Changes Are Coming - Moving to the Queen City

posted Feb 14, 2017, 8:11 AM by Jason Spangler Santeeswapper
In the summer of 2016 my family moved to Charlotte NC taking me away Southeastern North Carolina where I had lived for going on 18 years.  In moving I decided I would leave my two antique mall booths since they were firmly established and I didn't really have anyplace to put all that inventory!  Well the truth is you can't really run an antique mall business if you walk away from your booth and don't manage the store.  Sure the folks at the show will handle the day to day sales but you'd be surprised how quickly people browsing in your store can mess things up and before long it looks like a tornado came through. 

So this week I have a meeting with an antique mall owner here in Charlotte to see about consolidating my inventory down to one location.  The rent is going to run a little bit more (even with the 2 combined stores) but going forward if I'm going to keep an antique mall booth this is probably the smart move.  I don't have anything confirmed just yet so I won't go out on a limb with details but suffice to say it's percolating and maybe by the end of February 2017 I'll have it all worked out.
