Would you be kind enough to give me a leg up with the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Gloves and shoes; she had a passion for gloves; but her own daughter, her Elizabeth, cared not a straw for either of them.
not care a straw = to hold one/something in no esteem; to defy one/something as not worth your steel
Thanks for your efforts.
You already have the answer. She is not interested in ether one, gloves and shoes!
