G’day gift givers, Well this post is to let our Basketcase community know about the saddest day for me in the history of the Basketcase. We have closed our Sydney warehouse this week and consolidated the business into Melbourne. While this sounds like a smart move and will make life easier for the Chief Basketcase, it has been the most emotional and the saddest week that I can remember. The team in Sydney were like family to me and I am so sad to be saying goodbye to the best bunch of people that any employer could ask for!
Jo Groger, my manager, is not only a fantastic manager, but a woman that I am so proud to say is a friend of mine. Jo always went above and beyond for me, she was funny, brilliant and awesome! I will miss working with her so much! Jo now has a great job and I have to say that her new employers are very lucky to have a professional, hard working and incredibly hard working person on their team.
Jasmine Neal has been working for me since October, she left school and started with us to help through Christmas 2016 on the front desk printing orders, answering phones and helping all our customers send love and best wishes for about 8 months. Let me tell you that Jasmine has been a ray of sunshine since I met her, what an amazing young lady! Her incredible support and hard work is a credit to her, I will miss her funny smile and fun personality so much!
Alison Ward, this woman has a kindness that is beyond anyone I have met! I will miss her beautiful heart and soul, she has a talent with gift making that always blows me away, and her hard working nature has been something that I have been so grateful for!
So to Jo, Jasmine and Alison, you were the stars in my life and I will miss you all terribly, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work and incredible support… I am so grateful to have had you in my life and my business!
