well, that's a wrap...

just got a call from the antique mall I am in...
and they asked me to leave by the end of the month...
I have made my booth rent every month but one, and came close that month...

they never called to complain about anything...
when we went into the mall, everything was great...
they never said a word to me before...

so, have no idea where their heads are...
and if they are that unpredictable...
I don't want to be there either...

they have been so hard on Rebecca lately...
the booths around my booth literally went untouched for at least 6 months...
we change mine up at least twice a month...
and I am being asked to leave...
I think someone wants a bigger booth...

this mall has tossed some of the best dealers around here...
dealers that were selling big ticket items...
so with that...
and thanks for listening...
comes a new beginning somewhere else...

looking for that new door...

Tete! I am so sorry...what is up with that!?
There is a new booth to the right of you in the corner, all black and white.
If you pay the rent why on earth would they ask you to leave? and it is not like you have a spot right up front? I can play dumb next time and ask where your booth went...since I usually buy something off of you.

When I was there last week they said they had a lot of booths selling bigger ticket items? Maybe they want more furntiture.
they should be happy they had the space rented and payed for every month.

I hate january...seems the holiday spirit is long gone and the bad news starts rolling in.

In my short lived vendors mall experience I saw a lot of biased treatment. I am so glad to be out of it. I hope you can find something new. Thngs will work out. You are way to imaginative and creative for it not to. Blessings!

Totally their loss, not yours. I'm glad you're taking the higher road with the "when one door closes another opens" attitude! :) This too will happen with you I'm confident!

Well, THAT sucks!!! What the heck are they thinking? I'm betting you are right and someone wants more space...out with the OLD and in with the NEW! It never fails, does it? Are you going to try and find a new space now? Can you share a space with Rebecca somwhere else?

Good luck...let me know what happens. xo Diana

That's too bad, Tete! Sounds like they are giving you, and many others, the run around! Well, they don't deserve to have you there. I just know that there is another spot waiting for you, that you will shine in! I just left my booth last month. The owner is a real nutcase (I bet they are related, haha!), and I just didn't sell well there. I do alot better on Etsy! Hey, have you thought of selling on Etsy? You really should give it a try, you can charge more, and not even have to leave your house! That settles it, you are opening an Etsy shop, my dear!!

Oh Tete, that's awful! Yes, sounds like someone has their eye on your space! I'll say a prayer and keep my fingers crossed that you find and even better spot soon!

awww...that's the pits...I know you were not too happy after that phone call. well...here's a hug...{{ }}. And now I will say I am SO glad that God calls the shots and HE always works things out for OUR best...even though it looks like someone else is gettin' the royal treatment...unh unh...ALL things work together for good...so sometimes we have to hit that bump in the road, and get bounced around a bit, but it will settle down again...:-) Come Spring it will be nice to look back and in retrospect say...God knew what HE was doing all along....just taking care of Tete... ! Keep your chin up girl! xoxoxoxoxo

I'm so sorry to hear this, Tete. They obviously don't know a good thing when they see it. Their loss, sweetie. The door to your new journey will open soon. You just wait.....God has big plans for you! :)
