Tickle Trunk says good-bye after 20 years

Dear Editor,

I want to thank the community of Three Hills and surrounding area and the province of Alberta for the support you have given me and the Tickle Trunk over the last 20 years. Unfortunately with the closure of ALL theatre including high school, community and professional and with the stopping of all parades, parties and fun – I simply cannot afford to keep my business open. I was told many times “how can you possibly have this kind of business in such a small community?” Over the last 15 years I supplied costumes all over Alberta and even sent them to the Sates and Saudi Arabia. I have loved helping people fulfill their dreams of becoming a spectacular character for a moment in time. I have loved making the displays in my large windows and seeing those people walking by – smile and laugh. I will continue sewing, do clothing alterations and hopefully sewing custom costumes (for sale) from the old Tickle Trunk building, beside the Co-operators. Thank you again.
