Garage sale customer looking for shoes paid for but left behind
DEAR SUN SPOTS: Being an avid Sun Spots reader, I have found the column to be the perfect place to locate things and provide readers with useful information on many topics.
I’m trying to locate a garage sale that took place on Saturday August 7th where I bought three pairs of shoes in great condition. I am the one who finds many treasures that cannot be found in other shopping methods. I went to many garage sales that day and left my shoe purchase behind. It was a big yard sale with wonderful items at bargain prices including maybe 30 pairs of shoes or more.
If anyone remembers this sale and where it is, I’d like to see if these shoes have been put away because I need them and they are a perfect fit for me. My number is 330-5422. Thank you for your wonderful service. – Walter, Lewiston
REPLY: Hope the folks running the sale put these paid shoes aside and are waiting to hear from you. Can someone at Sun Spots Land help Walter?

DEAR POINTS OF SUN: I am considering the issue of tips for massage therapists. (August 5 Sunspots). I have been in my private business for 26 years and have not requested a tip because I believe the service charge is adequate. I’m not sure what non-private companies charge, but the information would be helpful in helping to understand the culture of tipping.
Thank you for your good and useful column. By the way, I too enjoyed Wasson’s Grove with my family as a kid and was excited about a burger and chocolate milk! The slide was also fun. – Bette, no town
REPLY: I would love to hear from massage therapists as well as their clients on this. As a massage therapist in a private practice, what are your tip expectations? If you are employed by a spa, what is the protocol? If you work in a healthcare facility, are tips allowed? Please let us know so that the customers, we can do the right thing for you.
