Meet Olivia! She is one of the oldest additions to the 5 Pound family and we couldn't love her more. You won't meet a more giving and thoughtful girl than her. Read our interview to learn more about Olivia and drop by our Farmers Park store to see how sweet she is for yourself! 
You are such a selfless individual and your love for helping others inspires us! What inspires you to be so giving and thoughtful?
  • Oh thank you so much! First off, I would say what inspires me most is a whole lot of Jesus and also the people in my life! I have some of the kindest, most caring, and most inspiring people around me!
So lets talk about those cookies you always make us for our business meetings.... When did you discover your love for baking?
  •  I actually don't remember exactly when I started baking, I've always loved it and loved baking for people and get-togethers! In these past few years, though, it's become more of a hobby and passion for me.
It is no secret that you are a great addition to the 5 Pound team! What has been one of your favorite memories that you have made working here?
  • One of my favorite memories that I have made while working at 5 Pound is the day before we opened the south side store! A group of us worked all day getting the store ready and running errands while laughing, snacking, and having a ton of fun at the same time! It didn't even feel like work.
 How would you describe your style?
  • Hmmm, I don't really know if I have a certain style, I just wear what I want that day! Some days it'll be girly with pink and sparkly earrings and then the next day I might be wearing all black and boots. I love color as well as black, white, and neutrals! I've always been a big fan of floral, too!
 What are some of your favorite lines that we carry/ organizations that we give back to?
  • Two of my favorite organizations we give back to are The Giving Keys and Krotchet Kids! I love The Giving Keys because each key is personal to you and your story and I feel like each key can tell a story and I also love that they help people transiting out of homelessness! I love Krotchet Kids because of the fact that each lady that makes the product signs it. It makes each thing you buy very personable and everything they make is also very soft and cozy! A favorite line we carry is Tulle just because it's all so cute!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
  • In five years, I would like to see myself done with college and running my own bakery and organization. I want to open a bakery that gives back, kind of like 5 Pound! The future is so exciting and I can't wait to see what's next!

Olivia has been working for us for well over a year now and we love having her as part of the 5 Pound team! She works at our Farmers Park location. These photos were taken at Grayson Home in downtown Springfield.
