Actually, you live in N.C.? They just opened their boutique...I would march in there after the holiday and talk with all the SAs. Let them know who you are and your story. Ask them to keep you in their little book. It just might work! They may remember you as the young lady who came in around opening time and when you graduate they may just offer you a bag. Hey...anything is possible. You only know if you try! Best of luck.
