Get to Know Danya Phillips

How long have you been at Knick Knacks?

I have been a vendor for 14 yrs.

What motivated you to start your own business? What did you do before (or now)?

I had been shopping in Knick Knicks for years and collecting “a lot of stuff.” So, this great idea came to mind to become a vendor for “just 6 months” …which has turned into 14 years!

Prior to becoming a vendor, I worked for AT&T starting as a telephone operator in 1985.

What items do you sell?

My first love are my flower arrangements, which I do myself. However, I also sell small pieces of high-quality furniture, tables, home décor and anything that fits in my vehicle!

What do you like about owning your own business and having your store at Knick Knacks?

I love being my own Boss, freedom to choose work hours…The excitement of buying and selling my product. I genuinely enjoy interacting with my customers. Over the years, I have met so many good people just wanting to tell their stories. For that alone, my experience has been absolutely priceless.

Besides running your businesses at Knick Knacks, what other hobbies do you have?

I love to work in my flower garden.
