On Friday morning, Lahna Deering was in the KXLL studio promoting Deering and Down’s weekend shows when Radio DJ Jessie suggested they go thrift shopping at “Sally’s,” Juneau’s downtown Salvation Army. After taking a million photos the night before at open mic, I decided to try something new and video tape the adventure. Set the song “Towney” Lahna, Rev and Jessie pick through Sally’s looking for that perfect piece.
