There's a new and unusual service now available at the Seaport Farmers Market
(1209 Marginal Road). Julie Lyons
' enterprise is called Scribbles for Sale
. "I propose to write custom letters of any nature (i.e. complaint, apology, affection, business, etc.) in the tradition of scribes found in Asia and the Middle East," she explains. "I am partially fluent in German, French and Spanish so can assist non-native English speakers." Her aim is to also raise awareness and funds for the Legacy of Life Foundation
(an organ and tissue-donation program). "As a recent heart transplant recipient I want to raise both awareness and funds for education, which I do by selling greeting cards made with work of local artists." Donor forms are available at her table and all profits go to the cause. Look for Lyons at the Seaport Market on Sundays at the table with the heart-shaped balloon.
