The Hosparus Thrift Shoppe recently hosted a Back to School Fashion Show at its Helmwood Plaza location. A dozen models ranging in age from 6 to 17 sported the latest styles. With name brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Guess, these threads were cool enough for the most discerning young wardrobe.
Moira Taylor, Thrift Shoppe manager, says the Fashion Show boosted sales to more than $700 for the day.
“We were thrilled with the turnout, donations and sales that day. Our models had a great time as well.”
