Recently I blogged about moving into a new antique mall.
I loved my space and the timing was perfect.
Sadly - after 2 months... I was losing too much money and didn't feel
I could continue hanging on until there could be a turnaround.
But I had felt God was in it - what do I do with that?
Well....during those 2 months - a girlfriend of mine who loves to go
to auctions but has never been a 'dealer' decided to move in too.
She took a big room and is so excited about this new
venture in her life - a welcome diversion for her.
And turns out she's a 'natural' - as I knew she would be.
So perhaps following God's leading was just a stepping stone for me
and a big boost for a friend...
Just as I gave my notice that I'd be moving out - I received notice
from another local mall that they now had space for me.
Really? Wasn't expecting that! And just in time for the holidays!
It's a challenging space - with no walls. But a quick trip to an auction
(there just 'happened' to be one down the road the very week I needed one)
yielded a tall dresser that will provide a wall illusion.
The dresser begins my booth - the little blue legged table is the end.
Once you're in the 'booth' itself - it does feel cozy...
I have big things in place - 'smalls' will come later this week hopefully...
And where might this new mall be? It's the Quentin Antique Shoppe.
It's super cute in a sweet little village (perfect for taking a stroll)
with a very nice historic restaurant right across the street.
And did I mention the owners are a delight?
Love her front Fall display...
How will I do here? Again - don't know. But I'm just loving this
journey and all the lessons and encounters along the way.
Stay tuned... we'll see how this goes...
