These past couple years have been hard on small businesses.  It seems we're out of the woods, yet we are stilll seeing places go out of business far too often.  To those that have somehow been able to hang on, we need to applaude and support them.

That's why it's so hard to see place like Abernathy's get taken advantage of.

If you've never been, it's a super unique shop with vintage pieces, handmade items and weird stuff you can't find anywhere else.  In fact, I'm not sure I'm cool enough to shop there.  But I like to anyway.

See if you can help them find out who shoplifted from there store the other day.

It's everyone's favorite time! To catch an Abernathy's thief:

This woman who goes by 'Julie' & her friend came in around 2pm today (Wed Aug 31st) and helped herself to an Abernathy's hoodie and a hat.

They had mentioned they had just gotten new sandles at another store, so we are potentially one of multiple businesses they hit today.

If you recognize these two, we'd so appreciate you sending us their names.
