This is a very weird and unique business that I am in, and like any other occupation it becomes a small world and all the players know each other and have a great time together. We are also each others best customers. I had 2 people in the shop the other day, that I really like and enjoy, and they told me a story that I just had to share with you. I will let them tell it in their own words.
Great talking to you yest. Here is a pic of the fireplace we spoke about. The story goes that Tom and Peter( dealer @second hand rose & maybe still teresa's?) were attending the same auction in the spring. Tom bought a organ for $5. By the end of auction, buyers remorse & what in the **** am I going to do with this thing set it. He sold it to peter for $15, maybe $20. By fall or a little later (maybe christmas season) I was shopping @ Second Hand Rose and fell in LOVE with this fireplace mantel. I went back Sunday @ closing time and Kris Hart was loading it into her vehicle to take home because sale was over. Tom bought it for me. A few monthes later we were talking with Peter & found out that he sold the organ that he bought from Tom to Kris & they made a fireplace mantel out of it & it was the beloved fireplace mantel that we purchased from Kris! One piece, full circle, completely repurposed. Welcome to our life as dealers. haha. Hope your sale was fabulous (and $$$). Talk to you soon. Tom and Lori.
