Wallach House Adventures Part 1

A few months back I shut down my case at the South County Antique Mall after a seven month test in which I only broke even one month. Very disappointing to say the least. At $65 a month for a case plus a 10% commission rate it's just hard to make money, especially when I price my pieces really reasonably. So I took a few months off from the case and just sold at flea markets and on eBay (foobar252). I was searching for a new home for my case in the meantime.
