Have You Ever Had A Dream Where...

Have you always wanted to do one thing in your life, but you were stopped by such things as trying to make a living the traditional way? Were you blocked from promotions, and no matter how hard you worked nothing became truly satisfactory?

Have you always used your gifts and talents to make others prosperous. Is it just a dream or DejaVu when you say "yes" to the universe, skills and talents?

All of her life Mrs. Yarbrough was a designer. Even as a young girl, she would drive her family crazy, because they might leave for a little while, and when they came back home, she would have rearranged whole rooms, and possibly the whole house.

Ms. Margaret has always been drawn to places and things that needed re-doing. She likes to take things apart, fix them up, and put them back together better than before. This is what she was born to do.

Over the years, she worked in other shops, and loved using her creativity and excitement for organizing, decorating and designing their stores. She worked for several other businesses over the years where she was able to understand how a business is run, and always gave 100% of her talent and skills to the job

During our interview, I asked her where she finds her items. She gets her pieces the most enjoyable way of all; she is a picker. Part of what makes her dream of having her own business so fun, is she gets to rummage around in old farms and estates, finding pieces that she will bring back to her shop.

It finally happened. The economy slowed down, and there was not very much work to be had in other retail establishments, especially small businesses. Several things fell into place, and in a frightening economy Margaret Yarbrough opened her own Antique and resale shop.

Margaret finally said yes to using her talents and skills to do what she always wanted to do, and make her dream come true. She promotes other small businesses and artists. She displays and sells jewelry and other pieces for others in the community.

(If you have an old barn, shed or house that you want someone who will treat the items with respect, and not be greedy, please contact Ms. Margaret Yarbrough 479-647-6342)

The result is a favorite antique and resale shop in Clarksville, Arkansas called Deja Vu.

DejaVu; Different Things to Different People

Back in the old days (1960s and 1970s), when I was growing up, I was heavily influenced by a band called Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. In the spring of 1970 the band released the Album by the name of Deja Vu.The song of the same title is 5+ minutes long, and interesting. This was the first time I realized when you sometimes have a feeling you may have dreamed something or been in a place or time before; it is called Deja Vu.
