Villager Voices Interview ♥ ♥ A Penny For Your Thoughts

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.
