New Year, New Lesson Plans!

ARTifacts, Art & Antique EmporiumJunk!  I love it!  So when my sister, Paige, suggested that we take the 2nd floor of her historic downtown building and turn it into an antique store I thought, “FUN!”   Then she said, “What about local art and antiques?”  Very cool idea, no?  We were huge fans of the shop local, live local campaigns sweeping the nation, even before it was hip.  It was a great plan.  She is the business mind, has the property just begging for something fun to be done with the space, and I needed a job!  PERFECT!

So, we got to work.  3 years later, here we are and I have learned so much about how to manage a business with over 40 art & antique vendors.  But what have I learned about art?  What about antiques?  TONS!  But there is so much still to learn.  Time to be a student again. «Read the rest of this article»
