Annemarie, our Sparkle Plenty Designs Production Manager is featured in today’s SPARKLE SPOTLIGHT, so let’s learn a bit about her!
So Annemarie, do you consider yourself a Philly girl through & through?
I think I am a true Philly girl. I particularly loved going to high school in the 80′s with great music, big hair and crazy clothes!
What’s your favorite thing about the city of brotherly love?
I love food, so soft pretzels and chocolate milk was my “breakfast of champions”, but I’m also very very fond of cheesesteaks and hoagies.
What’s your place for a hoagie or cheesesteak?
It’s a toss-up between Wawa and Primos for a Hoagie, but a great cheesesteak is always found at the mom and pop pizza places. I also love Original Boston Pizza in Mayfair — my vote for the best!
Please share your favorite hobbies/ways you enjoy to chill:
I previously worked for a DJ/Karaoke company and fell in love with Karaoke! Singing is such a great release and I have always tried to have fun, even if I had been working.
We are so happy to have you on our team; what brought our way?
I was looking for a part time job and saw the posting looking for someone that is crafty, but time effective and thought I’d be a great match. I had worked as a 411 operator and also a csr for a rush courier company, both required strict time deadlines therefore I knew I could work within a timeframe.
What have you learned about sparkle you never thought you’d know before?
How much I would love not only fulfilling orders, big and small, but also helping make design suggestions for new material.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I worry a customer will have a concern and then I’m always ecstatic when we receive compliments!
Best philly hangout?
Until recently, my favorite place to meet up with friends was Sisters nightclub and restaurant, but in this bad economy has shut its doors for good after 17 years of business.

Never pay full price! Ask for a discount, referral or coupon, and a sale is almost always a good deal!
