Consignment store offers more time with family

How did your business start?

I have been in construction and the oil field my entire life. Then just recently my beautiful wife and I had an addition to the family, a baby girl, Alysyn May Palm born May 7. At the time I was employed in the oil field. With a schedule of three to four weeks on and one week off, it began to wear on me quickly. So being fed up with having to leave my family, we decided to open this store. We chose consignment due to having lower overhead and a smaller bankroll.

What do you sell?

Furniture, clothing, antiques, collectibles, sporting goods, electronics and more.

What positive lessons did you learn during the recession?

You can work your life away to pay the bills. But paying the bills doesn’t pay for happiness.

What strategy do you use to hire good people?

No employees at this time.

What is your strategy for growth in the next year?

We have a sliding commission scale to create incentive to consign higher-quality items. We also are utilizing Internet selling tools as well as in store. We are also committed to honesty and integrity. In addition we will do our absolute best to ensure you get a fair, accurate price. We also have Facebook for news and feedback.

What is the best thing about running a business here?

Time with my family.
