Janice Wery loves vintage clothes, especially those sparkly strapless numbers that beckon you to throw them on and twirl across the dance floor. Her heart would ache when these fanciful dresses would hang on the rack of the vintage shop where she worked, month after month, unsold. And so the idea for the A2 Prom Dress Sale was born. The idea caught fire and six years later, Wery has more than 500 dresses in her annual sale, each one lovingly washed and ironed by her own hands. Dresses cost between $10 and $25- in other words, a steal. And the joy of seeing a young woman find her perfect dress makes the thousands of hours Wery has invested in her passion project well worth it.
