Like everyone, I sat on the edge of my computer chair waiting to see what havoc Hurricane Irene was going to have on our friends on the East coast recently. In the aftermath I was hurting for everyone whose life was turned upside down by this natural disaster. I am truly sorry for your losses if you happen to be one of those souls that was in Irene's path. I am curious to know, however, if anyone has heard of any markets sustained damage in those states hit so hard. I never read anything in the news. I live in St. Louis, home of the beautiful Gateway Arch... Years ago I had a booth in an antique mall in Joplin, Missouri. When their city was devastated by a tornado this year I was thinking about all the fine flea markets and antique malls they have down there and how hard it is to recover from not only personal losses but your loss of income and livelihood as well. My husband Jim and I owned an antique mall for a short time - cut short when we lost it in the great flood of 1993- so I know how hard it can be to battle back. But we are nothing if we in this business are not resilient.
