Poppy-May Fill

Warehouse

The favorite child of Sarah-Jane and Jerome, Poppy started helping out at Parnell+co almost a decade ago when she was just a wee lass packing goodie bags and serving coffee at the Auckland Gift Fairs. She first became inspired by her parents line of work on a family holiday to China in 2012 at a buying fair... even if she only lasted a couple hours in the heat. After many years working in retail and doing the odd stunt job in film, Poppy began working full time with Parnell+co In July 2021. She loves causing havoc for her husband Mason working in the warehouse together and looks forward to assisting in social media and website upgrades.
