Dear Sun Spots: What happened to the Clothes Horse? Last I knew it was at 336 Center St., Auburn. I still have a gift certificate from 2008 that I have not been able to redeem. I called their phone number and it’s not working. No forwarding information.

I really like their selection of clothes and accessories. I used to stop at their shop many years ago when they were in Bridgton, while I was vacationing at Sebago Lake State Park. My friend from Massachusetts and I could always count on finding something there.

Please see what you can find out about this wonderful shop. Hope they have not been a victim of the bad economy and just moved to a new location. Thank you. – CJS, Dryden.

Sun Spots left numerous messages for the former owner but has not received a response at this time. We do know that the store has closed, but we don’t have any information for those holding gift certificates.

Dear Sun Spots: You’ve helped me before, so I thought I would try again. I would like some old suitcases. Not so much the real antique ones, but the ones with the snap latches, square corners and flat sides. I cover them. Will pay a reasonable price. Thank you so much for all your help. Call 897-3888. – Honey, Jay.

Dear Sun Spots: The High Street Congregational Church, 106 Pleasant St., Auburn, has set April 18 for this year’s Fabric Supply Fair. The fair will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is the fair where crafters can rent a table for $15 and come in and sell all the supplies they bought but never used.

This fair is for the fabric and supplies only, not the finished products. For more information, call Judy McKinney at 753-0367. All calls are returned, however, in previous years some messages were unclear and I was unable to hear the name and phone number. Fabric donations for the church tables may be left at the church after April 1. Call the church at 784-1306 to confirm when someone will be there. Thank you. – Judy McKinney, Auburn.
