A newly engaged, struggling student came to shop and spied a wedding dress for $125.00 which was out of her budget. Her friend encouraged her to try it on, and of course, it fit perfectly. She asked if she could leave $25.00 and pay the balance over time. Two shoppers overheard the conversation, and after the bride to be left, they each contributed $25.00 towards the purchase. We left the dress hanging in full view and told her story.
Within 24 hours, we got to call our bride and tell her the dress was fully paid for! This is the “true beauty” of this thrift shop!
