THE WAITING GAME.....we have ordered a big pile of desert primities from TURKEY... they are on the water now and heading for customs in virginia..... we just got told it will be intensively searched by customs.... the pile is about a half a semi...including 150 olive oil jars....very breakable, not insured,
our customers seem so interested in this....i ordered from my couch after talking dh into it.... i ordered from pictures ....the connection was nice even tho the main man spoke no english.... my hope is to be able to sell lots of this to other dealeers.... i realy like wholesale and am trying to get it going again.....
in this new world where most of my antique knowledge is now worth little....and the wonderful group of antique dealers i used to sell to are long gone...
where god's in his heaven and all's right with the world
