People were shocked when we gave up our desk jobs and changed our lives so completely. To us, the desire to change our lives seemed so natural that it was not really a change, it was just part of our long term plan. Of course, our plan was more "and then do something completely different." The detail about selling antiques came later. Apparently, when faced with "what would I do if only I could make a change..," others would not choose to buy used things and try to sell them. Go figure.
People don't always like change, but furniture doesn't even consider it. Most furniture is not adjustable, and wasn't designed to be. Here is a wonderful industrial sewing machine desk that grows as you grow.
