Gladys Bikes Bake Sale
November 16, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
You’re invited to join us for some baked goods, community vibes and good times at the shop this Saturday! From 1pm-5pm we’ll have a bunch of baked goods made by our customers, friends and community available for y’all. Just purchase a sticker for $10 (lovely design in comments) and then help yourself to cookies, pies, cakes, and whatever else our pals decide to whip up.
Why are we doing this?
You may have seen that we were the unfortunate recipients of another break-in this past week. (It’s hard being so popular!) Fortunately the thief didn’t make it away with much, but they did break down our front door, which isn’t cheap to replace. And, long story short, though we’re fully insured, unfortunately insurance isn’t nearly as helpful as we’d all like it to be (we’ll spare you all the details on how unhelpful liability insurance is in practice, but feel free to ask if you want more info) and so we’re left to foot the bill (again).
Fortunately, we have a great community that has come forward to ask how they can offer support. Accepting help can be hard, but there’s strength to be found in vulnerability and having a supportive community sure isn’t a weakness, so we’re embracing the love our community wants to throw our way by hosting a sticker/bake sale to help us recoup some of our window replacement costs.
It should be fun! Come to the shop, pick up a sticker or two, eat some cookies (or other baked goods), maybe color a picture of RBG, perhaps talk about bikes, drink some coffee (it’s on us!), and enjoy being able to feel all cozy, warm and fuzzy in cool the November air with us.
**Thank you to all of the people who have volunteered to bake for this event! We truly appreciate all of your support! However, we’re all set on baked goods at this point; the best way to show your support is just to show up, maybe buy a sticker, give us a high five, eat a cookie and just generally continue being great.**
