T-shirt sales won’t be enough to save her home from foreclosure, but Gladys Solomon figures she has to try.
Solomon, 74, began selling tees featuring a religious message after two deputy sheriffs last month came to her door with a foreclosure notice.
“He said you got 20 days,” said Solomon, a retired nursing assistant who has lived in a modest brick rancher on Prospect Street in the south end of Lancaster since 1996.
Facing a possible sheriff’s sale, Solomon ordered 100 T-shirts online for $595. They are white with 105 words in black script describing Jesus as “the only true friend you’ll ever have.”
Solomon is asking $20 per shirt. Through word of mouth, she sold 15 as of Wednesday.
