Buy a shower cap - help the bushfire appeal

Would you like to bathe in style, while protecting your special "hair-do"?
Would you like to help raise money for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal?

I have just listed this handmade shower cap on eBay, as part of a Handmade Help drive. The outer is a very pretty Japanese print and the lining is showerproof black nylon. The cap has been trimmed with bright pink binding.

100% of proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross appeal and postage is free - worldwide. The listing starts at a mere AUD$0.99. The auction closes on 15 February at 1:17am (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

Please help me avoid public humiliation (I am still scarred from the days when no-one wanted to pick me for sports teams at school) and bid this item up over the one dollar mark!

Or go further ... if you dare ... its for a very, very good cause.

For more details about how you can contribute to, promote or buy from Handmade Help to aid the bushfire appeal, check out:


  1. Love it HB. Good to see you are already getting bids, just been over and made mine but got a feeling it's going to get a bit competitive! Hoping to make my offering today

  2. This is such a great idea. I've just added my listing.

    Glad to see your bidding has hotted up - nothing worse than that last kid picked at sport feeling!!


Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing what people have to say. Leave a comment if you like.
