Meet the Team: Melissa

This Fall I set out to hire a shop manager. What I got instead was an incredible super woman who finishes my sentences. Sincerely, Melissa's presence in the shop and fresh ideas have brought a new kind of a magic to Constellation & Co. The thing that excites me most about 2018 is seeing all that we'll accomplish together this year! Here's what Melissa had to say about herself:

Q: Describe yourself in 6 words or less.
I have no idea I'm not capable of being that objective about myself. 

Q: What is your favorite thing about working at Constellation & Co.?
Besides the cards (which I love because they are cards that say real things we face. Whether funny or tugging at my heart strings, they hit close to home every time.), I love that we fill the shop with people and handmade crafts of people that we admire. 

Q: What are you doing when you're not in the shop? (Jobs, hobbies, etc.)
When not working I am a crazy crafter (knit, crochet, make soap, candles, bath bombs, macrame, make books, and many other things 90 year old woman might do), take care of my gang of misfit animals, and try to explore as much as Washington as I can.

Q: What is your favorite place in Seattle? (Shops, restaurants, parks, etc.)
I have lots of favorite spots in Seattle, but I think my all time favorite spot is the Ballard Locks. It's a special place where I go with one of my nearest and dearest and sit on the hill and catch up, you fall in love with the rose garden in summer, and every time I go a I see a seal and that's super magical to me being from the east coast.
