Q&A: Who are those awesome people in pink?

If you’ve attended a Divine Consign Presale, then you’ve come face to face with a Pink Lady.  We couldn’t run a Presale without these girls (and guys) and we wouldn’t want to.  We call them our STAFF.  They are some of the sweetest and hardest working women and men we know.  Here’s what being on…
