Village Emporium on Pleasant Street is opening a corner of their shop
for a selection of like- new ladies consignment clothing. If you have
items to bring, please ring ahead to set up a time. Don't show up with
"previously loved to death, ignore the rum stain down the front from my
last night out at the pub" items that you picked off your bedroom floor
while doing a muck out. I think "gently worn" was the phrase they
mentioned. You can find the do's and don't's on their website.
