Barbour Spangle had the pleasure of interviewing Sami Price, the owner of Just Priceless, in High Point, NC. It doesn’t get much better than a family owned business with flowers and gifts in the same place!
A. My mom had an in house flower business that she started after I graduated from college. She did weddings and showroom work. I helped her out when she was desperate. I helped prepare flowers, fill buckets, etc. – grunt work! I also didn’t mind copying floral designs, but never did one from scratch. MANY years later, I was on the hunt for a creative outlet to fulfill my artistic urges and signed up for a booth at the Junior League Holiday bazaar. I made faux wreaths, garlands, etc and at the last minute decided I needed something “REAL” in the booth! The BUG BIT!
A. I would work as a Visual Display merchandiser for a company like Anthropologie or someone with a creative vision!!! My favorite thing to do! OR! I would do freelance wedding flower work….helping flower people I know (or know of, all over the US and Europe)!
A. Retail is challenging and unpredictable.
A. I really get all the social interaction I need in a day of work
A. Never put all your eggs in one basket.
A. The Help
A. A Dude Ranch when my children were young with my parents…we flew into Albuquerque and drove to Colorado via Santa Fe among other stops. It was wonderful.
A. At HOME! I try to plan my Sundays spending time at home enjoying some R&R.
A. I am motivated and inspired by any artistic expression. Be it a painting, a piece of art work, architecture, magazines, a great store (I am totally a paper girl)!
A. I’m a wine girl. However, I do love me a Gin and Tonic with lime!
A. Spending time with my children! They are 26 and 29 and are fun, smart, loving, caring and keep me on my toes…and I think they actually like me!
A. I admire all those that achieve the balance of work and pleasure that I truly can’t seem to grasp.
A. I would say visit when Furniture Market is going on because it is just unbelievable what all happens in this little town twice a year!
It was a pleasure speaking with Sami and we are honored to share her story here.
