Spinner strikes again!

June 3, 2011

A couple of weeks ago Spinner was excitedly talking about our sales strategy – I cannot remember the details,  but she was really excited about something. After her presentation, Ace looked at her and joked, “Don’t worry, I think you’re going to win Smashing’s Saleswomen of the year”!  Since that time, Spinner has been on a quest to win that award.

Now most companies offer a free trip to Hawaii or something equally grand for their salesman of the year, I don’t have the heart to tell her that we’re giving her a 30% off Smashing coupon if she wins – although all must agree that our coupons are worth their weight in gold!

Now, it’s already been admitted that she is selling the clothes off our back – mostly with our permission – but now she’s giving away our gifts from our sample-maker.

Ace and I took our sample-maker out to lunch last week to talk about the next season and to thank her for all of her hard work on the last season.  At the end of lunch, she offered to make Ace and I some matching headbands for our Smashing outfits.

Spinner sends an email yesterday to us – I found these cool headbands in the package I just picked up from the sample-maker and I’ve given them away, and boy they really look cute!   “What?!? ” Ace replies, “You’ve given away my custom thank you headband?!?”.    Spinner replies, “LOL”.

All I can say, welcome to the club from the partner that has had her team uniform sold from her closet twice! But I think Spinner may have just lost Ace’s vote for Salesman of the year.

Have a Smashing weekend!

PS  To the lucky recipients of the headbands – please enjoy them guilt free and we’re seriously happy that you love them.  We just couldn’t pass on this story!
