Thriving Thrift

 

continued

"I would never scream-that's not my personality," Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop founder Ann Holz said in a phone call. Our February Inside Ann Arbor on the shop quoted board chair Janet Frisch's recollection that Holz was so tired of traditional school fundraisers that "she could scream." We could and should have asked Holz herself.

We did quote Holz in a 1996 Marketplace Changes item on the shop-and if we'd reread that piece, Holz noted, we could have avoided another error: the relative she visited in Chapel Hill, where she got the idea, "wasn't my sister, it was my sister-in-law." Holz also stressed that though its first sale was held at Tappan Middle School, the PTO Thrift Shop was never a Tappan project-it was always intended to benefit the entire district.    (end of article)
