    Used clothing stores profit from inflation
Used clothing stores seem to
be one business profiting from
Customers can pay anywhere
from a tenth to half the price on
clothes they might have bought
new. Jeans can be bought for
around $10 and matching tops
for $3 or $4. A $35 or $40 dress
new can be purchased for $10
to $12 in a used clothing store.
Economic difficulties aren’t
the only reasons people go to
used clothing stores. Many are
looking for vintage clothes
(clothes made in the early
1900s) that could be used as a
costume in a play or as a funky
outfit for a punk rock fanatic.
“We had this leopard shirt
that I though no one would ever
buy, but this guy loved it,” says
Barbara Kaykas from Tattered
Roses used clothing store. “I’m
pretty sure he was a punk — you
know, like punk rock.”
Debbie Norquist, manager of
Puttin' on the Ritz, says that
similar styles found in contem
porary clothes and clothes from
the 1940's draw people into her
vintage store.
People don’t always come in
to the store to buy clothes.
Sometimes they want to sell
them. Generally, stores will pay
50 percent of the resale value —
if the store will buy the garments
at all.
“I'm pretty choosey,’’ says
Gayle Hutchinson, owner of
Rags to Riches. "The clothes
have to be in pretty good shape
and I usually don't take anything
over two years old unless it’s a
vintage item.”
Stores will also take items on
consignment, which works as a
contract, giving the store and
the individual half the cost if the
item sells.
A new store for pregnant
women called the New Incarna
tion deals in used maternity
clothes and books on women s
Owner Rhonda Schneider al
so says she will pay 50 percent
of the resale value to people
who will bring their used mater
nity wear into her shop.

meeting called to make

Thursday, and the meeting was

league abandoned plans for the
Louisville debate.
Independent vice presidential
candidate Patrick Lucey had
accepted the invitation uncon
ditionally, as did John Ander

Reagan in Baltimore in the
league's first debate Sept. 21.
President Carter boycotted
the Reagan-Anderson debate in
Baltimore, saying he wanted to
debate Reagan alone first.
Reagan has since refused a
one-on-one debate with Carter,
insisting there also be a Carter
Anderson debate.
Hinerfeld said the league will
continue its discussion with the
presidential candidates to work

“We continue to urge the
public to bring pressure on the
candidates to commit to more
campaign debates,” she said.
"Our planning for the presiden

for Cleveland, Ohio, and Port
