TOM MOHR Service Station 7400 HARRISON ST. 366-0317 arge Sissulak Christmas is less than a month away and everyone is busy looking for just the right gift for wife, husband, children, friends, etc. I've been swamppd with requests for certain items that I don't have on hand but I'm searching so try us again. I'd like to spend a few minutes looking back over the past 18 months. That's how long I've had my little Friendship House Antique Shop open. I really had misgivings many times. I had been discouraged by so many people so many times that I'd have closed up shop and moved. Everyone told me that Forest Park would not support a shop like mine. I agree, but so many people in Forest Park have had the things we sell and discarded it and bought new things; so why should they buy the old things again? I've bought marry lovely things from residents of Forest Park and to each and every one of them I say "Thank you". I'm always looking for old glassware, clocks, furniture, jewelry, etc. so any time you have something you want to sell, just give me a call. If I can't get away from the shop during the day, I can always come after I close in the evening. This year has been bad for all businesses. Seems like the whole year was one continuous strike. If you and your family escaped without being affected personally, you're very fortunate. We just went through 10 weeks of the General Motors strike and we are so grateful that it's over. We were just one of the hundreds of thousands of families who were affected by this strike and I'm sure they're all as glad as we are to be back at work. If we would all take just a few moments to reflect on the year almost behind us, we'd surely realize just how much we have to be thankful for. I've commented many times that I didn't have anything when I opened my little shop and if I had to close it, I couldn't have any less; but I'm rich in many ways. I've met so many wonderful people and made many wonderful friends. With Christmas just ahead of us, let's try to remember the true meaning of Christmas. It's a season of giving but let's also put something into it. "Let's Put Christ Back Into Christmas". READ REVIEW GLASS? MIRRORS? Call TAYLOE Glass Company VI 8-0751
