Retailer Spotlight: Petite Paperie

At work, when you talk on the phone every day to a person you’ve never met, you tend to get curious about what that person is like in real life. Well, maybe you don’t, but we here at Luscious Verde are a specific breed of character. Perhaps it’s the drinking water from the pristine Cuyahoga River. Perhaps it’s the fact that we’re obsessed with Project Runway. Or, probably, it’s because we’re all a little bit weird. Not in a bad way, mind you, but it takes a specific kind of person to deal with the highs and lows of custom stationery.

And we realized, hey, we talk to people every day who we’ve never met, and who are fans of our work. But just talking to them isn’t enough. We’re curious about their trials and tribulations, their outlook on life, and their favorite alcoholic beverage. So we’ve decided to feature, every few weeks or so, a retailer of our products that we want to get to know a little better. Behold the first entry into our illustrious Retailer Spotlight: Allison from the Petite Paperie in Mill Valley, in beautiful Marin County, California.

Name: Allison Lodish

Where were you born and raised? The city by the bay – San Francisco, CA!

When did you start in custom stationery? At the young age of 17.

For God’s sake, why? It’s a sickness – I love a party. Oh, and paper, of course!

Family? Pets? Family you wish were pets? Husband Max, daughters Avery (7) and Sylvie (5), and dogs Bella and Mabel.

What are your guilty pleasures? No comment.

What’s your favorite beverage? Daytime: grande, non-fat, one Splenda latte. Evening: Mandarin cosmo.

What’s your favorite font? I got a thing for Phank, what can I say?

Not to toot our own horn, but what’s your favorite Luscious Verde design? Really? How can I choose?

Other than being awesome at stationery, what else are you really good at? Any hidden talents? Well, if you must know, in my former life I used to be an actress/singer (hard to believe, I know). I can still carry a decent tune.
