    Mary's collection started with the one she is wearing. We were talking about the aprons out grandmothers used to wear and I found this one at a thrift store. She said maybe I should wear it at work and I said you should but you won't. And he took the dare. Her collection has grown to more than 200 aprons and customers bring them into her all the time as gifts. She has been working at our restaurant " The Savoy Bar and Grill ". Since 2007. She is loved by all and has a hug it the customers when they dine with us. She is a great asset
