Celebrating Random Act of Kindness Day

One crisp sunny Sunday morning in November 2017, I arrived at my stall for day 2 of South Hill Park’s Craft Fair, and I was greeted by very sad and manky looking carrot which I had been using as a prop on my Santa Platter displays. There was no way I could use it so I popped it in my bag to chuck away later. 

After a few hours on the stall, 2 ladies were admiring the platters and one remarked that I needed a carrot. I explained what had happened. She said that there was another stall holder selling ceramic carrots. I said that I had seen them and thought they were really cool but that I had promised myself that I wouldn’t spend any money at the fair or I would end up spending all my profits on the beautiful items for sale. The ladies agreed with me and moved on.

Less than 1 hour later one of those ladies came back, thrust a package into my hand and walked off. When I opened the package I found one of those ceramic carrots we had been talking about. She had bought it for me! Out of the kindness of her heart! 
I chased after her and gave her a hug. She told me to make sure that I pay it forward. 

So here I am, publicly promising to pay it forward.

Thank you so much mystery lady. You really made my day!
