For more than 20 years Judy and Tom Lindsley operated Winslow’s most well-known clothing store.
Judy Lindsley chiefly helmed the business until she retired this May. But downtown merchants weren’t finished with her quite yet.
The Bainbridge Island Downtown Association honored the Lindsleys at its quarterly meeting on June 4 with a lifetime membership to the association.
“Judy and Tom are the kind of downtown business owners who were there to roll up their sleeves to replace light bulbs on the holiday lights, to give constructive and insightful input to complicated downtown issues, and be thoughtful and supportive business owners who know how to participate for the good of the whole retail community,” said executive director Andie Mackin.
With a bouquet of flowers and many smiles, Judy Lindsley was applauded for the 22 years of downtown salesmanship.
She won’t be entirely absent, however. She recently signed on to manage Winslow’s Seattle Children’s Hospital Bargain Boutique.
