Well I really did it!! I bought Helen's Hobbies in Torrance, CA. Helen made me an offer I couldn't refuse and, with the urgings of my sweet DH, I did it. And then I promply developed a migraine that lasted a few days. So finally I've crawled out from my fog and it's finally sinking in. OMGosh! I'm going to open a store! And not just a store, a stitching store! This has been my dream forever. I have ALOT to learn. I already know how to run a buisness on the financial side, I am in accounting and I'm an office manager for a successful home builders/interior design company. We have alot to do and plan. I am not keeping the same location due to high rent costs. I'll keep everyone posted on opening day & location. Thank you everyone who gave me encouragement while I was deciding, your comments are so appreiciated.
