This is a little segment I like to call “Get to Know You!” Over the coming months, I’ll be featuring my coworkers and giving them a little questionnaire – it’s a chance for you to get to know the women who work at The Rare Pair a little bit better!
How long have you worked at The Rare Pair?
A year and a half when I was at St. Olaf and I started again in November of 2008. So, four and a half years total!
Favorite brand (of the moment) that we carry?
Can I have two? I love Børn boots for fall. And Ellington bags.
What do you think is the most comfortable shoe at The Rare Pair?
What’s the strangest or funniest thing that’s happened to you while working at The Rare Pair?
Earlier this month I got a call from a guy wanting my advice on how he could get information about a “rare pair” of 1988 Air Force Nikes. I asked if he was familiar with our store. He said, “No, but I just really need some information on this rare shoe.” It took a couple of times of me explaining that we don’t really deal with “rare” shoes for him to get it. He was very serious!
What do you like most about your job?
The Rare Pair is a really warm and inviting place to work. I like working with community members on a daily basis. You really feel like you’re involved in the community, and it’s fun to work at a store that people truly enjoy visiting! And – I love my coworkers!
