COLUMBIA — Connie Furlong of Harrisburg grew up with eight siblings fishing and hunting. Now, she helps her son, Jeremy Furlong, run his thrift shop, Tiger Town Treasures Thrift Shop, on Business Loop 70.

"He loves it," Connie Furlong said about her son. "I usually run it for him because he has two small children. I usually do all the duties. I love to do yard sales, and I've set them up before for people. And it's just a lot of fun. You meet a lot of people — a lot of people. Of all walks of life, really."
