Queen of Hearts Named One of Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses

The Queen has been selected among the second annual class of the Bulldog 100! Sponsored by the University of Georgia Alumni Association, the Bulldog 100 is an annual program that determines and awards the 100 fastest growing businesses that are owned or operated by UGA Alumni. Rankings are based on a compounded annual growth rate of revenues for the past three years.

This year's event took place on January 22 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis where Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors president, Stacey Smith Anderson, ABJ Advertising/Marketing ‘80, was presented with the award.

"Being among the top 100 Bulldog-run businesses in the country is a great honor. With more than 700 Nominations from across the U.S., it is truly an achievement to make the list,” said UGA Alumni Association Executive Director Deborah Dietzler.

We at the Queen certainly are honored by this recognition, and we're in great company. Thank you to all the dealers and customers who helped us achieve our goal!

An Engagement Fit For A Queen

Since the holidays are such a popular time for engagements, we wanted to share this cute proposal story from September.

Matthew, one-half of a couple who frequently visits the Queen to shop together, came to us about two weeks beforehand to set everything up. He asked if he could propose to his girlfriend on a Sunday afternoon and bring a professional photographer.

Of course we were delighted to oblige!

It was wonderful to be a part of Matthew and Nicole’s special day! Their wedding is set for April this year, and we’re hoping they might have a few items from the Queen on their wish list! ;)

To all our Queen fans, we also want to let you know we've launched our new website. Please take a look and we'd love to have your feedback!
