As you may have noticed if you’ve been by the shop lately, I (Stephanie!) am quite a bit pregnant! I am expecting a baby boy (my second boy #boymom 🙂 ) in late May. In preparation for my transition, we have a few changes at the shop. Terrin, who many of you already know, is now a full-time Store Manager! We’re so glad to have her taking care of things and bringing her creativity to us almost everyday of the week.
We will also be looking for additional part time help! This is primarily a sales position, but as usual we love to honor any additional creative talents you may have and have listed skills we are always on the lookout for. Please read below if you’re interested and pass along if you know anyone who might be!
