Hansen: Omaha's best bargain shopper and the 100th pair of $1 shoes
Leonard, 29, who grew up as a tomboy in the Czech Republic, has more than an affinity for shoes. On her Sunday missions she's also bought dozens of dresses, jackets and pants. She sells the excess on eBay and Etsy.

Omaha's best bargain shopper shows up five minutes early, dutifully taking her place in line behind a gaggle of sweatpants-wearing college girls who do not know the Legend of Veronika Leonard.
Veronika is not wearing sweatpants, even though she got off work at 3 a.m. and it's now 10:55 a.m. on a frigid Sunday morning. She is wearing black faux-leather pants, a green faux-leather jacket, pink gloves and a purple scarf wrapped tightly around her neck. She's rocking a pair of killer, four-inch gray booties on her feet.
