A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Worker

A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Worker

Worker: a : one that works hard  especially at manual or industrial labor or with a particular material .  For details of the photo challenge go here

This post is dedicated to  business owner, Leslie Gerbertz . She owns an Antique/Thrift shop in Wilmington Ca. called “East of the Sun, West of the Moon.” Neighbor Linda and I have worked once a week at her shop since the store opened last year. Leslie’s knowledge of her trade; antiques , collectibles , jewelry never cease to amaze me. Every week I learn something new. She has been collecting and antiquing for over 20 years with the goal of opening a store to display her treasures .  “She did it !”  Leslie has been a great inspiration to me, this past year.  She does it herself , no job is too big and if you want to get something done right , do it yourself.   Without further ado, I introduce to you, “Leslie Gerbertz, hard at work.”

I was holding the ladder and getting the tools she needed to hang a 2 by 4 on the ceiling to hang chairs. You notice she could hold on to her tools with no hands while in heels!    She is smart, brave and one of the hardest working women I know.    If you are ever in the area come on down and check out her store.  If you are a collector looking for a find, give Leslie a call.  If she doesn’t have one, she will find one for you!  

Her store is right down the street from the world-famous, Los Angeles Port Authority,in San Pedro Ca., it is the largest in the world!  Hey longshoremen grab your spouses and come on down AFTER  your shift for those items you have been longing to find!! Tell your friends!!!
