Tell us a random fact people would be surprised to know about you: I can quote almost any movie out there, and will often do so for a laugh!
Tell us a funny moment at 308 Wonderful King Street that still makes you laugh out loud: Just having moments of silliness with the team; especially at Christmas when tensions can run high…a well-placed joke always lightens the moment!
What are your 4 favorite items on our site and why?
1. 14K Gold Baby Bangle: Sweet and classic!
2. Temple St. Clair Cosmic Moonface Pendant: I love layering Temple pieces, and this rainbow pendant would be a perfect addition to wear with my amulet. I wear it daily!
3. Ruby & Diamond Channel Set Bangle: These are one of my favorites because my birthstone is ruby, and you don’t see it worn very often! I would wear it everyday, alone or as part of my stack.
4. Pewter Julep Cups: Beautiful with a monogram, makes a wonderful gift, and I love to collect them!
