There was no long line outside the doors, and the store manager was worried. Normally there is. Normally too, the Boutique is held Saturday and Sunday not Friday. Right on time the doors opened, and the crowds showed up.
I worked in the back room as I usually do. Not only did they arrive to shop, they dropped off armloads of donations before buying holiday goodies by the boxload. I was a very busy back room person.
Out in front, the store took on a festive air.
