Name: Peyton Thorp
What do you do at Mary Frances Flowers?
I am the Wholesale Accounts Manager. I handle all wholesale orders, inquiries and landing new accounts!
What you like most about what you do?
I love interacting with people in the retail business and sharing all of what MFF has to offer! It’s also a perk working with Mary Frances on a weekly basis… :)
What are your other creative pursuits?
I am a watercolor artist and illustrator and started Peyton’s Post, a stationery and custom art business, about a year and half ago. I sell notecards, prints and original work, but the majority of my business is custom work. So I get to work with clients on a variety of projects including invitations, wedding materials, animal portraits, you name it!
Where do you find inspiration?
Too many to list! Definitely places I’ve traveled to both near and far. We vacation at Wrightsville Beach so I get tons of ideas from being on the coast. I also grew up riding horses, so the equestrian lifestyle and community has always been a source of inspiration for me.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
Greece or go on an African safari
What’s your most treasured accessory? Is there a story behind it?
A diamond ring that was my mom’s original engagement ring. We got it re-set for my 21st birthday. I still only wear it on occasion, I’m too afraid to lose it!
Tie between Ben and Jerrys chocolate fudge brownie ice cream and Hayes Barton heath bar cake. I also love dirt pudding.
Favorite MFF piece?
