It was a regular morning like any other except this morning I am supposed to have chronic no shows come and pick up items they said they wanted to buy. The first one actually came. The next one is due in a couple of hours. I am thinking he will come too, but no matter what, I am ahead of the day already.
When I was a landlord years ago I leaned something. Be nice and gracious and understanding and people would want to live in my spaces. And so I am doing this with my antiques and collectibles online sales too. I am often stood up or have folks try and re-negotiate at the last minute but I try and stay focused, positive and nice and often find people have all kinds of things going on that don't have anything to do with me so being all of those things can sometimes result in the sale after all. One down and one to go.
