Linda Barron left Vietnam on June 26, 1970 for a new
life in the U.S. with her 2-month-old daughter, Loan, and her husband Ken
Anderson. She thought Los Angeles was a dream world. Everything was so bright and
full of lights. She slept through the night for the first time. In Vietnam, the
nights were full of noises including gunfire, exploding grenades and distant cannons
that would light up the sky like fireworks. The United States was a strange land
to her and she felt like a baby trying to learn the new ways of life.
1985 Linda's family moved to Trinidad to fulfill her dreams with her two children,
Loan and Lynn. The family bought an empty building now known as Mountain Liquor-General
Store and Linda's Alterations. Unknown new adventures were ahead of them. With hard
work, determination and Linda's background as a seamstress, she now celebrates her
25th year as a family-owned business. Linda would like to thank the community of
Trinidad/Las Animas County, her many friends and family for their continued support.
"We are here to serve you and hope to continue to serve you for many years to come.
Even though I spent my youth in war-torn Vietnam, they say that – Home is where
the heart is – and my heart is in Trinidad/Las Animas County, Colorado."
