At Fishbox, we continue to get love from all of our faithful customers! As a way to show our thanks, we like highlight one customer each month. This month, in our second edition of User Spotlight, we chose to highlight Chivonne Washington.
We like to thank Chivonne for being apart of our monthly user spotlight. We love all of our customers and wouldn't be here if not for them.
Tell us a little about yourself in a few sentences (what do you do for work, what do you enjoy doing outside of work, etc?)
I am an Interior and Architectural Designer. I am also the founder of a Custom Home Accessories Company called Pillow Pillowz. Outside of working (all the time) I enjoy simple things like going to Barnes and Nobles and going to the movies with my husband (even though he talks all the way through lol).
How long have you been a Fishbox user and how did you find out about us?
I've been with Fishbox at least a year I think. I learned of service by following the founders blog. I was inspired by his vision and his story as an entrepreneur.
How were you getting packages before you joined Fishbox?
Initially I would have my packages sent to my Grandmothers house which is in NJ, about an hour away from where I live. It somewhat worked because I was going to see her often but it wasn't fun when she thought my packages came to the house and they hadn't! Sometimes she would mistake her packages for mine, which meant I would drive out there for nothing! As I got busier and couldn't go visit her as much, I just stopped ordering things altogether.
What’s your missed package “horror story”?
One time someone stole my Dyson Slim battery. Once they figured out that it was useless to them, they brought it back with a note on it apologizing.
Tell us a little bit about your business and how we can find more information.
Basically, I provide interior and architectural design services for both residential and commercial environments. I do a lot of conceptual design and renderings. I also make handcrafted decorative items for the home like throw pillows, wall art, dinner decor, hand painted vases and more. Our website is mscywash.com and we can be found on Instagram @pillowpillowz @shebringzdecor @sbd_interior_arch_services
What are some of your favorite places to shop online?
Definitely Amazon and Wayfair
If you had to guess the number of packages that you’ve received since you joined Fishbox, what do you think that number would be?
I'd say maybe 30 or less
If you had to make one suggestion to make Fishbox better, what would you recommend?
I absolutely love Fishbox the way it is. Even the changes have been comfortable. I would like to see the company grow to the point of picking up packages that need to be shipped out. I don't know how much sense that would make or what that would look like but there are times I just don't feel like dealing with the drama of shipping a package in the city, having to find parking, long lines etc. I would also like to see Fishbox get an actual location so that you have the option of pick up or delivery.
What’s your favorite thing about Fishbox?
My absolute favorite thing about Fishbox is the security of knowing I will definitely receive my packages along with the quality customer service. I can totally count of them and that is a very good feeling.
