    Looks as if they are selling things separately to me, not as a whole( altho'I'm sure they would like to do it that way). Would be nice to live closeby to take advantage of a closeout sale! You checking it out?

    I know this store. The lady that owned it died suddenly. She was a town treasure and her shop is a town landmark. A master seamstress that stayed in her shop every day and sewed. Any part you needed for a vintage Singer she had it. Some of her notions were still in the original first packaging. I loved her store and if not busy she would tell me stories of her life.

    I was reading the description and wondering where this was, then saw the pics and realized that I had been there before (after the original owner passed away). Sad to see they're going out of business now.

    So - is the store being sold 'as is' OR are contents being sold bit by bit? It's hard to tell from the ad.

    I could write a check---I gotta box full of 'em! :-P


    On the serious side, sad to hear of her passing. I hope someone will see that ad and do her right by it.

    The thing that keeps playing in my head is can I buy the entire lot take what I want and flip it and come out ahead.

    My wife and I have been talking about whether it would be worth while to make a cash offer and I am wondering how long would it take to unload it for a profit.

    :lol: :lol: I dont think I will have to worry about whether I can do it or not. I am not tying that much money up into anything right now I dont care how good of a deal it is!!!

    Especially after spending what I did on the bike I am getting built for me.

    But its nice to dream out loud!!

    Let's face it, if you kept lots, it would take longer to make a profit! Supply and demand, eyes bigger than tummy, ect! I would love to do it, but I already have some stuff for sale.

    Go for it! Make an offer, im sure they will work with you. Maybe the family has no interest in taking over the store and will negotiate?

    I doubt it's the store building or land, it's too valuable a property where it's at to sell for $75,000. Smack dab in the middle of town right in the town square. I would think so anyway. The shop is closed every time I go by there so I guess it's buy all or nothing.
