LINDA L

Head Buyer/Sales Associate
Email:

Linda leads our buying team. We strive to stay a step ahead of the game with Linda at our helm. One day she's wardrobing her clients on the sales floor in Mequon, and later that week she's on the red eye from Vegas market back to Mequon for hugs from her 3 children. Then it's off to the Big Apple. When she isn’t scouting trends she's in negotiations with designers and vendors. I don’t think we can recall a vendor ever saying "no" to our Linda. Are you getting the picture? This women is a machine!
