Taking a Big Leap of Faith !

I have been in retail since I was 17. Last October after being blamed for the poor economy I decided to follow my heart. I came home and discussed it with my husband who was disabled and on dialysis three times a week, He knew how happy it made me so I decided to go for it, I had been working full time as a manager in the same store for fifteen years. In between I was selling antiques. About 5 years ago I started selling jewelry at fairs festivals and craft shows on every day ,weekend,or vacation I had. I was doing well but by now my husband was in the hospital over 70 times in those 5 years. (I am not exaggerating).
I was like the man on the Ed Sullivan show that was spinning the plates without breaking them. I was caretaker,homemaker, wife,jewelry maker, and retail manager. I was exhausted. I was passionate about it all. But in Oct. (2013) I decided I was going to be the plate that broke. I gave my notice. It was scary giving up that guaranteed paycheck. But I got to spend 6 weeks with my husband and do my shows before I lost him the week before Christmas. I have no regrets for doing it.
Now I am focusing on my passion. I have regular ladies that follow me from show to show. It is very rewarding. I decided to start dying silk scarves. This has been so therapeutic during my grieving process. The colors make me so happy. The feedback has been great. I am booking more shows than ever and concentrating on my antiques. I have a co op spot at an Antique Market.
Last but not least is my philosophy. On my business cards I say "Where you can buy a lot for a little". The joy for me is making a lot of people happy not just one or two. In this economy no one should have to deliberate on whether they can buy a small gift for someone or themselves. I don't skimp on the quality and word of mouth has proven that.
Thank you all for your support and for dropping by !

    After being in retail since the age of 17 I decided to leave my job (Oct. 2013 )and follow my passion.Jewelry and Antiques ! My other motive was to spend time with my disabled husband. Six weeks later he passed away. He was my best cheerleader !
