Description
Co-own our downtown Muncie Auction House - Mr Bid Auctions.com - we are located on S. Liberty in the old industrial Norandex warehouse. Individuals and/or businesses can drop off item(s) to be auctioned. In addition, Angi & Troy are passionate about supporting their local community & held their first ever 'Fundraising Auction" for Camp Chesterfield, whose campus suffered severe building damage as a result of multiple tornado's that ripped thru Indiana earlier in 2016. Angi plans on expanding the Auction House's Fundraising in 2017 & hopes to incorporate the local downtown Muncie artists to get involved. Troy and Angi offer their Auction House services as part of a donation to raise funds for any type of community need: from Church Mission Trip, to Summer T-Ball Little League. Contact Troy and Angi at 765-730-2612. Angi is excited to be launching a new line in 2017 that partners up with local artisans around Delaware County. This line is called Wonderland Curiosities; their initial launch focuses on the vintage Blythe Doll offering customization, new doll clothing and accessories for the 11in Blythe doll and the 18in American Girl dolls. Angi is planning to partner up with artisans interested in fashion design, fashion alteration, fashion material sourcing, branding & offering mentorship to those who may lack experience in launching a new business startup, marketing, project management & more! Angi is very excited & hopeful she will find individuals who want to stretch their Artistical Arms and open to expanding into new areas of design and growth.
Background
Angi is a Registered Nurse with an advanced Business Degree, who specialized in statistical data mining, remote employment/training, project management, both U.S. & International Outsourcing contracts with Federal and State Regulatory Oversight in the health insurance field under Medicare, Medicaid and Private Insurance. Her last position was with Anthem/Wellpoint, where she was in charge of the Medicare Health Program in New York and Connecticut, she had over 85 professional skilled medical employees & 100 non-skilled call center and support staff, both located in various office locations in Brooklyn, California, Indy & remote home based staff. Angi began showing chronic health ailments in 2011, that ultimately led to 2 years being bed bound & almost losing her life. She underwent serious brain surgery summer of 2016, to attempt to improve her quality of life. The left side of her brain has stenosis, meaning the artieries/veins do not work, there is no bloodflow to the left side of her brain. Dr Silvidi placed in brain shunt in the middle of her brain in hopes to alleviate her symptoms, but at this time, their is no cure or surgery to fix the bloodflow. This life altering experience, impacted both Angi and Troy, resulting in Troy retiring from Indiana State Police to launching their downtown Muncie Auction House. Thankful for a second chance, Angi embraces all aspects of the Arts. Excited to now have the time to pursue her lifelong passion of arts. She has a studio located at their Auction House warehouse located at 722 S Liberty St, Muncie in the old Norandex industrial warehouse. Angi's goal for 2017, is to connect to the local downtown and Muncie art networks. She looks forward to growing and learning from other talented artists.
