Rescuing handmade objects

My friend Amy O'Neill Houck is a rescuer of handmade knitted and crocheted objects that end up in thrift stores. She had blogged about it (sorry can't find the entry), and recently moved from Takoma Park, MD to Cordova, Alaska. I wonder if there are thrift stores in Cordova?
So a week or so ago, when a friend of my son's came over wearing a crocheted poncho she bought in a local thrift store, I had to take a picture!

Awesome! We have one small thrift store in Cordova--I recently missed out on an awesome hand-knit cardigan with a ram in intarsia on the back. I guess even here, you have to act quickly! ;-)
