Liquidated 14,000 Sq. Ft. Dawsonville, Georgia Home At Onsite Auction 2009
The Return of MyHart - Part II - Continuation of The Return of MyHart
On October 5th, 2008 after 12 years of blood, sweat and tears my world as I knew it ended. I had pretty much given up everything I had to build what I thought was my auction future in Cumming, Georgia. I had gone though divorce, sold my family farms and suffered the loss of a son. After being told that I would never be allowed to attend another My Hart Auction. I faced a future deeply in debt with no feasible way left to earn a living. With no other choice left I turned to prayer and what followed has truly been amazing!
From my daughter's home in Ohio I contacted a couple of my auction customers in Georgia for suggestions of where I might sell my loads of antiques. After speaking with the owner's of a couple Georgia auction companies I was still at a loss as to what I should do. One company was located in South Georgia and much farther than I wanted to drive. The other was the owner of a new auction company to Georgia but I just didn't feel things would work out there. Guess I was right as I have heard the company is no longer in business.
I had noticed over previous months a Georgia auctioneer that ranked well on AuctionZip.com who was located near Cleveland, Georgia. With nothing to lose I decided to call Connie Morris owner and auctioneer at 129S Antiques & More Auction. Much to my satisfaction I approved of what Connie had to say about conducting auctions! I made arrangements with Connie to haul a small test load of antiques to her auction gallery to be sold on November 14th, 2008.
While driving back to Georgia with that first load of antiques. Connie much to my surprise said I could have access to her AuctionZip account to load my auction photos. Wow what had been taken away from me at My Hart was starting to come back to me by someone I hadn't even met yet. At this time I still had hopes of selling at My Hart's auctions. However conditions soon progressed to the point I realised that was no longer a viable option! So what was first meant to be a test run at Connie's auction soon turned into a full blown antique auction held on November 14, 2008! When much to Connie's surprise I added another larger box truck load of antiques to the antique auction.
The second time I meet Connie she gave me a key to her auction gallery. A few months later the adjacent wharehouse became available for my use. Late January 2009 I meet Colleen Hayden who is here with me in Georgia as I write this on 12-31-2012 New Year's Eve.
What I didn't know when I first decided to pray for help. Connie Morris was praying for someone to come along and assist with her auctions! God does truly work in mysterious ways ...

Facebook Message from Connie Morris
John, I took the time to look over the My Hart.net site and now I'm having to dry my tears instead of getting ready to come work. Your comments touched my heart very deeply. I know that God had a plan, and still does. Thank you so much for your friendship, kindness, and hard work over the last few years. You have no idea how many times I have kept going because of words that you say. Thanks again, and if I can stop the tears, I'll be at work soon. Connie Morris
