Over 40 artists, designers and artisans from around the world have donated their works to an auction to benefit the James Kim Memorial Fund. Bidding begins tomorrow [Jan. 3rd] on eBay, and will continue through Jan. 7th. 100% of the proceeds of the auction will go toward the fund set up for James Kim's wife and daughters.
At the risk of making a tragedy sound like a shopping opportunity, there are some really great things to bid on, which reflects the generosity of the donor artists and the auction organizers, but also the Kims and their community: shop owner/parents of young girls.
In addition to a couple of children's outfits, there are some wonderful-looking, handmade dolls, a customized set of letterpress stationery, and my absolute favorite: one of Jess Hutchison's knitted robots.
