We Bought A New Business

We did it! We took the less than 24 hours and bought a new business.

It's not just any new business. This business has beautiful trees, green grass, pretty moss and lines a long highway in the country.

It's an RV Park/Campgrounds/ and Trading Post.

It came complete with new neighbors like this dude. We like to call him, " Whitey." He visits us almost everyday and crosses the highway. It makes me very nervous to watch him cross.

The clean up is a lot of work. We've been mowing.

This is the inside of the old Bait Shop which we have been painting and are turning into a Tradin Post.  It's a fancy name for a convenience store, bait shop, gift shop, and camp store all in one.

We have so much cleaning to do. It is unbelievable but it is fun.

We got our first customers on the day we bought it. It's a blessing. We get to meet people from everywhere.  My nursery will have a 2nd location and be able to sell plants up there as well.

So to say we've been busy would be an understatement. The work on the houses is yet to be done and Winter is approaching and the business is set to open on Monday.

This chick is going to be one busy lady.

Painting, decorating, merchandising, planting, and selling all at once.

Not a bad life.

Happy Monday.

  1. Rhonda Thank You for the good wishes.

  2. What an exciting business, Valerie! You not only get the chance to earn a profit, but provide fun as well. It’s not surprising why you got your first customer the day you closed the deal. The place is a perfect site for camping.
