There was a point a few months ago when a second-hand staple in Fair Haven, The Attic, was going to get mothballed forever, ending a 40-year run on River Road.
The consignment shop’s owner, Melanie Selick, had suffered a stroke, leaving her incapable of handling the day-to-day duties necessary to run the business.
But Kathie Slavin, who, for years shopped and often dropped off clothing at the shop, simply could not let it go dark. So she took over.
