Meet Parrie L. Brooks (Penni) from A Penny For Your Thoughts
♥ Please tell the Village about yourself:
My employment history is rather circuitous in that I entered college after marriage and Motherhood. As an Educator I take particular pride in the accomplishments of my former students who include a Grammy/Tony Award Winner, Cardiologists, published authors, , entrepreneurs, and various other performing artists. This is natural since I taught in the only Lower School designed as a magnet school for the performing arts. In short, they have become the stories that rarely find their way into the media accounts of the urban experience.
I also had the honor of working as an Educational Consultant where I traveled all over the country providing services to various districts in their school improvement initiatives.
♥ Tell the Village about your business:
My formal online business is six years old. I always enjoyed creating gift-wrap and cards for family and friends. Currently our shop offers a variety of greeting cards for any occasion as well as gift-wrap and tags. My favorite product continues to be our gift sets. I like to envision our customers purchasing a particular set and experiencing the joy of presenting their gift wrapped in our products.
♥ What inspires you?
Nature, fabrics and graphics constantly inspire me.
The inspiration continues to grow since we are now partnered with a local flower shop where our products are readily available.
♥ What do you love most about your business?
I love the opportunity to interact with fellow artisans. Feedback on social media also provides a viable point of contact with friends and potential customers.
♥ Would you recommend Sampler Village for other artisans to participate in? Why or why not?
Sampler Village gives consumers an opportunity to try our products before making a purchase . The online community of Sampler Village is a supportive one unlike any other.
