I loved, loved those Gucci ankle strap shoes. The heels were super high, but it also had a thicker platform in the front making it easier for woman to walk in. We offered the consignor a 50/50 deal, which is something that we normally don't do, but there are those occasions that we make exceptions.
Karina and I loved the consignor with the Just Cavalli gold studded jacket, and we were certainly sad to let that great jacket walk out the store. But you know what -- sometimes consignors come in thinking that they will get tons of money for their items, and, as much as we would love for our clients to make a lot of money, we also need to run a business and price things reasonably. Our formula for pricing is a third to a quarter of the price of retail and that is something that I cannot change specially without Tara's or the home office authorization. But something tells me that this consignor will be back soon!
Tara's eco-party for Earth Day was a great idea. Unfourtunately things did not go so smooth during the prep but the party overall was a success.
All I have to say is that day Tara was very stressed out for reasons that I could not understand. We really had all under control, and everyone contributed to make everything happen. It was such a small event that there was really no need or reason to be stressed out. Since Tara is the manager, whenever she is in a certain mood it affects all of us, and I just had to say something. I never thought it would have escalated to the point it did, but I guess it was good for Tara to release some of her stress talking to me. Of course, I do regret saying certain things, which I thought were innapropiate such as the "go home" comment. I guess next time I'll choose my words carefully. Prepping for the party should have being a fun process, and it wasn't.
FYI: I crakcked my iPhone screen the night before digging into dirty trash cans in the bodegas's uptown looking for "green" bottles. I was not stressed out because I don't let such minor thing get to me. And we are talking about an iPhone! Hello!
Another FYI: Ambria's Cuban sandwiches were delicious!
