Islanders recently gathered at the United Church of Marco Island for the “Fifty Years of Fashion” Bargain Basket Fashion Show.

The special afternoon included a fashion show featuring some of the fabulous finds one might find on any given day at their Bargain Basket Thrift Shop. Models glided through the sanctuary for both Salute to the Decades and a Golden 50th Anniversary Tribute in honor of United Church of Marco Island’s golden anniversary.

Fanny Frugal made a special guest appearance and performed a wildly entertaining comedy bit while the models changed for the Golden Anniversary Tribute and finale.
