Working hard at the shoppe...

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am back in the shopkeeping business. I took over management of the Old City Hall Shoppes at the beginning of the month. My look is different from my predecessor's, so things are changing quite a bit. We've been rearranging to better use the space in the hallway for displaying merchandise. This is a shot of the hall, next to the sales counter. It's starting to get that cozy look I like. My mom and dad have been a huge help. And my hubby too...he got the sound system in the place working again. I spent the day today listening to big band music while doing the bookwork. Since I thought I was never going to run an antique store again, I had pretty much sold all the stock I had....there was less left than I thought. I have a large space in this store, and it's looking too bare. So you know what that means....I'm on a big treasure hunt for new stock at the right price! I went to an auction last weekend and found these beauties:
I still need many larger pieces of furniture, but maybe I'll have good luck this weekend and find a few that fit the bill and the budget.
