School Ties: Back-to-School Shopping
BUYING BACK-TO-SCHOOL clothes for the kids doesn’t have to be a chore. Carolyn Hotham, owner of Tiny boutique near Eastover, says some of her customers bring their children to the store to browse. “Let them pick a few favorites, then they will be much more likely to agree to other things.” These two outfits are a good place to start.
