Looking for an Opportunity
In better times, ten years ago, I gave a friend who still had his own shop - a finisher, curve needle, Mckay, nose cone 16, press, tools, findings ,etc. I had gone into another business. I lost my ass to the economy/other business. My friend can't reciprocate (give back equip&supplies) without closing his doors. I don't have the funds needed to start over. If you have a shop full of equip, or an existing shop you don't want to see close (and it's still viable). If you could give me the shop or just let me take over without much cost (financed), I would be greatly interested. I am further interested in working with/for someone for a fair rate of 35-40% of my work. I am a high quality, done it all cobbler, orthopedist, & leather-crafter w/20-30 years of experience and great customer skills.,  contact me with your offer.
