Professional Summary
I realized I had a huge passion for unique vintage pieces of furniture and art almost 30 years ago when I started selling my found items in regular garage sales at my home. I progressed from garage sales to being a vendor with a shop and, finally, to owning my own business.  I am saddened to find that after years of operating successfully at my current location, the building that houses my shop has been sold and I am going to have to close my business. I have so much to offer within this niche market, and I look forward to growing with my next adventure.

Excellent customer development and retention

Creative marketing and display skills

Outstanding knowledge of vintage/antique furniture trade

Successful business proprietor

Proven ability to negotiate pricing and close sales.

Extensive cash handling and point of sale experience.
