A Coast Guard veteran looks back on the history of the Barque Eagle (Opinion)

November 13, 2011

It seems the term “Tall Ship” must have come from John Masefield’s poem, Sea Fever. My sea-faring Dad quoted that poem to me a hundred times, but he never sailed in a Tall Ship. Still, as a seafarer, he too felt the romance that whistled with the wind in the rigging.

But I noticed that, over time, most stores raised their prices to the point where it made more sense to just go shopping at a regular store and spend a couple more dollars to get brand new items. I noticed the clothing available in consignment shops becoming outdated and, unless you were an average medium size, the odds were slim that you were going to find anything to fit you. However, I’ve recently reclaimed my love of consignment shopping and it’s all because of a little place called “Tickled Pink” on Main Street in Wyoming.
