Story & Photos by Scott Schaefer
On a sunny Saturday afternoon, around 40 generous B-Towners brightened up the coffers of Burien’s Goodie Gumdrops, when they descended, en masse, and spent a minimum of $20 each in the first-ever Cash Mob Burien.
Participants first gathered at Bison Creek Pizza nearby, where the recipient was announced. They then marched over and into the Olde Burien toy store, where they packed the aisles picking out toys and gifts for themselves or others.
“I think this is great for Burien,” said Goodie Gumdrops owner Colleen Gaffney. “It’s such a positive thing – and is exactly what’s needed to keep a small community needs to maintain its independence.”
The B-Town Blog’s Scott Schaefer was on hand (as both a participant and Cash Mobber), along with his two kids, and he captured the following photos:
