CLEANOUT — Rachel Follari of Beacon last weekend assisted her 95-year-old grandmother in selling thousands of items of clothing, shoes, hats, gloves and purses she collected over “70 years of compulsive shopping” before moving from a Queens apartment to a senior community in Poughkeepsie. “What you see is probably about 1/16th of what we have in storage,” said Follari. She plans to have another sale on Grace Street on May 22. (Photo by Allen Alter)
