Yippee...ask and ye shall receive!

Hello, my friends!
I've been fretting that the things I have on the floor of our little consignment gallery are too trendy. Yes...very cool and quirky...but that doesn't always transfer into sales.
So...you can imagine how happy and excited I am to have TWO lovely households coming in. Tomorrow a big house full of furniture comes in that I have shared earlier pictures of in one of my prior blogs.
You remember how freaked out I was about going to a house yesterday to do a full appraisal? I had myself completely wound up over details I should have searched out instead of jumping to conclusions due to lack of information.
All turned out well thank heavens and I found that I will receive that beautiful home full of gorgeous furniture on Monday.
Am I excited about working on my day off? No of course not. But you have to make hay while the sun shines and in FL that is during 'season'.
Getting one house full of furniture is always a challenge to set up on the floor. Getting another larger household of items just a few days later is a WHOLE lot more of a challenge.
I'm up for it...arranging the furniture on the floor is my favorite part of my job. I surely will miss my wonderful hubby who was always so willing to help me with placement.
Tomorrow will be another first of things I must do to run our business...you don't really have a lot of time to think about what you need to do to survive. I was going to say thrive...but believe me...in retail...thriving is long gone!
I'll figure it out. I'm trying to get in better and more useful furniture on the floor. I'm I just put a catchy ad in a local consignment store shopper. I'm working on getting more local artisans into the gallery also.
All we can do is keep on keepin' on...right my friends.
I'll be posting pics of the lovely new merch soon!
Stay sparky my peeps!
