This is a recording of the creation of a new business, Dancing Cup Cafe, in Orange Beach, Al., by two people that have never opened a business before, Scott VanTine and Rhonda Hill. We chose Orange Beach because we wanted to be close to my family and we wanted to be even closer to the beach. We chose a coffee shop because we both love coffee shops and both know how to work one. What we don't know is how to start one.

We go to an auction
Babs, (Rhonda's mom) was headed to an auction and had seen some items that she thought we might want for the cafe. We drove up to Thomasville and stayed the night there, then onto to Selma, Al to do some bidding. We did a little sight seeing of historic Selma on the way. Once there Rhonda successfully bid on a peanut display rack, (we'll display chip bags) and a table w/four cafe style chairs.
