Almost Done, Ready, Maybe, I Hope So!

     I am planning on a soft opening of my new antique mall this Saturday, June 2nd. I have one dealer who has not moved in, I have part of my stuff in and the rest is at the old shop across the street. That is a long story, for another day. The new mall is clean, neat and full of fun and wonderful treasures. I am waiting for the new outside sign, I hope it will arrive today or tomorrow. June 1st was the order date for it's delivery. I am excited to see it go up there. The phone is getting moved tomorrow and Saturday at 10:00, I will officially open the doors to the public for the first time. I hope some of you can come see me and Sissy and the new mall soon. We will always leave the lights on and you are always welcome. Come set a spell, take your shoes off ,and please, please, spend some money shopping. I promise to get pictures and more of a real story soon. It has been a long haul but is almost there. Love and best wishes from My Blog to Yours. Richard

Richard it looks wonderful.I just caught up on your last post and you have had your hands full indeed. I wish you many many sales in that fresh clean space. It is sad that vintage and antique do not sell as well as they used to. I think eBay ruined it. hugs, olive

Oh, Richard, it looks wonderful. You must be so excited! I wish I could see it.

June 2nd is Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, so you chose a good day to start.

Wow it looks great! I am amazed at all you've accomplished in a short period of time! I like the angled door entryway! It looks like a good location and should catch the eyes of those passing by!
Good luck and I hope everything else falls into place as needed!

Hi Richard, I know we are not to familiar with each other but I do want to say I hope your new place works out real well. I must say when I'm out and browsing antique stores I love when the owners say hello and what is your desires from the past! makes me want to get to know them all the more. I hate the way the new generation hardly pays attention today! We need them to hold on to what we all value! If we are lucky there will be a few who will carry on someday! Best of luck to you!

Hi Richard,

I keep intending to write and see how you are doing! I have missed you and then I read your blog post about all the things that are keeping you so busy! Now I understand.

I took a couple weeks away from blogging too. Life gets overwhelming and you just have to prioritize things. Unfortunately, blogging just doesn't rank very high on the list when life throws you some fast balls, you know?!!!?

So you have a new antique shop address!? And you are the proprietor too!

Well friend, I am a true believer in everything happens for a reason so I am sending you well wishes on your "new" business adventure. I think you will do extremely well in the new space! It looks beautiful from the photos you have shown.

Best wishes and I am going to get down there some day and visit you in your shop.

(Maybe Sissy will give me a tour of the manse too!)

xoxox
Embrace the change!
You are going to be a
huge success in this new spot. I just KNOW it.
