New Beginnings

Happy New Year!!
To a new year and to new beginnings. I am toying with the idea of adding something new to our little store. Our little downtown area is seriously lacking one major thing... an antique mall. Other successful small towns have at least 2 of them, making their area more appealing to visit. I constantly am giving directions to our one and only antique mall in Newnan which is about 2 miles away from the Historic District. So my bright idea.....
is to turn our upstairs storage area, about 2000 sq. feet, into a French Brocante (or flea market). My plan is to reinstall the original grand staircase that was taken down a few tennants back....leading our customers up into the cupola and into about 15+ booths. So there is my New Year's Resolution... stay tuned to see how this story unfolds.

I am so excited about the idea. I already have my booth space planned out in my head!

You are so right. I think this would pull in so many new customers for you. Best of wishes! PS- thanks for helping to get me in from the cold......

That's a great idea! I shop at the Flea a lot, but this would only make me frequent the story more often!
