FUN DAY ANTIQUING...
My store 10 years ago was in a little town called Morgantown, PA. The store was connected to The Mill Property Antique Mall.....we were at the end of the building and it was a tiny little room with an office that I used as a workshop. I really loved it there and met so many wonderful friends in that tiny room. Many still shop with us - and some I have become bestest friends with. You know how they say you can't go back home.....well I go back home often...and today was one of those days. Sharon and I went antiquing at the antique mall. Found some good treasures to take to the store this week too. BUT - geez....when I go into the room where our old store was...( they now have closed off the outside entrance and broke thru the wall so you can walk in from the antique mall...when we were there we had our own entrance.) Anyway....what memories flooded me today when I visited that room....it is SO VERY HARD to believe our store was there....it is so small...but back then I thought it was BIG !! I stood in the room and remembered how horrid it was when we rented it and how hard Tony and I worked to make it great....and you know....I do think it was great. Nine years we did business there until we knew we needed to grow. I tried to keep both stores open...(that lasted 9 months) - dear me that was not fun at all! I will admit I was a bit homesick for a minute or two with so many wonderful memories tugging at me.
Today was a fun day...we had a nice lunch at a nearby tea room...and then went to Michael's ....I HAVE TO STAY OUT OF THAT PLACE !!!!
