6 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, DECEMBER10, 2010 Sandy Shiffman, OWner Swap and Shop Consignmc,nt and Resale officially opens in Rodeo By SANDY SHIFFMAN I guess you could say I was born into this business. Grow- ing up in Venice Beach, CA with a family of seven buying new clothes, furniture, cars, etc was not an option. My ram ily mostly bought second hand, marked down "sale" items or we bought it broken and then fixed it ourselves. I learned very young how to buy smartly. My mother would make our clothes. Actually my mother's clothes were much nicer than what most of my class mates wore. She and I would pick out the fabrics and pattems then she would make me dresses, suits, jackets, hats, bikini' name it. So I would have to say my look was unique or different than the store bought ,items. My mom taught me to sew, knit, cr0chet...I taught myself how to macam6 (very poptdar back then) and make jewelry. Many years later I decided to macram6 a water bottle holder, then I crocheted one...pe0ple started asking me where I got it. The next thing I knew was that I am making and selling them. That led me to making custom purses and backpacks, using fab- ric, Crochet or Macram and beads. I was making more money from the purses then my day job. Over the next couple of years the department stores like Wal- Sen. Udall invites students to apply for internships Submitted by SEN. TOM UDALL'S OFICE/Washington, DC. U.S. Senator Tom Udall is inviting college students to ap- ply for internships in each of his offices. To submit an application for an internship with Udall's of- rice, please visit and select Internships. All internships are unpaid, but may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements. Col- lege students from New Mexico or college students attending New Mexico schools are given first preference, and students of all majors are encouraged to ap- ply. "Working in my offices wilt give students a unique and un- paralleled perspective of the in- ner workings of the United States Senate. Interns play an integral role in my offices' operations by assisting with administrative, constituent service, legislative, and correspondence duties in ad- dition to attending events and meetings," Udall said. "This is a gi'eat opportunity to learn about the governmental process and public service and I encourage New Mexico students to apply." The dates for internships in Udall's offices are flexible and all offices are currently accepting applications for the 2011 spring semester.

The community is able to rid them- selves of items they no longer need without having to drive into • the city and they can put money in their pockets as well, not to mention bringing in something that someone would be looking for. Learning what this commu- nity and people visiting the ar- eas would like to find here is something I am really looking forward to. We expect the busi- ness to change and grow with the feedback and comment's that . shoppers will share with us. Another part of the Shop I am so excited about is the grocery items. Good and healthy food is always a good thing to have available. With weekly, fresh and organic produce from the La Buena Vida Farms and yummy baked goods, coffee's and tea's and a variety of.interesting foods, we can fulfill a need in this area. With a friendly, comfortable and ever changing shop, we can hope- fully be a place that will add to the charm and convenience of the Rodeo and Portal area. We also plan on. renting out tools and equipment," we will be giving out referrals of people that can assist with whatever work needs to be done. We also hope to be offer- ing an occasional class or work- shop as we learn what people would like to be offered. A little creativity and com- mon sense are the basis of run- ning this business. Please come in and find out for yourselves, after all "One man's trash is another man's trea- sure."
