Q: What is one of your favorite products from your line?
A: It's really hard to have a favorite, but I love our playing cards called PLAY NICE (Please). The entire message of the deck is to simply be nice to one another, and have fun!
Q: What does your team look like?
A: I (Kerry) am the only full-time Calhoun & Co. person, but I do have lots of help in a variety of ways! My husband, Bobby, helps me in so many ways behind the scenes - everything from trade show setup/build-out, to accounting, to being my sounding board for every idea I have. Others than help me are my best friend, Greta with managing the studio, Caroline with organization, my mom with making product tags, and my dad helping pack orders. I also receive plenty of advice from my brothers and sisters AND their spouses who are all small business owners - shout out to Field Trip Jerky & Sophie Hughes Jewelry!
