Tell us a random fact people would be surprised to know about you: I have no sense of smell.
Tell us a funny moment at 308 Wonderful King Street that still makes you laugh out loud: Once a mouse ran across the showroom floor early one morning when we had just arrived. I’ve never seen everyone move so fast, jumping onto the counters and into chairs. Once everyone’s feet were off the ground we died laughing. I realized that day how agile some of these ladies really are!
