Favorite Word: Synergy
Collects: Star Trek Collectibles (Original Series)
Favorite spot in the mall: Because I grew up in the mall, my favorite spot would have to be the "secret passage way" in section one. When I was a little kid I thought it was awesome that I could cut through the middle of the section!
Years at Southport Antique Mall: 19 years. The first seven I spent pestering the staff, the next seven I worked in the mall, and the last five I have been running the marketing.
Best antiquing tip: Turn things over. Always look at the bottom of things because people often forget to look for cracks there.
Favorite things about working at SAM: They are my family. Going there is like going home.
Favorite Word: Epic.
Collects: I don't really have an antique collection yet, but I do have an obsession with the color magenta to the point where it could be considered a collection.
Favorite spot in the mall: I have two. My first is section three. When you are working, you get to see a lot of the people roaming around. My second favorite is the back room because it's comfy.
Years at Southport Antique Mall: Well, Piper has been dragging me along since college, but technically about three years.
Best antiquing tip: You don't have to take antiques as they are. You can put a fresh coat of paint on something and transform it!
Favorite things about working at SAM: It's been said before, but it is definitely the people. They are fun and whacky and really kind hearted. Also, the opportunity to be a co-marketing director has been an invaluable experience.
