I haven't written about what I am doing for a considerable period of time, mainly because I attempt to keep this blog on the topic of what has been referred to as simple, organic church. Another reason is because, for the past few years, I have considered myself to be unemployed due to disability. To be more specific, at one time, I put a lot of time into flea marketing, which spread out into selling via craigslist and eBay. A couple of years ago when I couldn't handle it, my son took over the eBay portion of it, and I did the stuff that had to be done during normal business hours when he was at work.
He had to make a decision last fall as to whether to stay in the Navy, and chose to leave as of this fall. His decision, along with it, was to begin an auctioneering business. To that effect, I went to auctioneering school a couple of months ago. He took two weeks of leave to go to auctioneering school the past two weeks.
Therefore, I wish to state that we have begun the business, which is named Prestige Auctions, LLC. We are beginning with an online auction of collectable coins, which is running via www.proxibid.com. We have 300 lots of mainly U.S. Coins, which will close as of May 1st. If that is something that interests you as a hobby or use collectable coins as a matter of investment/wealth preservation, I invite you to visit it. To that effect, we have a website for the business, www.prestigeauctions.us , and are on Facebook as Prestige Auctions, LLC, Norfolk, VA. Www.facebook.com/prestigeauctions .
Humorous note: Last week, I had to drive to Columbia, SC from Virginia Beach, about a 400 mile trip each way. In a city I passed, I think it was Lumberton, NC, there was a large factory, about two blocks long, which was closed down. Instead of a real estate sign on the building, there was a banner over where one might walk into the corporate offices which said, “YOUR NAME COULD BE HERE”.
