Yesterday was a really bad day. We received a phone call from the Real Estate Agent letting us know that the purchase that we have been waiting on has fallen apart. The acreage that we had truly fallen in love with will not be sold.
The Attorney that was working on the title search for us did some amazing work, but because of the age of the seller, and her family history there was very little documentation on past owners and possible heirs. They worked on this for almost 2 months to get us to a closing date. They utilized Ancestry.com and all kinds of other resources…they just couldn’t clear it up.
So…..that puts us back to the beginning of our journey, back to the search portion. It was really frustrating and disappointing. We both just spent the day in a foul mood and wanting to cry.
We’ll get where we are meant to be, of that we have no doubt. It’s going to take a little longer and a little more work, but we don’t give up. We’ve gone back to searching again for another parcel that we can buy…to find someone that wants our money. We will find it. The one that is meant for us will come along, and then it will be ours.
Meanwhile, we just keep working on our business and improving our selection and availability of wonderful hand made gifts.
Maria is a genius at sewing all sorts of items for gifts and practical use, even the practical use items are beautiful! I have been working a ton on a bunch of metal items. Keeping with my normal Blacksmithing and trying out some lost wax casting of brass. The brass hasn’t gone too well so far, but practice, practice, practice…
We’ve also applied for a small business grant through FedEx, they have created a series of grants for small business. If you are reading this, we’d appreciate your vote. There is no kind of sales obligation or cost to vote, We’d just really appreciate it, so that we can upgrade some equipment and streamline some processes.
Thank you to everyone who has read our blog so far. The journey continues as we continue to fight for our dream. Please vote on the FedEx grant contest, and feel free to share our link for it to anyone and everyone you know!!!
If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please contact us and we’d be happy to make something custom for you. We hope that you all have a wonderful week.
