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.

Nordstrom and the Junior League of Baltimore made beautiful music together Wednesday evening. It was the grandest opening of a department store I've ever attended. Four floors laden with people, two knock-'em-dead fashion shows, lavish buffet stations a la Charles Levine caterers, beautiful flower arrangements by Kathy Paal, and music by BS&M, the Keter Betts Quintet, and Bobby Felder and the Blue Notes.More than 2,000 first nighters were there along with members of the Nordstrom family who came to town for the opening, which, according to Bruce Nordstrom, co-chairman of the board of directors, was one of the nicest they've had. Bruce enjoyed his stay in Baltimore, especially while he was playing golf at the beautiful Caves Valley Course.

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.

On an enchanting spring morning, members of Baltimore's Women's Civic League float into a banquet room at the Towson Golf & Country Club for their annual luncheon. They are pretty in pink, yellow and white. They wear extravagant straw hats festooned with flowers and glittery lapel brooches in the shapes of dragonflies, black-eyed Susans and other natural wonders. The women greet one another with hugs and kisses. Some, accompanied by laconically gallant husbands, sip a pre-meal cocktail.It is a bittersweet occasion for the women, who have announced that today's Flower Mart, the 82nd, will be their last.
