Meet Emily Colby
Emily was born and raised in a small NYC suburb and spent summers in Vermont. Emily rode her bike to a local fashion boutique after school for her first job. It was here she learned customer service and used her style and flair to make her customers happy. She studied Fashion Merchandising and Retailing in college and was quickly hired to work for a textile company in NYC. She went on to work in the buying office of a large Northeast Department store before starting a family.
Soon after her husband and she had their first child, they moved to North Carolina, where her family grew by 2 more daughters. While her children were growing up Emily was using her creative talents and energy to volunteer, coach sports and creative contests, and at the same time become an expert baker, running her own her own bakery for 6 years.
She still enjoys baking her famous red velvet cake in her free time, as well as gourmet cooking, boating, waterskiing and cycling. She is a self professed crime show junkie and has seen every Law and Order.
Emily joined Furnitureland South to go back to her roots, helping people in a wonderful store environment, find fashion for their homes. She invites you to give her a call at 336-822-3834 or email her at [email protected] You may even get to learn her secrets for cream cheese frosting!
