dishcloth is 6 ¾ inches wide by 8 inches long and 1/16 inch thick, featuring a brightly colored pattern printed with eco-friendly ink. Each pattern could signal different uses (i.e. one design designated for use in the kitchen, another for the bathroom, etc.) The cloths can be cleaned and disinfected in the top rack of the dishwasher, washing machine, microwave or even boiled in a pot of water.
The Woman’s Club of Greenwich was founded in 1910 to bring together women to promote civic, philanthropic and educational activities and exert a helpful influence in the community. The Clubhouse is conveniently located and is available for events such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvahs, quinceañeras, or other social or business occasions.
