Arbor House is Going to the FLEA MARKET

I had previously been contemplating opening a new shop with a new business partner.  At the last moment the ideal spot fell through, literally the building needed too much work. 

While one door closes another opens.  I mentioned to family and friends that I have been contemplating going back to work.  No sooner had I spoke the words, several job opportunities opened up that I am pursuing.  Now that all three of my children will be in school it will make it somewhat easier for me to work full time.  I do enjoy working and I am excited to be going back to a full time job.  Mr. M. has some reservations about how we will be able to juggle it all and I do know it will be hard work at the beginning trying to balance it all out, but I have confidence in myself and my family, we can do it! 

I have an abundance of furniture and accessories in my garage/shed/house from my last shop, so I decided to take it to the flea market.  Remember the last flea market where I found the chandelier and tins, that is the flea market I am going to sell the rest of my treasures.



I am going to work the Flea Market with my friend and potential business partner Patrice and my two sisters Tiera and Iesa, I am sure it will be a weekend full of laughter. We plan to decorate just as if it were a shop, very much like my home, with lots of white furniture, home decor and accessories.


I have also contemplated etsy and have it set up along with a blog if I should decide to pursue that venture, but for now I am hoping to make some money for work clothes and have a fun day.  Wish me luck.

  6. Oh how I wish I could be at that flea market to buy some of your fabulous treasures! I'm sure you'll sell it all. :)
    I've been where you were, wondering whether I should go back to work or not. Unfortunately, there's just no opportunities here where I live, especially in this economy. I wish you all the luck with your new endeavors! I know you can do it, too! ;o)
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs ~ Jo
