Clothes?

I don't have a particular need to buy clothes this month. But if I did...?

We've got some pretty great consignment stores in town to fill that need. You know, as long as you don't need underwear. In that case, you're probably just out of luck.

Someone posed the question, though, if a consignment store really counts as a local store. And I think, according to my rules anyway, that it really is more of a purely local store than just about anything else. The merchandise (regardless of where it originated) is gathered from the local community. And sold to the local community.
