Oh Pioneers!

Now that the Fourth of July is over with, we can concentrate on the really important holiday here in Utah: the 24th of July. If you are not from these parts, the 24th of July commemorates the arrival of the Mormon pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley in the year 1847. Pioneer Day festivities include the Days of '47 Parade, picnics, rodeos and of course, fireworks. Some would say the holiday is celebrated with more zeal than even Christmas. The importance of a holiday can be measured by the number of people ending up in the E.R. Judging by the amount of firecracker noise and subsequent "hootin' and hollerin'" on the evening of the 24th compared to that on the 4th, I would wager that the 4th pales in comparison.

Second Hand Chic will be closed on Friday, the 24th. We will reopen on Saturday, July 25th at 10 AM. We hope you all have a fun yet safe holiday with family and friends.

Love, Kelly
