I'm excited to announce publication of my picture book, THE NIFTY THRIFTY, with illustrations from the talented Toronto artist, Janet Dolby.
My story is inspired by the fabulous and famous Thrifty Stores of the Vail Valley, CO, owned by the nonprofit organization Vail Valley Cares. It's a fun shopping and social destination for so many folks who live in my resort community. The friendly, dedicated staff represents a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds. The immense inventory comes entirely from community donations and it’s always an adventure to scout out unique treasures at bargain prices. Over the last decade, people everywhere have discovered popular shopping at “second-hand” stores, originally from necessity and eventually by choice. Stores similar to Thrifty are now a dime a dozen! Let's celebrate the value of recycled goods and prudent spending!
