Last Sunday...........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

This is my last Sunday at the Antique Gallery where I have had a space for roughly two years. The building was sold and the owner of my business didn't tell anyone she was moving and when. As a result I continued to accumulate merchandise for the fall and winter I never would have bought had I known. So I am done today. I have until the end of the month to clear my space but most of my things are gone and sometime this week my neighbor with a truck will help me move any remaining large pieces. Hopefully there won't be much. I sold something yesterday from Facebook and now I am right down to it. It is a bittersweet day for me. I kind of enjoyed working here and I am good at it. 

So now I will be selling completely online and without any overhead, I should be in better shape. I have a finished space above my detached garage and while I am full now, once I clear some merchandise it should work very well for me. Fingers crossed that today is a good sales day but no matter what, this is my last Sunday.

What a lousy way to treat you. I like Nina, think you will ultimately be better off without a storefront.

Hi Will. I sold a couple of small lamps to another vendor for a song but I don't have to move them. TY     Sheila

Hey Sheila you've got a perfect setup with the room in your garage. I can see people coming by on your 'sale' days and enjoying browsing through your collection.  How about branding your self with some kind of name about antiques?  I'll think on that.....I can see you becoming 'the place' to stop and 'YOU' are the lady with the best offerings in town.  Fun!

Hi Anna. I call my space Garage Sale Antiques. When I did a garage sale it didn't work because people just drive by and despite great and large signage it wasn't good. I wasn't dragging everything out. Now I advertise on Facebook and by and large the people who ask after something either want it or not. TY     Sheila
