    Mrs Kauffman was such a sweet lady. In 1972 I went to her store to buy a dress for the prom. I had $35. She met me at the door and asked me what I was looking for.. I told her what I had to spend and she said..” you are lucky, your tall and I have lots of dress’ on sale for tall girls.” I walked out of there with a beautiful dress for $4.
    I’m not sure, even to this day , if she made the price special for me or not..but she did make sure I got a beautiful dress and had enough money for shoes too !!!.
