MONTPELIER — Leslie Rabins, owner of One More Time, a second hand clothing shop on Main Street, is having second thoughts about leaving town. Earlier this summer she said she was going to sell off her inventory and head for California, but the success of her Going Out of Business sale has changed her mind.
“I have gotten such a big response. People want it, people need it, it is important,” she said, explaining that she is seeking people to bring in items for her to resell. “We are looking for regular stuff and vintage for cash. I am going to give it a try through the winter. It just depends if people come out.” She said the sale was a smash, but in recent weeks business has slowed down a bit.
When asked to characterize a typical customer, Rabins said, “somebody who is interested in recycling and saving the planet, saving some money and getting cool stuff. We have people of all ages.”
