Meet our sales associate, Shevonne! She's as sweet as her baking, and as artsy as Walt Disney. Ask to see her drawings next time you see her at our store at The Forks — she's super talented and we're putting in a formal request for portraits of the team, just get our good side.
1. What’s the most unusual thing you have done at Coal and Canary?

The beginners guide to removing wine stains and tears from your overpriced textbooks.

Smooth Jazz and Aged Shiraz

Procrastinate now, panic later (Although I think I need a new one)
10.What job would you want if you didn’t work at Coal and Canary?

16. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
Honestly, I would go back and change my mindset in grade school to follow my passions and not let people tell what they think my future should be. Life is too short to live it for someone else.
17. If you spent a day watching movies when you should have been at work, is it time wasted or well spent?
Is this a trick question? It mostly depends on the movies!
