I never dreamed of having personal shoppers at a thrift shop, but that is what happened. Those special pickers were none other than our “awn” neighbors Dawn and Shawn.
Dawn knew the thrift store was going to throw out clothing for lack of storage space. She texted me, asking what size top I wore. Shawn joined her, and they picked out things for themselves and ten tops for me! Ten (10)!!!
At Dawn’s suggestion, I’ll donate the ones I can’t use to another shop. According to the label, one was two sizes too large. My friends had good eyes, though, because I squeezed myself into that tank top. By definition, it had no sleeves. I failed the sleeveless scale 30 years ago and won’t try again. One top didn’t look good on me, though it would be great for someone else. The third reject showed dangerous cleavage. I’ll pass this one along to someone who is much more willing to flirt with danger than I am.
The slideshow presents clothes that originally cost more than I would pay, and I am delighted to have them. One still has the original store tag! The photographer, using only one hand, did not do a good job, but you can get an idea of the lovely things Dawn and Shawn chose for me. Thank you very much, dear neighbors.
