VVV Warehouse Sale

The Gilmer Free Press

Since my sister Sherry’s death, I have been trying to do many of the things I’ve always wanted to do in my life.  Life is short.  It’s even shorter now because the second coming of the Lord will be much sooner than many believe.  The time is right for Jesus’ return.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (KJV),  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The New Life Version says it best, in my opinion, The time will come when people will not listen to the truth. They will look for teachers who will tell them only what they want to hear. 4 They will not listen to the truth. Instead, they will listen to stories made up by men.

We are in such a time. Come, Lord Jesus, Come!


Anyway, in so doing my many projects I was clueless as to why I was doing them Someone told me a few months ago that I am doing my “bucket list.“  A deer in the headlights of an oncoming semi couldn’t have been more shocked.  Sure enough, that’s what I’ve been doing.  The forest was too close for me to see the trees.

Most of the projects I’ve attempted I loved. The food pantry, while extremely taxing, is the joy of my heart because through it we have the awesome opportunity to meet people at their point of need and tell them about Jesus. The food has always been secondary.  The need is great for food, clothing, HBA and other tangible items, but what people really want is to know someone cares.  We now take the prayer requests of each person passing through.  They are prayed for on our site at the end of our day and then taken to a local church for additional prayer. Only the blood of Jesus can save a soul from eternal Hell.

Farming/animals are dear to my heart. God willing I will go back to raising animals one day.  There have been a few projects that, although I love them, I’m not at all suited to them or am too old and physically incapable of doing them well. However, there is only one project, thus far, that is not pleasing to me in the slightest, including the fact that it’s not suited to me and my understanding and knowledge thereof is very limited.  I’m speaking of Visions, Vessels, and Victory, Inc. Warehouse.  Therefore, it is my intention to sell all the product and accessories of my warehouse in a lump sum.  The building and land are NOT included in this sale. 

Mr. Greg Shackleford, who managed Appcon Lumber and Supply, Inc. for years and has been the director of VVV for many years, has estimated the market value of our entire product to be in the neighborhood of 3/4 to 1.2 million dollars.  When you consider the vast amount of items, the shelving, peg board, pegs, sinks, windows, doors (over 2000), welding supplies, and countless items such as handicap bars, sink drainers, Ondora, lumber, paint, hardware, etc., I’m positive he is correct.  We have many truckloads of product.

Now, we’re not looking to get rich by the sale of the warehouse. Simply said, I just want out of it.  There are other plans I have for the Appcon building that will benefit the community.  In addition, I want to finish the pantry building and have it running as we had planned long ago. This would be an excellent buy for someone wanting to start his or her own store.  It would be better still for a non-profit that has the funds and the manpower to do projects that will help people and could bring them recognition.  Or even better still, if a non-profit sold the items to help their projects, teams, schools, etc.  We’re asking $250,000, which is always negotiable.

Pass on the word.  Call 304.462.5323 if interested or if you know of anyone or business that is interested.  Ask for Greg or Deana or leave a message if no one answers.
