Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to all. Elfie and I had a
very quiet and relaxing day. Talked to my family
on the phone and got a little work done.

The Next Big Move, The Factory Antique Mall in Verona

 A couple of weeks ago I was purchasing a few items
out at The Factory Antique Mall in Verona. I was having
a conversation with Jason, the manager, when he was checking
me out about the fact that I was a dealer and had a couple of
spaces in Queen City Marketplace, I was trying to get a better
price on my items. He asked if I would be interested in coming
in to The Factory, a prime space had just opened up.
 The Factory is the largest Antique Mall in the US, I think. It is
just off 81 and gets a lot of traffic. I researched a couple of other
Antique Malls and decided that I needed more exposure, not just
the downtown traffic, so I took the plunge. This is a big move for
me, the last time I was in to Antique Malls was in Richmond at
the West End Antique Mall and The Chippenham Antique Mall.
 The rent is low, the space is 10 x 10 and I am on isle or street  14
close to the cafe, which is closer to the front. Prime Area!!!

The Factory takes 10% of your sales, they pay you on the 1st and the 15th and email
you when you sell something. A pretty sweet deal.

I moved in yesterday, an all day event, and decorated for Christmas. The open
house is Sunday. Some items I pulled from QCM but most of the items came
from home. Cross your fingers that this goes well, hope I have made a smart move.
I now have an Ebay Shop, and Etsy Shop, three spaces at Queen City and one at The
Factory all under the name Margaret McElroy Interior Design.
