Karen Wilburn, the owner of the children's resale store, is thankful that everyone had another vote left in them.
“We just finished that whole election thing, so voting was probably not on anyone’s list for this store -- but we're glad!” said owner Karen Wilburn. “But we're glad that they came out, and we're glad that they voted, and we're glad that we were able to give them what they are looking for.”
One customer who posted a review online said, "The staff has been very friendly and helpful. I don't know how they're so cheerful around kids and babies all day but they manage to do so. I've had very positive experiences here so I will be happy to return when I need more baby shower gifts."
