This is a secret!  A story our Lady asked not to be told.   I was not in the store at the time. I did not promise I would not tell the story.   So, I won’t use any names.  I’ll just call her “our Lady.”

This event began when our Lady came into LADY’S IMAGE to buy a piece of the Blessings Collection – locally made jewelry – as a gift for a friend.  While our Lady stood at the jewelry  case, a second customer came into the store.

Weeks earlier our second customer had put her bridal gown and accessories on layaway. She came in to say she had been laid-off and didn’t know how she was going to pay the balance of her layaway.  Tears flowed.   The bride-to-be was devastated.  More tears flowed.  It was very sad.

Remember the customer buying her friend the jewelry?  Well, she was listening to the events unfold around her.  Her purchase was being rung into the cash register when she whispered to  the sales consultant, “I want to pay the balance of your bride’s layaway.  Please add it to my bill.”

Now our Bride really cried.  Our staff was in tears as well as the other customers in the  store.   Our Lady who paid the bill had no idea what the balance was for the bride’s layaway.  She only  knew she wanted to give a gift of kindness.

Tears of sadness became tears of joy.  Hugs and thank yous were exchanged.  We at  LADY’S IMAGE thank our Lady for her generosity and her gift.  What an example she set, especially not  wanting this story told.  I share this only to be able to say LADY’S IMAGE customers are the BEST and I  hope our LADY forgives me for sharing this little bit of joy with all of you.
