The Most Difficult Year of All

A MOST DIFFICULT YEAR ... Time passes so quickly, and there is always so much to do.

The difficult first:    Early March, 2015, Annis suffered an aneurysm stroke and passed within seconds.   
                                    A few months later, Lochinvar passed due to congestive heart failure.

     A most difficult year.  Throughout all the stages and months of grieving,  the pet Conure parrot helped me well.  And, yes, I'm finally accepted the loss.   Takes a long time to change from we and us, to me and mine.  

     Life does continue, though.   We'd already made the decision to move from The Antique Center of Texas and locate entirely within the Antiques and Interiors at the Pavilion, located at 2311 Westheimer.  So, the move was up to me.  A couple of months of  reducing display space, and a whirl wind month of  moving sales.    The shop was  officially closed at the end of July, 2015, at the former location, and firmly established in the Antique Pavilion in a little over 1,500 sq ft.  

     Of course, that's not all of the story.   Way to much merchandise to move and display properly in just a few weeks, so I packed a large inventory and had it moved to two storage units.    In the ensuing period, I've managed to empty one unit, and the second unit is down to only about  a fourth full.

     There's ample space to display at the Antique Pavilion.   A large section for bronze, ivory, art glass, religious, military, medicinal, Asian, tools, content books and decorative books, furniture,  "guy stuff", etc.   

     An antique estate linen boutique housed in its own area, featuring hankies, guest towels, lace, fabric and metallic trims, napkins, table clothes, purses, christening dresses, quilts, clothing, sewing collectibles, and much, much more. 

     A separate area for fine jewelry and high end costume jewelry.  Fine porcelains, chandeliers, maps, furniture, unusual items like large antique knife sharpener wooden cases,  fine mahogany jelly viscosity tester, antique English book press, sterling and silver plate, and the list continues ...

     Also an area devoted entirely to fine art.    Selections include oil paintings, watercolors, lithographs, mixed media, and very high quality bronzes.  Including placements by local artists.

     Yes, it sounds like I'm "Superman" to whip all this together!    The rest of the story:    I've hired an assistant, MANUEL (Manny) FUENTEZ.   Experienced in antiques and display, with a solid background in fine art.   Without his assistance, I'd never live long enough to accomplish what is now a great looking shop, with great antiques, collectibles, and fine art.

     So, my friends and clients, now is the time that life has re-started, and I welcome you to visit the Antique Pavilion at your convenience to view the miraculous changes and displays that are now exhibited.

Approach to much stock to move and show appropriately in only fourteen days, so I stuffed a substantial stock and had it moved to two stockpiling units. In the resulting time frame, I've figured out how to purge one unit, and the second unit is down to just about a fourth full.

Keeping old stuff that has been aged by the time can be a drag. Because you will have to furnish it in order to make it look new again. And for those who had been severely aged or damaged at the time went on, you will have to restore it. And we all know that the restoration process is very costly. Because you will have to seek for tools and equipments that will be needed in order to make the stuff whole again.
