For some, there's nothing better than finding the latest fashion at a bargain. Combine that with a cocktail and a few hors d'oeuvres, and you've got a party. That is exactly why droves of (mostly) women could be seen entering a vacant storefront at Hunt Valley Towne Centre on a recent Friday night. The Junior League of Baltimore was throwing a Preview Party for its annual Boutique Warehouse Sale. As guests sipped their glasses of wine, they could try on shoes and a cute little dress, or maybe nab a darling little outfit for a child or grandchild from many of Baltimore's best boutiques - at prices that were reduced up to 70 percent off their original cost.

Owings Mills junior Taran Carr comes from a wrestling family. Two of his uncles, Jimmy Carr and Nate Carr, made it as far as the Olympics, with Nate earning a bronze medal in 1984. His dad, Solomon Carr, was a high school wrestler in Pennsylvania, where he set state records, and is assistant wrestling coach at Owings Mills. It seems only natural that Taran should follow in their footsteps. But the senior, while wrestling with great success - he's 16-0 in Maryland this season and 16-1 overall, losing only to the then-No.

I read the item about the Junior League's "diaper drive" ("'Baby Pantry' gets 11,000 diapers," Jan. 10), and my first thought was, "What a misguided effort!" While the effort to provide diapers to the needy is commendable, the Junior League of Annapolis would be better served to provide cloth diapers to the needy. Cloth diapers are $12 per dozen at one of our local major retailers. Cloth diapers are reusable, free after the initial investment, and do not clog our landfills. Why would anyone consider encouraging the poor to use expensive disposable diapers when such an inexpensive alternative is available?

For struggling families with young children, the seemingly endless need for baby diapers can prove a real financial strain. Realizing the need, a local nonprofit group recently teamed up with a diaper company to donate more than 11,000 disposable diapers to an organization serving more than 75 social service groups in Anne Arundel County and the Eastern Shore. The Junior League of Annapolis collected the diapers through donations from its 400 members and by holding diaper drives outside local stores in November and December.

Jill Hettinger, retired from a private practice in social work, always gets teased by friends because she prefers rummaging through the racks at thrift shops to shopping somewhere pricier like a department store. "It's not like you don't have money," she said they always tell her. But because of the weak economy, more people are discovering the secret that Hettinger, raised by a frugal father who lived through the Great Depression, has known for years. The resale business, which includes thrift and consignment shops, is booming as consumers, who have lost their jobs or watched the values of their investments portfolio or homes plummet, look for ways to pinch pennies.
