After graduating from UNL in the early ‘80s with a degree in Sociology, Sarah Gauger was unsure of her next step.  Her mother, Jan Gauger, asked her to help open a consignment furniture store and help run her clothing store, One More Time.  After several years, Sarah found she loved working in resale and that she had found her “next step”.  One More Time has recently been rebranded to omt! Divine Women’s Resale and Sarah is excited to show off their new look and all the fabulous fashions omt! has to offer.  She has also expanded to include new accessories such as jewelry, scarves and leggings to complement their resale fashions.  Their inventory changes daily and Sarah is always excited to see what designer goodies come in the door next.

Tell me a little about your family.
My husband, Charlie Duerschner and I have been married 22 years and have twin sons, Jon and Chris, who are seniors at Lincoln High School.  They all pitch in, mowing lawns, cleaning gutters, even building display pieces for omt!

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
The biggest turning, by far, was the birth of my sons 17 years ago. We only found out we were having twins seven days before they arrived.  Talk about being turned on our heads! We’ve hardly stopped to catch our breath since.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Sometimes nothing at all! It’s nice to just be home. I love to get out on Lincoln’s trails and go for a run.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I’ve sung in my church choir for almost 30 years and I love to knit felted slippers for family members.

What are you the most proud of?
I know it’s cliché, but my sons, Chris and Jon.  They are both talented musicians and attend the International Baccalaureate program at Lincoln High.  They work much harder than I ever did in high school.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
“Life is good, be happy now, let it go.”   Otis Young, Minister First Plymouth Church.

What is the one goal you would most like to accomplish?
I would like broaden the awareness of resale in Lincoln as a fun and environmentally green way to shop local.

How would your friends describe you?
I think they would call me friendly, hardworking and a bit quirky.

Which talent would you most like to have?
I would love to be more creative.  It would help me in my marketing endeavors.

What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
I just finished reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.  I try and keep up with the “One Book, One Lincoln” reads.

What is your favorite movie?
So many…I loved The Kings Speech but also love classics like North by Northwest and Rear Window.

What is your favorite TV show?
30 Rock is great and Modern Family when I can catch it.

What is your favorite Lincoln restaurant?
We have so many good ethnic restaurants in Lincoln.  I like La Mexicana on 17th St and The Oven.

If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be?
