|Mack and Mack|
Recently my friend Mary gave me a flyer from Mack and Mack a women’s apparel designer, manufacturer and retail shop in Downtown Greensboro, North Carolina that offers an affordable and fun couturier experience. I had lamented to Mary that it was difficult for me to find jackets that fit because of lymphedema in my left arm as a result of breast cancer twenty years ago. My left arm is larger than my right so a jacket that fits my right arm and body is too tight in the left arm. Mary thought Mack and Mack might be a good resource for jackets because they can do special sizings.

The other day when friend Virginia and I were on our way to Opa, a Greek restaurant in downtown Greensboro, we happened to pass by Mack and Mack. After lunch we went into the shop in search for a jacket. Happily, they are making me a jacket that will fit. The body and right arm will be one size and the left sleeve will be made larger to fit my arm. Hurrah!!!! I was able to choose a design and fabric that I liked. They have six seamstresses in the back of the downtown store that make the clothes that have been designed by their designer with fabrics they have chosen. It's a fun store.

In addition to the clothes they make, they have a nice selection of scarves, handbags, and jewelry from other vendors.
