A netizen by the name of Jaya Dutta recently posted on social media platform, Facebook, about an elderly lady selling her goods at Toa Payoh MRT station.
She mentions that she always sees the elderly lady from Monday to Friday selling items which she crocheted herself at Toa Payoh MRT station and even though her handcrafts are many and unique, she gets very little sales from her works.
The netizen also mentioned that after she bought a crocheted item for her kid, the elderly lady broke into tears as it was a few days since she had any sales.
Here is the post by the netizen
“Looking forward for supporting one elderly needy artist !!!
I always see one lady in Toa Payoh MRT station (only Monday to Friday) CROCHETING for hours but with very little sell. Her works are amazing and diverse. She follows some pattern books and keeps making something new to attract more customers. She even takes customised orders and make anything that customer would like to.
While I was buying some crochet bottle holders for my kid today, she broke out in tears as she had no sell for last few days!
I don’t know her personally or promoting for her but trying to help some artist whom I see on my way to work everyday, spending the long hours sitting and crocheting!
If anyone likes to support her by placing orders or buying from her(please note: she is not looking for money as donation but someone to appreciate or buy her work), please reach out to her directly !”
