'The Clothing Bank mission is to "Empower Unemployed Mothers Through Enterprise Development so that they can become Financially and Socially Independent". 

Founded in 2010 by Tracey Chambers (CEO) and Tracey Gilmore (COO), in response to the growing problem of unemployment amongst single mothers and the lack of support that they receive from the father of their children.We believe that if you help a mother you help a child.
Our Enterprise Development programme is a 2 year holistic training programme that empowers unemployed mothers to start a small retail trading business.  We source excess clothing from the major retailers in South Africa and use this clothing as the tool to teach.  Each woman starts running a small business within six weeks of joining the programme and the objective is that she should earn R3500 per month which is enough to feed, clothe and educate her family.  Our motto is "Don’t give a women a fish, teach a women to fish AND teach her how to sell her fish".  '
( can the above 2 paragraphs be in italic? Something that let's them stand out as not my words :) )

Thanks to Brenda from The Clothing Bank we have some wonderful tea towels. Brenda has hand stitched her initials on each hanging tag and done a wonderful job. We wanted the tea towels to have a hand finished feel to them. As we make more we will spread the work to different ladies in the programme to add their initials.

    I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi Paul, I have not heard of that step before. With chalk paint, I don’t think its needed, but you may want to ask BB Frosch. I simply cleaned my cabinets and painted directly over them with chalk paint. I’m wondering if the Shellac step is for traditional paint?

    Yes.. I was not impressed with the Americana stuff.. Annie Sloan is nice but pretty expensive.. after reading your blog post I went and checked out the BB Frosch and I am definitely going to give it a try ;) The wax looked nice too. And I like that it’s a home started business and not some big company. I looked at a bunch of other stuff made with the BB Frosch too.. everything looked great!
