Skylab 2 astronauts
in very good spirits'
ABOARD USS NEW ORLEANS (A2 - The Skylab 2 astro-
nauts, back on earth after.a 59%~-day space mission, were
"much improved and all in very good spirits;" space doctors
said yesterday.
Astronauts Alan Bean, Jack Lousma and Owen Garriott
spent their first morning back on earth in more than two
months sleeping late in their quarters aboard this prime
recovery ship. They awoke about 10 a.m. EDT, just as the
New Orleans was entering port at San Diego, Calif.

BROWSING THROUGH some of the hand-sewn clothing at "Hand Made Things," is Beth Przybylski,
one of the volunteer employees at this non-profit store which specializes ii1 selling goods produced by
local handicraft buffs. The goods include everything from dresses to pottery.
Camus-ar ea store offTers
hand-crafted merchandise

For a long time, people have
complained of impersonality and
sterility in the huge modern shop-
ping centers. In these stores, the
emphasis is on quantity, lower
prices and efficiency.
Two young, women in the city,
however, have a store' with a
different emphasis - warmth,
homeyness and hand-made as op-
posed to mass-produced mer-
chandise. c
Jane Harris and Carolyne
Schoth, from Chicago and Dear.-
born respectively,, are the pro-
prietors of a small store called
"Hand Made Things" located at
343 Maynard (in the alley). They
sell a wide variety of hand-made
items ranging from clothing to
jewelry, pottery and children's
Actually, "Hand Made Things"
is not a store in the traditional
sense of thie word. It is a place
where people bring things to sell
as well.
The store operates on a con-
signment system, which means
the people who make the items

set a price, with the store get-
ting a one-third cut on all items
SThe store's cut is used entirely
to cover overhead expenses, and
neither the owners nor the em-
ployes receive any wages, ac-
cording to Harris and Schoth.
Instead, people who work at the
store are given the privilege of
selling their wares without sur-
rendering, the usual percentage.
"There are about 18 peoplei
helping at the store right now,"
Harris said. "Thpy come to sell
their things and are attracted
by the atmosphere. Soon they are
involved in running the place.
The idea of a store for the peo-
ple, by the people appeals to a
lot of people."
A few people, according to Har-
ris, actually support themselves
.entirely through selling their
wares. But most, Harris and
Schoth added, also work at out-
side jobs.
The major gal of the store
is to provide a place where peo-
ple can sell their own things.
"Many stores will. buy hand-

made articles," Harris says, "but
they usually cheat both the buyer
and the maker because they
mark up the prices so much."
Because there is a very low
overhead and no middle-man to
take a cut, Harris feels "Hand
Made Things" is able to offer
prices comparable to those
charged by other stores for items
of the. same quality.
"Most people think that just
because something is hand-made,
it is necessarily going to be more
expensive, but we don't think this
has to be true," she says.
Prices in "Hand Made Things",
range from as high as $60 to as
little as 25 cents. Dresses and
gowns range from $9 to over $30,
shirts go from $9 to $15 and cer-
amics are priced from $1.50 to
Harris and Schoth have been in
business since last fall and the
store has grown steadily. Harris
says that about 200 people cur-
rently sel things at the store.
Most are from the city, but
some are from as far away as
New York.
By January, Harris hopes to
reorganize ''Hand Made Things"
as some kind of co-operative
where people can sell items es-
sentially free of charge.
