We are gearing up for the wedding now, which is just under two months away, so I expect that this will cut moderately into the time we have to devote to blog writing and listings. We had our preliminary meeting with the bank last week and are now waiting to hear back from them as to arranging a meeting for Steph and I to explain the ins and outs of the business to them. We have also explored several other lending options and found that there are several different options open to us. So I am fairly confident that we can find something that works for us.
We have decided after working on the Nigeria inventory to revive the blog for this area and I am toying with the idea of listing some of the material from Lagos, just to see what the response is from collectors, as it would be nice to increase the cash flow, and I have a hunch that this material will perform better than Canada, especially if a deep offering is made that contains lots of the scarcer items and it is all properly described.
Over the weekend on Saturday night a got a call from my ex, which totally stunned me. It seems that she has been on her own journey and is finally ready to take responsibility for her part in the events that lead to the demise of that marriage. I am attending her graduation from the program that she has been enrolled in, so I am cautiously optimistic that she has found something valuable for her. We'll see.
