Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico visited several resell shops today and found some nifty bargains. One Red Hatter purchased a large "Coach" handbag for $65 including tax. Original cost was probably $400 and it is in stellar condition. This was indeed the best deal of the day. Some of the stores we shopped at were The Red Door Mini Mall on 9th Street and Vintage, Etc. on New York Avenue where we actually made purchases.
A number of Red Hatters opted not to shop and to meet the shoppers at the Sunset Run Barbecue Restaurant for lunch. Their were 11 in all and a wonderful time dining and telling war stories was enjoyed by everyone. The food was delicious and the dessert scrumptious, bread pudding with a delightful whiskey sauce.

Almost forgot to mention that service at the restaurant was excellent and the setting in a room by ourselves was perfect for our interaction. Thanks to Alice for taking the one picture for me.
This is all I have to say for now.
