This is a Business

I must remind myself that in order to stay in business, I must sell items.  Even when I am completely attached to something, I must move it along.  Sometimes it’s hard.

Heritage Square Antique Mall is having its Customer Appreciation night, tonight, October 7 from 6-10pm.  Dealers have been stocking their booths all week in preparation.  I have been there twice since Saturday.  Dealers will also be at the sale offering deals and moving inventory.  Oh yeah, there will be food too and prizes!

On my first visit to stock up for the sale, I sold a pair of chairs right off my cart.  They never made it in the booth.   The lady was so nice and I was happy to see them go home with her.  Then it hit me…what am I going to put in their place?!

So, I return today to stock a few more things and clean up the two spaces.  This is what it looked like when I arrived.

Then I met the cutest lady ever.  She was in search of storage.  She was a hip, young mom (like I thought I was but that was long ago).  Anyway, she left with the desk.  Yes, the desk that sits front and center in my booth!

Yikes!!  Again, the desk could not have landed in a better home, so I am thrilled for that.  I just have to dig deep, scour my storage, house, friends and get it restocked by 5:59 tonight!

Trust me, it is a good problem to have.  I never get to meet my customers, so that was pretty fun for me.

Not to worry, I do have a ton of stuff already in each booth.

If you are free and love a deal, you should shop Heritage Square Antique Mall tonight.  And if you are there, please stop by B-10 & B-20 and say hello!

Have a great weekend!

I can imagine it would be hard. But how lucky you are to have a business that you can poor your heart into! Good luck with the sale.
