Closing Down

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

For the last two years I have had a space at a local Antique Gallery where I work on Sundays. This is coming to an end for me this month. The owner is moving and didn't tell me. I no longer feel good there, and once trust is gone , for me it is over. Because I didn't know she was moving the business, I acquired a lot of new old inventory. 

Yesterday was slow and nothing of mine sold. I started to pack in earnest and will do so daily until I need a truck and a friend to help me transport the shelves and the things that are just too big and heavy. Closing down is difficult both physically and emotionally. 

I am bringing what I can to the finished room atop my garage. I have more stuff than room but I am just doing what I can one day at a time. Closing down.......................

Hi Sheila... at the end of the day, not much more you can do but pace yourself and take one day at a time.

I understand what you are going through...One door closes, and another one will open.   Take good care of yourself, that is what matters most.  A

Hi Sheila soon the process of closing down will be complete.  Soon. Finding time to take care of you and relax is a good thing in the midst of all the changes. I know sometimes it's hard to do but it's really important.

Morning Sheila.

Knowing you like I do, you are not one to just give up.  Open up your own store, either a brick and mortar or online.

Hi Sheila,
I know that is a LOT of work for you. I hope you can get some help so it is not quite so physically and emotional draining for you!

You're absolutely right, Sheila - one day at a time is all you can do.

As for your trust - like you, I feel that once broken, it's never the same. I would be doing exactly what you're doing as well.
