We have two beautiful pieces up for auction this morning!
These both end at 6pm PST!

First we have these Animal Crossing Stone Pendants. They each come with a gift box and are lovingly presented on faux-leather necklace cords. Handmade, painted with non-toxic acrylic paints and sealed with a protective lacquer in order to protect the artwork.

Next up we have a Shift Banner Floral Embroidery Set! A set of 4 Shift Banner embroidered 12” hoops, filled with a cute floral design all over. Now you can show off your favourite shifts flag, no matter which one it is, and also satisfy your need for some cottagecore decor. Mounted into their hoops and backed with felt, they can be displayed as hanging artworks.

Best of Games Quilt

Created & Donated by Tara Heilke

Best of Games Quilt 1 of 4

In those 11 and a half bleak, quiet months between one Desert Bus and the next, you can cozy up under this colourful commemorative quilt, consoling yourself by playing games with actual plots, mechanics, characters and even scenery. This quilt will remind you that Desert Bus, while the best of games, is really also the worst of games. While sadly not watching it, you can rest content in the fact that you are also not playing it. The quilt’s detailed stitching shows off the bug splat, the road, the pine tree air freshener, the steering wheel, and the Sega controller. And if you flip the quilt over… surprise! It’s reversible and the back displays a video game that a mildly sane person might actually want to spend time playing. Just don’t let that Tetris song get stuck in your head…

This is a cotton quilt with polyester filling measuring approximately 45″ wide x 66″ long (approx. 113 cm x165 cm).

About the artist:
Tara Heilke (the mother of Desert Bus’ very own Tally Heilke) is a longtime seamstress who’s especially fond of appliqué. In between making monster hoodies for baby gifts and duck-embellished slippers for her son-in-law, Tara enjoys doing side projects like making masks and tea cozies and whatever else she can think of. She generally feels that the world needs a little more colour and pizzaz in it.
