I love my job. Weird, I know. People aren't supposed to love what they do almost every day. But I work at a vintage shop, so it's kind of hard to not appreciate the freedom of dressing in vintage everyday, listening to whatever music I want, and sometimes helping people find crazy costumes for disco parties.
And my boss is awesome, she's had the store about 8 years, and hired me nearly 4 years ago. Partly because I spent so much time there :)
A normal day involves putting new merchandise out on the racks, working on endless repairs, helping customers find an outfit for a play/party/date, and putting together merchandise displays. And enjoying lunch from the french bakery, while sometimes finishing a Sherlock Holmes story if it's a slow day :)
Working at a vintage shop is also one of the reasons I have so much clothing, I have first pick after all! But, you can visit our Etsy shop here.
