We had a great show in Houston! There were thousands and thousands of shoppers, all so excited to shop Paul Michael. Glitter stems and picks, ribbons and ornaments were tossed about like popcorn in a theater. And with crowds like this, we often have funny stories at the end of the day—we consider them “customer encounters of the THIRD kind.” Needless to say, we thought it would be fun to share some of these on our blog. Here’s the first:
An elderly couple was shopping for a new wreath for their home. At first the man wasn’t engaged at all, until he watched our designers. The woman decided that they, too, wanted to make their own wreath, so she was trying to pick a color scheme, components and more when suddenly her husband got totally into it, took charge and designed his first wreath—and it was a great one to boot! His wife became a little frustrated at this point and said to him, “After 40 years of marriage, you decide now to help me decorate? I thought you just liked baseball!?” He replied, “Well dear, you never told me all these pretty ladies were here, and I’d be the only guy.” The wreath he designed was beautiful. We think we put him in touch with his artistic self, which he never knew existed!
