As you are reading this, I want you to think of Indians doing a dance for rain. It is DRY and the ground is CRACKED and they need RAIN BAD.
That is how I feel about a space for the consignment sale! I am obviously not doing the right dance as I still haven't found one, but if someone knows the right dance to do, please let me know as I will dance a jig if that's what it takes.
For those that are new to the blog, I run a children's consignment sale twice a year for two weeks. It is really big and we have now grown to the point that we rent around 10,000 sq. feet for the two weeks that we have the sale. The last 5 sales we have been fortunate enough to have the same space but they just leased it so we are back to finding a new space again. You would think this would be easy with the amount of open space in our area, but many landlords HATE doing short term leases even though we have thousands of dollars to spend.
So, it is crunchtime...we have a lot of options that each cost a lot of money. A LOT OF MONEY. We are praying for the right space at the right price to reveal itself but when you are pushed against a deadline, sometimes it is hard to see those signs reveal themselves. Please pray for clarity of our minds, peace of mind as we spend A LOT of money on this space (whereever it might be) and the desire in the landlords hearts to be merciful and let us rent!! I am just really struggling because I really wish that the money we will have to spend could go to a church or school that could really use it and yet, it is very hard to find one of those organizations that will let us rent for two weeks.
Last but not least, if you are reading this and know of a commercial leasing agent that might be willing to work with us in the Rivergate/Goodlettsville/Hendersonville, TN area please leave a comment. Word of mouth never hurt anyone right?
