It's "CHIC" to shop second hand

At Everybody's, a Manhattan secondhand shop, clerks are becoming used to hordes of shoppers stampeding through the doors each Thursday—the day a fresh supply of items goes on sale. Business has been so good lately at the Junior League Bargain Tree in Portland, Ore., that the store closed down one Saturday for lack of merchandise. At the flea market on the grounds of Miami's Tropicaire Drive-In Theater, stalls are booked an unprecedented two weeks in advance. The latest trend in shopping, apparently, is the shift to thrift.

Thanks for Helping Make a Difference

I would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that made a purchase in the month of September.  We had a FANTASTIC first month. 

During the month of September we originally said we would donate 10% of all sales from August 29th thru September 6th to the Preeclampsia Foundation.  Instead....We have decided to donate 10% of ALL sales for the ENTIRE month of September to the Preeclampsia Foundation. 

Thank you for your support.  Without you, we could not do this.
