My Boutique is one step closer to opening!! YAY!

I found out that my favorite thrift store is closing down in two weeks, maybe sooner. I was saddened about it at first. God has turned this in my favor however as I was told the racks were for sale as well. For those of you who don't know me, I've been planning on opening my boutique. This is the perfect opportunity as the items I normally would buy for this would cost me hundreds of dollars to obtain I got for $60.

I'm going to a lady's storage on Monday as well as she was setting up shop in a really bad area and it didn't go well for her. I did give her some advice as to doing the demographics check before starting something like that. Especially in the area we live in. She has name brand clothing for $3 per piece as she is just wanting to get rid of them and cut her losses.

She also told me all the racks and hangers and all including the cashier machine she would give me for a couple hundred dollars. After I hung up with her I felt like God is making a huge move in the direction I've been praying about. I'm also waiting on the people that I got the racks from earlier as they have 3 display cases that I need to get from them. Exactly the number I need for my boutique!! This isn't luck, readers, this is God's hand doing an amazing work in my life. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for being so wonderful and finding everything for me just in my price range.

I'm so excited I had to get on here just to fill you guys in on what I've been up to lately. I feel alive again! I have something to work towards and it is just over the horizon. I can see it. I can feel it. I can breathe it.

If you have been hoping and praying for something to come through in your lives remember that although patience is a virtue - one that I do not possess - God does answer prayers. In His time. I almost made the mistake of giving up and just paying full price for the fixtures. Displays like I need average about $500 per piece. The racks are $200 each. Now, with all these blessings windfall, I can use that towards my lease fund. God is an AWESOME God!

Can we praise the Lord!!! I'm walking on cloud NUEVE!! God Bless you all. :)
