When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Go Shopping!
"Fashion of the 1930s was directly influenced by the great Wall Street Crash of October 24, 1929 and subsequent Depression. The Autumn, 1930 Sears Catalogue admonished, “Thrift is the spirit of the day. Reckless spending is a thing of the past.” The beginning of the decade saw women sewing more. Clothing was mended and patched before being replaced. Less ready-to-wear garments were purchased, even though styles were dramatically changing."
For a lack of a better word.... Yuck.
Could it really come down to this. I don't even know how to thread a needle without pricking several fingers.
The next few weeks will be harsh for business nationwide, but we will rise above all the spoil and continue to be the happy pink and green mecca of hope we have been for 24 years now. If you are feeling down and out come on in and sit with the sisters and have a laugh.
Laughter is the best medicine. Also it will make you feel better the whole store is on SALE. What a wonderful time to have one.
