1) Writing - (novice to published writers, many different subjects)

My antiques mall, Ozarks Antiques & Collectibles - in Springdale, Arkansas - 

offered extremely affordable antiques to residents of Northwest Arkansas.

Since its closing a few years ago, no other store has filled that niche.

I have decades of experience in the antiques business, as my parents were avid collectors and dealers.
