There are some weeks when a little retail therapy is more required than others. This was one of them. So how much did Mom spend on such therapy? $2.50 at the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd.
Her purchase? A brand new Marc by Marc Jacobs sundress ($1.99) and a "vintage" 1954 paperback copy of Homer's The Iliad (.50).
