You may have noticed our resident jokester Kay Anderson has been missing from the mall. For anyone who has seen Kay for the past 16 years speed walking through the mall, scavenging through dumpsters, or being a one women moving crew it won’t be a surprise that Kay’s knees have less energy then her. After too many years of grinning and bearing it and never complaining, Kay has finally been forced to put her knees first and have knee replacement surgery. So don’t worry when you don’t see her over the next few months, she is at home recuperating from a successful surgery.
Kay is such an integral part of our Southport Antique Mall family. She brings a spirit of genuine altruism and leaves everyone she meets with a smile on their face. Kay has been dedicated to reusing and recycling long before it was the trendy thing to do; she brings this commitment to the mall by spearheading our green efforts. She is always willing to help; she keeps our egos in check with her good-natured teasing, and keeps us all laughing with her wacky Kay-isms. Get well soon and hurry back!
We will miss her a lot over the next few months; here are some of the highlights of what her mall family will miss most…
“Kay is absolutely the most wonderful, kindest, and orneriest person I know and I’ll miss everything about her but especially her wearing her clothes backwards. We love her and can’t wait for her to return.” Jane
“I will miss her kindness and caring because she is one of the most kind and caring people I know.” Suzy
“Mostly her sense of humor.” John
"Kay is a mix of kindness and fun with a little evil thrown in. You should all be blessed to work with someone like her. I'll miss you Kay!" Geri
