Surrounded by boxes of new inventory, Mi Shoes owner Michelle Millar watches as Michelle DeHaan of Lynden tries on a new pair of shoes at the Bellingham store on Thursday, August 20, 2009. Following a summer when she struggled to be able to bring new shoes into her store, Millar received a gift of $5,000 to buy new merchandise from an anonymous donor through the non-profit organization Giving Anonymously. She already has started using the donation to re-stock her store.
