The Life of a Wrapette: Volume I

8 Sep

Here at Wrapsody we are like one, big happy family. The girls that make up this family are called Wrapettes. We wanted to give everyone a chance to meet one of our very special Wrapettes, Amanda, and discover a little bit about what makes her such a special part of our family.

Meet Amanda! Amanda is from Foley, Alabama, and is studying poultry science at Auburn University. Her dream job in poultry science is working in a hatchery dealing with the incubation of eggs and the hatching of chicks! A little different from her work at Wrapsody, I’d say.


Amanda at her station!

Everyone at Wrapsody claims Amanda is the queen of rearranging displays, so I was surprised when I asked her the most challenging part of her job…rearranging displays. “It’s a love-hate relationship,” she said. “You can tear down a display and do it over and over again and just hate it…but once you’re done it’s the best feeling.”

Wrapsody is known for carrying original brands and products, so I asked Amanda what I thought would be a tough question. What’s your favorite product at Wrapsody? Without missing a beat, “I love Ronaldo. Each bracelet is not only beautiful, but has a beautiful story to go with it. And they make great gifts!”

After being at Wrapsody for a year, I figured Amanda had a lot of memories here. I was right. When I asked her her favorite memory she had a hard time picking one out. After offering me two different memories, she finally settled on the third. Easter at Wrapsody. “We have chicks in the window…nothing beats kids’ faces lighting up when they see a chick for the first time and get to hold one.”  So fitting for our girl who wants to work in a hatchery!

While following Amanda around while she was sweeping up the store, I asked her what her favorite quote was. Surprisingly enough, it was a quote that is on display in the store. “A wise old owl sat on an oak. The more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?”

Finally, I asked Amanda to describe her dream life to me in one single sentence. “My dream life…I guess just perfectly happy. In my dream life, I would be perfectly happy.”



Hello, September 🏈

As August comes to an end, we welcome September with open arms. September brings all of the joy & changes that come with the end of summer and the beginning of a new fall (the most wonderful time of year!).

A seemingly difficult task because every football season tops the last, but we love the challenge – don’t we?
