Anyway, hope he enjoys his neg, it hurts him more than me... I'm certainly not losing any sleep over it, I have other things to lose sleep over... Not even sure why I mentioned it, It's just the cherry on the cake of my day.
Actually, no news today... There's really nothing to say, but I like the idea of journalling... I used to keep a regular journal all the time. But working 12 hour days got me out of the habit. Probably need to buy a notebook and start up again.
The cat is being vicious, the pug dog is being long-suffering, and I'm just being tired.
What a depressing post.
Sorry to anyone who had to read this...

Deb was not amused when she was taking something out to the dumpster and three of the local "characters" were diving through it. She really wasn't amused when they grabbed the box out of her hand. After that, we wouldn't let her go out there alone, and either Peter or I would go out with her.
She then apologised, because she thought I was exagerating about the substance abuse problem. She now definitely knows that I'm not. I'm not exactly sure what she saw, but I can imagine.
So, so glad to be out of that store....
Might be writing a few letters to congressmen about either legalizing gambling so they can control it or enforcing the laws they already have, but I won't have to deal with it in my face anymore. On the other hand, maybe I'll just let Karma take care of it... those guys do look like Karma's kicked them in the face a few times already...
Now that I'm through with my rant, I suppose I should talk about the ebay thing. As of November 4, I'm going to start listing again. I was going to start sooner, but I've spent the last 2 weeks working everyday, and I need a little time off.
I do have some great Staffordshire Pottery to list, Liberty Blue -colonial, full set of 8, and a model train, some everyday Gibson Pottery, and a few other nice little collectables.
I'm saying November 4 as the plan, but I may get it there sooner. Right now I'm so used to working like a demon, that the last day off I took made me a nervous wreck!
Regardless, when it's listed, I'll post a few picks here. Then I'll work on Getting the Google adwords set up, they should get some traffic. Wishing everybody well, Later...

Listed this great pair of table lamps today. From KRON, right now the only pair of table lamps from KRON that are listed as far as I can tell... although there are a whole passel of the siamese cat TV lamps, and one of the giant black panther mantle piece lamps... for quite a large price.
My pair, I'm starting at 19.95. Don't have the auction # handy, but if you go to the store http://stores.ebay.com/luckypennyfleamarket and click on the categories retro or collectables, they'll be right there... and if the shipping seems high, it's because they weigh close to 11 pounds. Not to mention there will have to be a huge box...
right now, I'm basically wasting my time. I should be doing the last of the packing here, but quite frankly, I'm tired! Can't wait till this is over and I can get back to listing all this stuff on ebay... later folks.

We've got some wonderful Figgjo Flint in the ebay store, not a full set, so I'm listing them piece by piece. Figgjo Flint is known nowadays primarily for restaraunt ware, but these are vintage to the 70's, and come from the turi-design ASTRID pattern... back when they were doing china for the home market...
Great pieces with camel, sienna and teal flowers... I'm not going to be too upset if I don't sell them, as I'd be perfectly happy to keep them at the house.
If you need a closer look at them, just click on the link.. http://stores.ebay.com/luckypennyfleamarket
The weather here today is kind of clouded over, and there's supposed to be rain later today... yep, it's fall in Texas.
Wish we had pretty autumn leaves here, but everything just gets muddy and brown...

well, I went ahead and listed the vending machine, hopefully, I'll be able to keep the Scammers at bay this time around... not a bad setup for under $600 if I say so myself. I know new they cost well over $3000...
don't know why He's selling them instead of trying to set them up somewhere, but that's his business isn't it?
Anyway, if you're interested go to http://stores.ebay.com/luckypennyfleamarket It's strictly a buy it now, immediate payment, local pickup only...
The truth is that I started a blog, and then we closed the actual store that the blog was about, because we started a new business plan. After I'd done a little number crunching, I figured out that the brick and mortar store was taking 10 hours a day and making 20% of my sales. That had to go.
So now we are almost exclusively an online market - selling mostly on ebay. You want to see ebay... http://stores.ebay.com/luckypennyfleamarket click there and it will take you straight to it.
Of course, the listings are down right now, I'm packing up the old store and that's taking up 16 hours a day, but I'll be at ebay full force starting November 1. We are also an ebay trading assistant, which means that I get to sell stuff for other people. That's always fun.
I don't have much else to say right now. Actually, I have a lot to say, but I'm too darned tired to do it. Time for me to go to bed and get some sleep.
But do drop by sometime soon, I should be telling you about some of the buying trips... and maybe even posting pics of some of the more remarkable auctions...
