The hired help

Some may call it child exploitation or slave labour..... but I did pay them - in chocolate bars and Oreo biccies.

They stamped all of my paper bags for the market tomorrow, and punched the holes in all of my swing tags. They saved me at least another hour of work tonight.

Thanks boys!

Pah! Child labour my butt. There's a reason I'm called Pepperberry 'AND CO'... it's so I can hire cats, dogs, partners and friends for the price of a good piece of chocolate cake :-)

I hope you're nearly ready! See you tomorrow :-)

I think they were lucky to be paid in such a delicious way for playing with their aunt's cute stamp and puncher.
Good luck with your sales at the market!

Not slave labour at all. It's instilling a work ethic in them. Have a great day today
