Celebrate thrifted treasures and the power of community and family.

When Pawpaw moves in, he shows Dominique a whole new meaning of hand-me-down clothes. When Dominique and Pawpaw embark on a trip to the grocery store, Dominique meets the former owner of each quirky, thrifted find and hears a memory associated with the clothing. Their quick trip to the grocery store becomes much more as they also make stops at the barbershop and the local ice cream parlor and, along the way, meet community members who are surprised but pleased to see their previous belongings sported by Dominique.

Dominique’s Thrifted Treasures was inspired by members of the author’s family and by her friend and showcases the power of community and family. Featuring a nonbinary child who uses they/them pronouns and their grandfather, this warm and joyful story highlights the subtle and sometimes surprising threads that connect us to our neighbors while touching on economic issues faced by low-income and multi-generational households.

A section at the back of the book for children offers a starting point for further discussion and exploration of Dominique’s story.
