Spotlight On...Matt, Shipping & Receiving Director

Posted by Rhinestones Unlimited on Mar 28th 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... ...Matt!

Aptly stated, Matt Price. Germs hater, beard wearer, whip cracker, finder of rare and shiny objects. The Indiana Jones of the modern rhinestone world.

I promise. Now, I'm just making it weird...
