Spotlight On...Leslie, Shipping

Posted by Rhinestones Unlimited on Mar 29th 2013

In my sleuthing journalism, I've uncovered some sweet, some smarmy truths about the folks behind your glittering Rhinestone Unlimited packages. Who are these people on the other side of your order, really? I've dug deep with scrutinizing questions, and quote the workers in their own words [with some spelling and grammatical corrections. Also, I have interjected my own comments in brackets]. Read on, dear readers- the sublime exposés will shock and intimidate! 

Hey you in the booth- turn that spotlight on... ...Leslie!


Nicknames: Leelee, Les, Lezlee, Sccott 

Number of years at Rhinestones Unlimited: A handful, give or take a finger or two 

Favorite movie about stones: Romancing the Stone 

Movie you think could use more sparkle: Best In Show ['re right...] 

Your position at Rhinestones Unlimited: Chipper Shipper 

Your area of expertise in the rhinestone universe: Sparkling with my personality 

The great debate: Easy- you can’t have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat 

Favorite rhinestone-related adjective: Brilliance 

Pet Peeve: Don’t touch my armpits 

Best words of rhinestone wisdom: Just because it’s pretty doesn’t mean it’s not necessary 

Don’t be afraid to try: Anything 

Current color of your toenails, matched to a stone color: Purple Velvet [Swarovski] 

Activity you would like to try in the rhinestone world: Ballroom dancing 

The hot forecast- the next big rhinestone market: Martial arts [I’ll trust her opinion on this one- as a black belt, she’d know. Also, may I note that it REALLY is not a good idea to touch her armpits…] 

Favorite thing about being based in MN: Winter, spring, summer and fall 

Current drink of choice: Craft beer 

The current song playing in your head: “Girl On Fire,” Alicia Keys (my own words, of course) 

Three things still on your bucket list: Australia, Europe, become the Ultimate Warrior [don’t touch her armpits] 

Three things you’ve already crossed off: China- training in Kung Fu, learned to juggle, lived in Vegas (successfully) 

Favorite thing about Rhinestones Unlimited: The people 

Ryan Gosling, hot or not? Depends on the day. I prefer Ryan Reynolds. 

There's little to say about Leslie that Leslie doesn't already say. She tucks your products in good and tight (possibly after withholding pudding), tells them a story, turns the lights out, and sends them snug as a bug on their way to your door...except she does it a hundred times a day, under the pressure of the clock, all while doing a headstand and making the UPS driver laugh. I guess she's mastered her juggling act.
