“WORLD’S BEST DISH CLOTHS”
Many years ago, we sold the “World’s Best Dish Cloths” at a minimal cost to help offset some of our expenses to buy flowers, etc. for shut-ins. We have found a different supplier and will be selling these cotton/polyester blend dish cloths, once again. Please see Kathie Carpenter or Margaret Post if you would like to see/purchase some. The cost is $2.25 each.
