The haunted antique store skepticism is common. Most people need to have personal experience to be truly convinced of paranormal activity. Jane was certainly no exception. As a child in the oldest neighborhood farmhouse, creaking floors and stairs were common. Doors sometimes closed on their own, and occasionally lights flickered. All these things were attributed to the older construction. Her childhood sweetheart would tell stories of ghostly experiences. Jane felt as though she couldn't fully believe without her own experience. Some tales seemed so incredibly unlikely that belief seemed impossible. Jane married her childhood sweetheart and began working in an antique store. The building was an ancient, extravagant mansion, with five large bedrooms and even a foyer and a parlor. The front door opened to a wide, beautiful staircase, and bells rang to signal customers entering and leaving. Upstairs was a hallway complete with a bannister that traced an arc across the length of the house and down the back stairway, ending in the kitchen.
