NOTE: THIS IS PART 2
Tuesday MORNING---opening of Vickie's Haunted Vintage
Phone: Briiinggg, Brinnnnng!
Vickie: Thanks Zoe for coming in, Nikki had to work her other job today, and I really need the help.
If you can finish straightening the jewelry, that would be great.
Vickie's Haunted Vintage......
Zoe: (Wow, this is an awesome collection of items for Halloween. I'm lucky I found some work, my other job just isn't paying enough.) Vickie these spider orbs are so cool. Do you want this table neat-neat, or casually draped.
Vickie: Just straight enough you can see everything and not a tangled mess.
Zoe: Okay, done, I'll do the shoe rack next.
Zoe:(hmmm, treat bags are low, I will have to see if there any in the back. Love the Poison Apples, )
(Hmmm---such great vintage decor? )
(Orange black in this cabinet---love the Mummy. )
Vickie: Darn the lights are out again. I guess it just adds to the ambiance.
Zoe: You have plenty of light from the street and the string lights are still on
Vickie: I'll go downstairs and flip the breakers. I don't understand why one string of lights is screwing us up? They are hooked on the emergency circuit for the security cameras, so they have power all the time.
I see customers outside, Zoe. Can you please unlock the door and greet them.
Zoe: Okay, Welcome to Vickie's Haunted Vintage. If you need anything special, I'm here to help you.
Belle: I saw this the other day when Vickie was unpacking boxes, I have to have it for the Skeleton Bash.
Zoe: Can I interest you in the tail that goes with that fabulous dress?
Tory: Really, I didn't know it's a Mermaid outfit, The Little Mermaid is my favorite fairytale. Really how do you wear it?
Zoe: Your feet stick out the bottom and you just hobble around? Need some sandals?
An hour later the line is long.
Tory: Vickie, your selection is awesome. And I will take a ticket for the Bash, too.
Belle: I'll comeback and pick up my accessories when I get paid on Friday. Wow, there have been a lot of customers shopping while we were here.
Barbie: I always wanted to be a Glam Rocker, now I can at least pretend---that jacket is adorable, but I may use my own silver pants.
Vickie: Well, we made up costumes from some of the vintage pieces that came in. Your imagination will just make it yours, I'm sure. Thanks again.
Vickie: Vickie's Haunted Vintage, how can I help you. (My goodness and it's only 1:00).
Six hours later the phone is still ringing.
Nikki: Sorry I had to bail on you today---the boss was sick and one teacher for 48 kiddies, which is Hell, not to mention illegal.
Vickie: No problem, Zoe's been great and she's a natural with the customers. Hope you fit the Gypsy costume, I thought of you when you said you were going to read Tarot cards at the benefit.
Nikki: My grandma had the gift, though it has passed me by, but I can still read cards, or fake reading cards for donations. The benefit is going to be a great boost for all the hurricane victims.
(6pm, Monnie walks in)
Monnie: Here's the extra poster and more tickets for you to sell. Wow, this looks fabulous.
Phone: Briiinnnnng, Brinnnnngggg!
Vickie: Thanks, been busy, how many more tickets?
Monnie: Here's 50 more, will that do it?
Vickie: (nods her head, yes) Vickie's Haunted Vintage, how can I help you?
