Moving out of Mellwood

I HAVE FOUND A SPACE!  I can leave Mellwood!

With the recent problems I have with Mellwood Art Center with my equipment being damaged and, with the help of a realtor, I have located a space I can move into right away. 

This has nearly everything I am looking for:   sink, bathroom, electric, room for soap curing racks, storage for supplies and most importantly, room to grow.  It is in a quiet area, SAFE and I have an added bonus of having a space to back in my trailer, drop it off and head home for the night after an event... which is (added plus-plus bonus) is less than 10 minutes from home.

I also have room to teach my much-requested soap-making classes at this facility once I am settled and I also have a small area for retail.

I will need some assistance from a moving company to pick up the workshop and move (workshop fixtures, supplies, etc).  While we talked about it, my taller half and I cannot do this by ourselves.  I have a shoulder injury and he cannot lift with just our truck, car and a trailer.  Movers are a very viable option for me to get this done completely, and as quickly as possible to restart my production again.

I am requesting $1500.  This will cover movers, supplies to move (boxes, etc) and possibly buying out the remainder of the lease at Mellwood if they decide to pick a snit.  :) 

Please donate generously, I will need this soon once I talk to Mellwood about terminating my lease which is up in October.

With this move, I can see myself setting myself up for the future.
