I hate to keep harping on it but a large number of our social connections have been reconnected today. It was because dumb bunny had forgotten the password to all of them and thus they were not getting our posts. Our posts are spread around the world so I know there are several that has missed out on the latest that is going on. Those of you who know, please bear with me.
As of April 27th, we will be closed Magickal Necessities permanently. The store has not turned a profit since the first of the year and we find ourselves in a predicament were we need every dime we can get. As you know I lost my home close to the end of last year. I lost everything in that fire and the fire was due to a stalker who throw something through the window and ignited the place. I went out a two story window with my pup and suffered several injuries. I was in the hospital for several weeks. When I got out Lynette had rented a house for Eleanor, Lynette and myself to stay in till construction could start back on my house. During that time, we have had two buildings to keep up. The second building is an added expense because my home was paid for. The other building being the house we rented to live in, we couldn’t live out on the streets. With the expense of the office and the house rental it has been an extreme burden just to make ends meet. So property taxes are now due on my house’s property and the office’s property. Those taxes total $1215.00. Since the store has not turned a profit and does no longer support itself, we are closing it. We are also short on the amount of tax money we owe. I can’t see paying for the store to stay open when it is costly to run and not making any money. As long as any of our sites support themselves, I have no problem keeping them open. Some have worried this would have an effect on the WOTC, it won’t the WOTC will stay open no matter what. If we don’t come up with the tax money though, I have no idea where we will be working from. The house Lynette rented is not big enough for that.
I think that pretty well catches you up. Now in the finally days of the store being open, I have asked that you please make a purchase before the merchandise is gone or if not and please make a donation if you can. I feel like I am throwing myself on the mercy of the world. But managing two buildings, especially when you are use to having one building has been an extreme burden and one heck of an expense. But we cannot afford to lose our property. They are trying to start construction on my property to rebuild my home(if the weather would cooperate). So you see, we have till April 16th to come up with the $1215.00 or else they will auction off our property. We are a little ways off from reaching that goal and I am sincerely hoping a miracle comes through before the 16th.
After thinking about it, I don’t know if I caused us to lose everything we owned, I could ever hold my head up again in the Pagan community. You might be stuck with Eleanor. I know you would love that and I know she would too. But back to our main problem right now, if you can make a purchase from the store before it closes, we would appreciate it. If you can make a donation, we would deeply appreciate that also. Either way, we would be indebted to you for the rest of our lives and it would mean the world to us. I have the links below. The donations or purchases doesn’t have to be much, every bit helps and we appreciate it more than you will ever know.
I love you,
Thank you to all of you who have made donations and purchases so far. Thank you just doesn’t express it for me because what you have done so far is beyond words and I love you for it.
