    Item Description:

    Hello! I’m Bruce Pearson. I’m a reasonably fit, functional single senior. I’ve been living,loving,winning and losing in the ways that life goes on Salt Spring for close to 40 years. Change never stops;and has swept me up again; I’ve been asked to vacate my sweet little cabin home of the last 4 years to accommodate the owner’s family needs. I empathize with that; and they have treated me well. My needs for a new home are modest and ordinary;a safe, healthy, easy to keep clean space in which to live and work quietly and peacefully. Privacy is nice; laundry, indoor bathroom,some dry storage; I’m used to a kitchenette but a stove would be a plus; a second sleeping space when my daughter or a friend are visiting; parking for my small car…and importantly,a heatable and bright workshop, garage, or studio space…where I would be spending most of my valuable time.I design and make precious metal and gemstone jewelry. I am an experienced artist,sculptor,goldsmith,gemologist and appraiser. I show and sell my work in Gallery8 in Ganges,and my online Gulf Jewels Gallery shop.  My jewelry repair business is local and reliably growing.My practise is to meet clients in town; avoiding higher local traffic in your neighborhood or yard.My modest pension income guarantees your rent will be paid every month on time, my working takes care of the rest of my needs. I have tools; and know how to use them; I’ve been a homeowner, caretaker, handyman, woodsman, mechanic and gardener.If you are a senior yourself and are seeking help to continue independent living on your property for an added time, I could help you do that..maintenance, driving to shopping or appointments.I no longer have a pet but can love yours if you have them.I can look after things for you if you take vacations.If you own a valuable property, a condition of your insurer may be that someone must be there 24/7. That could be me. Recreationally;I am pretty quiet; reading,playing a little mandolin music, woods walking and hiking; and I love social partner dancing as often as possible with good friends.No loud music, no TV, no partying.Lets talk about it.
