Arts and Antique Store in Atlantica
Having a lifelong obsession is something that sounds familiar to many people. But in reality, only a handful of us really do possess it. For some people, that obsession comes in the form of their favorite sports team. Or perhaps some types of arts I really enjoy. Like movies, music, arts, science and all sorts of fun games. But, there are some people, myself included, that attain an obsession that most others would find very peculiar.
For me, the obsession of choice was and still is antique hats and arts
The same began when I was a little girl, living in Atlantica. Our neighborhood was quiet and ordinary, one of those places where everyone greeted each other in the morning on the street, as well as beautiful street lights and trees that looked like arts from a painting. As a child, I had a wonderful time growing up, but at the same time, I felt that there was something missing and that something was excitement. I just did not find a whole lot of things there that I could be really excited about.
But, all that changed when one day, a distant relative of my grandmother came to live in Atlantica. This relative, known to me as Aunt Mary, had a full life in Switzerland. When she came to our part of the world, she simply said that she wanted to experience living somewhere else after her husband died. Naturally, we welcomed her as a part of our family. We also found her a nice small house in Atlantica that looked gorgeous and antique like it should belong in an arts museum or something.
Mary was a wonderful old woman, full of life and vigor. But, she was completely different from anyone I have ever met. She dressed in huge and outlandish outfits that seemed like they belong in some other age. Aside from these dresses, she always came to our home with incredible hats, most of which looked like they came from an antique store. In my childish life, she was like a character from an incredible book.
Naturally, I became fascinated first and foremost with her hats
However, he soon took me under her wing, while she noticed my huge interest. In her care, usually after education, I began learning about fashion and hats, who which model came about, who were the most famous makers and so on. When I came of age I was fully knowledgeable about antique hats. However, just a year after I finished high school Aunt Mary died from complications from her breast cancer therapy.
After I knew, I was devastated. But when I heard she left me a letter I went to see what she wanted to tell me as her final goodbye. Through tears, I read that she advised me to take her collection and start an antique hats store right there in Atlantica. Without a single second thought, I did exactly this and created my store which I named “Aunt Mary Hatters”.
At first, I expected nothing from it, believe it was a small business that could not last. But, the people of Atlantica were always generous and kind, and the chemistry helped me immensely in my first years. Fortunately, after that, I started to be noticed online by fashion designers, movie makers, costume creators and everyone else who might be in a need for antique hats and other types of art, like paintings for instance.
Five years after
I started the arts store, I was doing great, at that time having a husband and a baby daughter. In fact, the business was going so good that I had to cover more and more distance on my shopping travels so I could stock my supply of hats and various arts. Naturally, thanks to a very smart business model my husband helped me create, we were making a really nice profit.
I traveled the world on short trips to find interesting hats out of bygone eras. One of my biggest finds was a woman who owned a huge bunch of them, but also struggled with her weight. One day, she realized that she was doubtful about weight loss success in her hometown so she decided to move to a new country. To finance this, she sold me all of the hats which made me a small fortune back home.
Of course, I was more than happy to take those brilliant hats off of her hands and finance her desire to find a new place to live. At the end, we both felt that the deal worked out great. Now, I always tell people that a single weight loss decision brought me some of the best hats I saw in my entire life.
What’s happening these days?
Today, my “Aunt Mary Hatters” is working better than ever before. I am very happy and grateful to Aunt Mary and her influence on my which allowed me to attain a fantastic life with my family here in the beautiful Atlantica; full of happiness and numerous kinds of unique arts.
