Lasting Legacy resale shop. Kermit Eisenhut shakes his booty.
Think of it as the ultimate Montrose garage sale. Legacy Community Health Services’ most recent program for the community, Lasting Legacy resale shop, is in full swing and open for business. And if customers are lucky, Legacy’s Miss Mint Julep 2007, Aurora Briar (a.k.a. Jeffrey Forbes), may be on hand to aid them with their shopping needs. The store, occupying the 1232 Westheimer space that once housed Basic Brothers apparel shop, offers an emporium for discerning shoppers looking for bargains, whether in clothing, furniture, or housewares. Donations (details: 713/528-1653, www.legacycommunityhealth.org) are not only tax deductible, but can also give your favorite, now-too-tight pair of jeans or that extra coffee maker you got for Christmas a new, altruistic raison d’etre.

BOOT SCOOT BOOGIE.
cowboys and girls near and far pull on their boots in preparation for the 2007 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, popular community artist Kermit Eisenhut is elevating the spit-n-polish routine to new heights. Aiming to raise awareness for the 75th anniversary of the legendary event, the rodeo selected local artists, including Eisenhut, for Boot Scoot 2007. The artists were challenged to decorate 85 fiberglass boots measuring six feet tall by six feet long (what’s that they say about foot size?) for display at various Houston-area locations. Eisenhut’s boot commemorating the diamond jubilee of the rodeo is displayed at Reliant Stadium. Eisenhut adorned several boots for the rodeo and says a favorite is hard to pick — “I like ’em all!” He does have particular affection for one big shoe decorated with rustic photographs of buggys and wagons — the Old West’s methods of transportation. Ride ’em, cowboy!
