Ugly Sweaters

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

It all started when we tried to find a few ugly sweaters for the local production of A Fox on the Fairway, which is a wacky golf comedy.

One of the male cast members had to wear ugly sweaters - three wardrobe changes worth.

So we went to the thrift stores - Goodwill, St. Vincent, etc. and combed the racks.

And couldn't find ANY ugly sweaters.

Sure we had some discussions over what constitutes an ugly sweater, but none of the zillions we picked through were going to work.

Someone far more talented than moi actually took regular sweaters and made them ugly.

There is officially a shortage of them.

Because of the popularity of ugly sweater parties

The flashier and tackier the better.

So if you're considering donating your ugly sweater -

It's a collector's item!
