enewton donates $2,500 to Pamper Me Pink fund By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Elizabeth Newton loves Culpeper. The jewelry designer and entrepreneur was so impressed with the town during her visit to Pepperberries Oct. 2 that she earmarked a portion of her proceeds in October for the Pamper Me Pink fund - a fund originally created by Pepperberries owner Sharon Clark to help provide mammograms for the community. On Monday, Pepperberries got word that enewton will be donating $2,5000 to the Pink fund. It was Clark’s energy and the town’s charm that spoke to Newton during her visit. “My life was forever changed today,” Newton said in an Instagram post. “The experience I had at Pepperberries and meeting people in this amazing town is something I will hold onto forever. Culpeper, I am blown away by how such a small charming town has pulled together and genuinely supported one another and local business. “Because of this, they have amazing restaurants, amazing shopping, happy and joyful people and are incredibly inclusive. Pepperberries, you 2018_HOH_Ad_Cpep.pdf 1 11/5/18 don’t need to write a book on how to
treat a customer, you need to be a destination for all trying to get better or trying to figure it out. I amy beyond honored to call you a partner and friend.” Clark and her staff met Newton in Atlanta at the annual gift show - the largest in the nation. A sales rep that serves Pepperberries had been pitching enewton jewelry for about a year and a half but Clark wasn’t sure she wanted to add another jewelry line at the time. That was, until she met the owner herself. She laughs about the meeting, thinking she was only going to see the jewelry but was quickly told that Newton was going to meet with her as well. “I was shocked,” Clark said. “Sheila and I were there for literally three hours just having conversations. We never touched a piece of jewelry in three hours. By the time I finished the conversation I was in love with her.” Newton, a mother to triplet 12-year-old girls and a 9-year-old boy, juggles being a mother, wife and entrepreneur while churning out custom jewelry.
