Antiques aren't moving

February 11th, 2010 at 10:54 am

Last night I got my balance sheet from the antique store (where I am a dealer). I owe $92, so only $33 in merchandise sold. That's one of the worst months yet. I know that part of the problem is that North Carolina has been hit with unusually bad weather; I know the store has even been closed at times. I also know it will get better in spring.

I still have faith in our booth. It is a wonderful store in a very picturesque area, and the owners do everything they can to promote it. My sister and I are getting better and better at stocking it with garage sale finds. The problem is people just aren't buying. I'll see how spring goes before I make any decisions about pulling out.

I ALMOST bought a coke out of the vending machine the other day, but I resisted. I have not done any kind of eating out for 10 days now. 10 points!

As for the weather -- how often is it that I experience a blizzard AND an earthquake in the same day, and yet my story pales beside what's happening out East! What a deluge! All you folks out there stay safe and warm.
