Bakesale success!

After some unexpected and highly ridiculous delays (the camera with all our photos on it won’t interact with my new computer!), we’ve finally pulled our shit together to give you some semblance of a wrap-up of the East Bay Vegan Bakesale!

BUT FIRST! A time-sensitive, bakesale-related announcement:
There are all kinds of vegan bakesales popping up country-wide to send emergency funds to Haiti to help the earthquake relief effort!
The PPK site has a cumulative list of all of them (so check it out, wherever you’re from, and if you don’t see one in your area, organize one!). The one that will probably apply to most of the people reading this is one in San Francisco, this weekend. It’s Saturday, January 23rd, in Patricia’s Green (on Hayes Street at Octavia Street), from 11 AM to 4 PM. Please bake, show up, eat and support!

And now, with that said, onto the EBVB photos (courtesy of our friends Mel and Jose):

We set up our three tables in front of Issues as the sky threatened rain, and mercifully restrained itself all day! (For everyone who came to the sale: seriously, how great is Issues?! We are so thankful for their help, and hope you all continue to support them now that you’ve experienced their awesomeness firsthand).

Just a small sampling of all the delicious that people brought throughout the day. We had baked goods coming in waves, and were able to keep restocking our platters to almost the very end, ensuring that everyone who came by had lots of delicious options!

Thanks to all the volunteers who collected money and answered questions…

To the students of Laurel Elementary, for making us this rad sign! (here endorsed by cool-dude Jose)…

To the dogs of Bad Rap, for coming out and being their sweet, adorable, stereotype-busting selves…

And of course, thanks to everyone who baked, bought, and spread the word! It was truly amazing to meet and work with you all. And, all together, our efforts raised $2200 for our two causes!

We’ll see you all in March for the second installation of the East Bay Vegan Bakesale! In the meantime, follow us on Twitter, or contact us at ebveganbakesale@gmail.com to be added to our email list and receive updates.

For more coverage of the bakesale (especially since we have so few pictures!), check out the Cinnaholic blog. Did I mention Cinnaholic came through with FOUR different cinnamon buns for the bakesale? Swoon.
