We love our new space! In addition to being more convenient for every one of us, closer to the Gallery, and easier to find a parking place, this store is light, bright and soft on the feet. With beautiful big windows, pale walls and gorgeous décor, we think it’s as inviting as our own homes. (And it’s easy for me to brag about, since I’m the one person who, having planned a buying trip to France to accidentally coincide with our move, can take no credit for the way it all came together!)
Behind the sleek facade, clean lines, and cheerful new location, it’s the talented and tireless “Huffingtons” that I mostly want to brag about. Everyone worked so hard to make our dream come true, putting in long hours to move, unpack, merchandise and decorate, and turning the store into the elegant and comfortable place that we could all call home.
With the new space, there are some new faces to whom we’d love to properly introduce you: In fact, do you remember last year’s Huffington photo? See how we’ve grown!
So if you haven’t met them yet, here are the bright new lights in the crowd:
We’re so thrilled to have Susie, a 25-year Delta flight attendant vet, as a new addition to our little family. This Mid-West gal turned Atlantan will charm you with her warm smile and delightful demeanor. If you’re in a pickle deciding on a gift or accessory, Susie is the one to call on for friendly advice! When she’s not at Huff Harrington, she’s keeping busy with her two college and high-school aged boys.
Marlon is the newest member of the “Huffington” team and we’re very grateful to have him on board. He keeps us totally organized, taking care of stock logistics and the heavy lifting around here; all with a smile on his face. Marlon’s quick humor and can-do attitude have made him an instant hit at the store!
“Darlene is my favorite person in the world!” has been exclaimed in our presence by more than one person. With this high praise, we just had to hire Darlene as our new “Huffington” Associate, and we’re so glad we did. Darlene will brighten your day — as she does ours — with her sparkling disposition and ability to help you find just what you’re looking for.
We’re lucky to have not one, but two, Couvillion girls working at HH! Heather came with high praise from her sister, and our head buyer, Allison, and we couldn’t be happier to have her on board. Heather, who has a background in retail merchandising and interior design, can make everything look as pretty in-store as she does in clients’ homes, with an additional knack for keeping our inventory organized while quietly helping our clients on the sales floor.
She’s a clever wordsmith by morning and organized entry expert by afternoon! Alex keeps us new and fresh on Huff Harrington’s website and handles our behind the scenes inventory operations with total aplomb. A whips-mart UGA grad with a Journalism degree and minor in French under her belt, Alex enjoys keeping up with Dawg sports and traveling here, there and everywhere.
Some of you may remember little miss Scurry, our “white” bichon frisée who sadly passed away last year. We had a joke that whenever Scurry spent the weekend staying with her aunty Sam, she came home black instead of white. So here’s the new Scurry – a sweet little Havanese named Coco – with her built-in color protection against a weekend of too much fun with her Aunty Sam.
We’d also like to reintroduce the familiar faces that you’ve come to know over time, whose full bios you’ll find on our website:
So there you have it. We can’t wait to have you visit our new location and meet the lovely and welcoming people who made it all happen. We’re here 10 to 6, Monday’s through Fridays, 10 to 5 on Saturdays, and starting on October 30th, from 1 to 5 on Sundays.
