Surprise Package

7/19/2011


My brother Steve is too busy traveling and running his furniture store The Wooden House to spend time on social media and marketing, which is where I come in. I write his store's blog, manage its social media campaigns (find the store on Facebook and Twitter) and write most of the press materials. 


I couldn't charge Steve my average freelance rate (he's family!) so the plan is for me to accompany him on another buying trip at some point. Last summer, I traveled with Steve to India (see photos here and here) and hopefully my next trip will be to Indonesia!


 Now and again I will get a package of home goods from The Wooden House in the mail, as a thank you from Steve. This week, I got this quilt (perfect for picnics!), pair of scented soaps, mother of pearl box and beaded necklace. Thanks Steve - and good luck opening in your new location (2003 N. Henderson in Dallas) today! So proud of you.
