Decade: Where It All Began

2 Nov

blogAs we get closer to our big 10 Year Anniversary Party we want to take you down memory lane with us. We’re going to be sharing pictures and having a Q&A with Rapunzel herself during the next few series of blog posts. We hope you enjoy reading about our past 10 years as much as we’ve enjoyed going through the pictures and talking about our favorite memories!

1.       How did you get the nickname Rapunzel?
RES: My dad gave it to me when I was born.  I think he really liked the name Rapunzel and to this day, still calls me by it.

2.       How did you decide on the Rapunzel’s Branding? The RC logo, bag/tissue colors?
RES: My grandma’s favorite color was purple, and when I was little she had a gift shop in the front of my grandpa’s postcard company’s warehouse.  So I wanted a purple store.  And I thought the lime green was a good accent color to go with it.
3.       What was your favorite part about owning the gift shop?
RES: My favorite part of the shop was merchandising.  I loved moving things around, cleaning and reorganizing. (It’s still my favorite part today)

4.       What gift item was your favorite to sell?
RES: My favorite gift item to sell were the wooden animal clocks.  They were so unique, and handmade in the US. I loved selling them and sometimes I was even able to customize them.  We once made a blue pelican for the Palm Beach Day School auction.
