Goodbye to My Antique Booth

Sigh...I really wanted to keep my booth going.  Although I've done well with it, I've accepted the fact that it's really difficult to find reasonably-priced antiques in Montana.  They are not plentiful and when you find some, they are pricey.  Turning a profit in this environment is not easy.  I've sold quite a bit and my booth was so empty...without items to replenish it with, I didn't see the point.  My last day was yesterday.  In preparation for the closing, I had a 1/2 price sale and almost everything flew off the shelves.  I was able to walk out with just a couple of boxes of stuff yesterday afternoon when I moved out.  I've had to leave a few larger pieces in there until my husband can help me move them this weekend.  I've Craigslisted those items at deep discounts in hopes that I won't have to move them myself. 

The owners and those that run the shop there have been amazing to me.  I am so grateful and I've had a ton of fun.  I also met a great new friend, Jamie, who I'll definitely stay in touch with.

Onward and upward!!!
