The Tar Heel
Chapel Hill has its first handicraft
co-operative, the Sunshine Craft
Co-operative, for people who want to buy
and sell goods at lower prices.
Debbie Hamlet, one of the 12
members of the operation, said cheaper
prices are possible because the co-op
eliminates the middle man.
The co-op, located above the Central
Carolina Bank at the corner of. N.
Columbia and Franklin Streets, sells a
wide variety of goods including clothes,
candles, pottery, maerame and other
Expenses such as rent and advertising
are paid for by membership dues and a
small profit margin. Monthly dues are
$10. The profit margin, from the sale of
nonmembers' crafts, is 20 per cent.
Nonmembers who wish to sell their
goods in the co-op set their own prices

Three UNC students suffered first and
second degree burns in a solvent
explosion in Venable Hall June 10. The
students, (Ilenn Taylor, Douglas
Kowzloski and Sam Weddington, were
taken to the Infirmary by campus police.
Taylor was taken to the Emergency
Room for initial treatment and later
transferred to the Infirmary, lie suffered
first and second degree burns on his face
Kowzloski, a National Science
Foundation Institute student, was treated
at the Infirmary for first and second
degree burns on his right arm, back and
Weddington was treated and released
from the Infirmary for first and second
degree burns on his hands.
Dr. Francis N. Collier, chairman of the
Venable Safety Committee, said the
explosion occurred at 2:20 p.m. in room
The explosion, he said, occurred when
the operator of the still containing the
solvent forgot to let the fumes out before
starting the machine.
The "flash fire" burned only the
solvent, causing no sizable properly
with the approval of Sunshine members.
Miss Hamlet explained that the co-op
is run democratically with members
voting to accept or reject each item for
sale in their establishment.
She emphasized that all profits are
used to pay expenses. Eventually, she
said, the group hopes that enough people
will participate in the co-op so that
members and craft contributors can live
off the profits of the goods sold.
The establishment, begun May 18, is
accepting "new things every day." Miss
Hamlet said the group hopes to
eventually expand the operation to
Members include students, street
people and other Chapel Hill residents.
The Sunshine Craft Co-operative, in
room 19, 105 N. Columbia St., is open
Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
