Woman’s search for wayward vintage glove ends in Charleston

By Susan Shinn
Salisbury Post
We knew Sheri Belk would call eventually.
Belk, a second-grade teacher in Charleston, S.C., ended up with a vintage glove belonging to Tara Lowrance of Salisbury. The two had been standing next to one another during last month’s visit by George Clooney and Reneé Zellweger at the depot.
Lowrance, an extra in “Leatherheads,” was dressed in period attire for the meet-and-greet, including opera-length gloves.
Only problem was, Lowrance had so much for Clooney to sign that things started slipping out of her hands.
Belk offered to hold Lowrance’s glove because she had on a jacket with pockets.
After Clooney passed by, Belk said Monday, “Everybody just dispersed immediately.”
Belk and her 10-year-old daughter were ready for a bathroom break, since they’d been waiting in line for hours.
“We were right there on that fence,” Belk said. “It was just a fun thing.”
It was only later that Belk realized that she still had the glove.
Belk, who was visiting friends in Mooresville, planned to eventually do a bit of detective work to find the owner of the glove.
Turns out she didn’t have to.
When she walked into school on Monday, the secretary asked, “Are you the one with the glove?”
The Charleston Post and Courier, the Post’s sister publication, had also run an article about the missing glove.
Yes, Belk said, as a matter of fact, that was her.
“I was there and I have the glove,” she told her friend.
After calling the Post to get Lowrance’s name and number, Belk planned to get in touch with her.
No doubt Lowrance will be thrilled to get her glove back.
“That is pretty neat how something like that can happen,” Belk said. “It does work to put things like that in the paper.”Contact Susan Shinn at 704-797-4289 or sshinn@salisburypost.com.
