At Camille's Closet


WILLMAR -- When Laura Becker opened the doors at Camille's Closet on a warm, sunny morning last week, three customers were already waiting outside.

When they left 15 minutes later, one of them was wearing the cotton tropical-print shirt she'd bought at a bargain-basement price, and the shirt's original owner had earned a percentage of the sale.

Everything old is new again at Camille's Closet, one of the region's few consignment stores specializing in women's clothing.
