What do you do? My title is The High Priestess of Rubber Chickens. I manage and select all the products for the store (Archie McPhee in Wallingford), I am a manager of our wholesale business, and I am involved in product development.
How long have you been doing that? Twenty years!
How did you get that job? I used to be a waitress, a museum tour guide and a clock maker, so I think it is a natural progression.
Best part of the job? I have a passion for our sassy products, customers and the people I work with. We share a strange vision that involves squirrel underpants, yodeling pickles and pink mustaches for girls. I love having serious conversations about the ship date for tentacle mustaches, the taste of bacon toothpaste, and how rubbery narwhal horns should be.
