Just because masks have become a daily necessity, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style or personality. Kim’s Alterations is selling these unique, delicately hand-embroidered, cotton face masks at her shop located at 2002 N. Mississippi just off Cantrell Rd. Masks sell for $15 each and come in a variety of colors, so you can mix it up next time you mask up. And with the holidays right around the corner, you can show your support for this small local business by picking up a few extra masks to give as gifts to family and friends.
“They’re comfortable, pretty, and make you feel happy,” said Kim Lien Trinh, owner.
Kim’s Alterations opened just over one year ago but Kim has been doing alterations since 1994. Business at her impeccably clean one-woman-shop has grown steadily and she enjoys meeting new people every day, Kim said. Services include alterations of men’s and women’s clothing, formal gowns, and beading. She also works on leather, a service that is hard to find. Still, her favorite things to work on are the formal dresses and wedding gowns. She’s open Tuesday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
