GASLIGHT AND SHADOWS THANKS THE COMMUNITY

Your kind messages and support have warmed my heart and have given me hope to carry on. The more than 400 people who have responded with support and positive messages more than make up for the few people who broke into and burglarized the store. I have replaced the broken glass on the door, have a louder and more efficient alarm system and installed cameras. I opened Gaslight and Shadows Antiques on Clement Street in 1976 and have never experienced anything like this. Thank you everyone for your love and support. The GoFundMe fundraiser is still active: https://gofund.me/0195c019. With much appreciation and love, Phyllis Nabhan.
