Upward Comedy: Kristin Humphrey

Please give a warm welcome to the one and the only:Hump2Kristin Humphrey!

Kristin plays a dynamic role as server/bartender at Postino Central. She was recently awarded MVP for the Quarter because of her untouchable energy, ability to continually cast light over her team members, and production of ever-lasting experiences with guests. (No, literally there are guests who are never going to forget her…)

With a little help from some co-workers, Kristin has decided to steal the scene on a different stage: stand-up comedy. She’s never been one for stage fright, so when handed a mic, she took it and ran. Performing 2-3 nights a week, she channels her passion for making people laugh, combined with her free spirit, into quite possibly her favorite hobby.

This coming Friday, February 27th, Kristin will be performing at Stand Up Scottsdale’s You’ve Got the Goods! Come out and support one of our talented team members.

Local Love: Here On the Corner

 Julie Kent, one of our incredible neighbors at Postino Annex, is the owner of Here On the Corner: a local, unique, fun and fashion forward boutique! Julie spent some time with us talking about what it’s like to be a local business in Tempe, and the things that set her store apart from competitors.

Outside-of-building

Tell us about your store: Here On the Corner is a unique boutique in Tempe. Our mission is local passion, global fashion. With that, our biggest priority is to offer local designers and/or products for a cause, whenever we can. In addition, we stay on top of the trends while keeping it affordable to our customers. We carry many one-of-a-kind items; so if you see something you like, grab it because it likely won’t be there on your next visit!

How long has your store been open? This store has been open for 10 years, but I have now owned it a little over 3 years.

What can customers expect to find? Or not find? Shoppers can expect to find men’s and women’s casual attire, party attire, and work-to-happy hour clothing. We also specialize in unique jewelry pieces, handbags, hats and watches – everything made locally. You will find that our staff will remember you, give you personal attention, and be happy to see you every time!

And as far as what you won’t find…incredibly over-priced items!

Here-Staff

What do you love most about Tempe? Tempe is so young! There are a lot of changes and developments going on everywhere you look. It’s so fun to witness the change, and even better to be a part of it.

What do you love most about being a local business? I love the fact that I live, work, and play all within a one mile radius of each other. So yes, I’m a local business, but I also practice what I preach! I buy local for my home, family, and my business. It’s great because when you buy locally you know that your money stays in the local economy. But I’d have to say, the best part is that local businesses look out for each other and help one another out.

What is the most unique item we can find in your store? Spine wallet. It’s made of titanium and definitely a minimalist’s wallet – it even has a bottle opener on it. Oh, and men’s underwear! You may not think that it’s something we would have, but, we do!

What suggestions would you give to other local business? Stay involved in the community – everything from patronizing other local businesses, providing support, volunteering and getting to know your community. It helps give you a better idea of what your customers are looking for, too.

What is next for Here? More event collaborations with other local businesses, more locally made items in our store, and the rest is up to fate!

Next time you are in Tempe, be sure to support local by visiting Here On the Corner and contribute to #TempeRising !!
