Why are we auctioning off one of our celebrity gift bags?
The Artisan Group's Managing Partner, and our dear friend, Nikki, suffered an unimaginable loss on the morning of Tuesday, January 31, 2012. Nikki narrowly escaped a house fire that destroyed her home entirely, and everything she owned. Sadly, all but one of Nikki's beloved pets perished in the fire. Nikki is now working on rebuilding her life. We want to help her by sending her ALL the proceeds from this auction.
Twenty-six members of The Artisan Group have rallied together to create this gift bag. Its total retail value is $863.
