I start my new job today!! I am going to be working for Calico Corners or now as it is called Calico Home. Here is the website is you would like to check it out http://www.calicocorners.com/. This is such an answer to prayer. I will be working 30-35 hours a week. I will be a sales associate helping people select fabrics for custom draperies, upholstery and furniture. Although this is not exactly what I thought I would be doing when I moved to the Ham... it is a great job with great hours and it gets me out of this apartment: a huge plus!
I do recall one of the first times that Winnie and Jessica mentioned needing some advice on home decorating and design and I promptly announced to them, "I don't do draperies." This was my sarcastic way of trying to explain that I was working in commercial interior design (at the time) and I usually did not get the chance to do the decorating portion that would include such details as draperies. Now, as I have learned the hard way one too many times... when it comes to being an interior designer, NEVER SAY NEVER!!
Overall I am very excited about this new position. The manager and staff at the store are very nice and helpful. The hours for retail are great - Monday thru Saturday 10-6 and closed on Sundays. I really can't ask for more. As many of you know, these really are my kind of hours. I am definitely not a morning person and usually don't really like to carry on conversations until after about 9:00 or 9:30 anyway - this will be perfect!
