We're Glad for Gladys
From our Grand Opening
On the day of our Grand Opening (Saturday, November 2, 2019) I had the pleasure of meeting Gladys. Gladys is 103 years old, and came in with her daughter and granddaughter. She was frustrated with them because they made her use her walker to get into the store and while she was inside.
She was dressed to the hilt, clear eyed with coiffed hair and lovely jewelry. It was hilarious listening to her natter at her family. Anyway, Gladys was telling us stories about being the only girl of 5 brothers, her experiences with churning butter and knitting (that was nowhere near as good as her Mother's). My sister was able to capture a picture of Me and Gladys.
In the end, Gladys did make a purchase. A cane that had a hand carved snake head on it.
Gladys is who we'd all like to be when we grow up!
