a bit about us...
Reclaimed Rose is a small boutique shop in Columbiana, OH featuring handmade goods for home and life. There are currently about 35 local artisans that sell their handmade items at the shop. The owner, Jessaca, is a 2008 graduate of YSU and works on site creating hand made goods and also curates a selection of new merchandise ordered in small batches for the shop. At Reclaimed Rose we work one on one with customers to design custom items that fit them perfectly. We also curate the shop to fit the vintage, whimsical and feminine vibe of the shop. Product lines include jewelry, wall art and home decor, children’s items, pet items, body care items and some vintage goods.
what we need...
I am looking for someone who has an interest or experience in:
• Email communication
• Photographing merchandise
• Social Media Interaction
• Organizing the shop
• Normal retail duties
• Setting up for shows
• Packaging orders
• Posting on our website and listing items on Etsy
• Accompany me on occasional buying trips
And bonus if you can find someone with sewing experience and/or overall craftiness.
This person must be friendly, dependable, trustworthy, a self starter and have reliable transportation to and from my shop in Columbiana, OH. They must also be have some availability during business hours (Tuesday - Saturday from 11:30am-5pm) and during some show dates. I am flexible on the hours in which they would like to schedule, but they do have to be within those time frames.
This internship will encompass all aspects of running a small business and I will teach them how I started, as well as, how I do financial paperwork, order stock, find vendors, apply for wholesale accounts. I will also show them how to operate different social media platforms, monitor performance, manage a web site, blog and manage an Etsy shop. They will have the normal duties of working in a retail shop, such as pricing, product placement, window design, assisting customers and completing transactions. If they wish to, they may accompany me to craft shows and learn how to set up, interact with customers, etc.
This internship is unpaid. However, those who create their own handmade items that fit in with the vibe of the shop, may be offered a complimentary shelf space to sell their merchandise.
