Residual Haunting Activity

In the shop we had a couple of things that happened at approximately the same time everyday and then one event that was off and on all day.

A residual haunt is something that happens on a regular basis much like looping a movie or song, the spirit, energy, ghost, whatever you want to call it has no idea that you are present and cannot interact with you it just keeps repeating the same behavior over and over again.

Everyday at around 2:00 pm you would hear the sound of the back door opening. It was a metal door and had a very distinct sound when it was opened. This was an add-on to the original building, you had this back door that brought you into a hallway at the end of the hall was a steep staircase that went up to your right and then you entered what was the original back door. This door was kept open when the shop was open.

Anyway, everyday around 2 pm you would hear the sound of the back door opening but no one would come in to the shop. The staircase was blocked off so that no one could sneak upstairs without us knowing.

One evening

Another Antique Shop Where Mine Was

Since I live only a couple of blocks from my former antique shop I keep a pretty watchful eye over it, still feel the connection to the place. I am not stalking the place.

Not long after I moved out a photographer moved in. She was very busy repainting the interior and even held an open house then poof... she was out of there after only 3 months.

Then about a month ago I noticed that someone else was moving in.

I Realize There Are Skeptics

I know that there are skeptics out there who will poo poo this entire experience and this is fine. I have always said opinions are like assholes, we all have one. I did not go into this shop with anything paranormal on my mind, I was so overjoyed at finally being able to have my very own antique shop in a building that I loved that my only concerns were getting the shop opened as soon as possible and making the business a success.

When the bizarre things started happening I brushed them off. It was several months before I decided that something not normal was going on in the building. By this time the shop was open to the public and I had customer's telling me stories that corresponded to experiences I had myself.

C.R.E.E.P.Z Ghost Commandos - My Granny's Attic Antiques - Post Investig...

This was the last investigation in the shop and we opened it up to the public. C.R.E.E.P.Z. came along to video tape anything that might happen and they brought their equipment for us to use.

I have to say that this investigation still brings tears to my eyes. The evps picked up are very touching.

Purpose of this blog

For over a year and a half I owned an antique shop that turned out to be haunted. We had a number of paranormal investigation groups come in and have loads of evidence of the paranormal activity in the shop.

Here I will chronicle some of the more interesting events that occurred. I am sad to say that I had to close the shop in Feb. 2010 but I kept a journal of the activity and have some of the results of the investigations.

The building has a wonderful history and I feel very honored to have been able to spend the time that I did in it and experience things that have forever changed my life.
