new to modmood!
Posted on Sunday, March 4th, 2012 by Jeanne
as customer first to modmood and RETRO Consignment, i became passionate about this place! green, modern, vintage, stellar design team, outstanding customer relations, this place was dynamite! now…i am so exited to be a part of the team.
before I get ahead of my self, my name is michelle and i am working with pat (one of the owners) handling the vintage collectibles and also with jeanne (the other owner) and the design team in developing our “style” profile and interning in the design department.
our collectible vintage collection continues to grow. we are partnering with a very reputable company vandm.com (vintage and modern) based out of new york. v and m is an online marketplace for vintage and modern designer furnishings and other pieces. this partnership has expanded our customer base by reaching many customers outside of colorado. just recently, we shipped a laverne & estelle chair to paris- even though I haven’t been YET, I couldn’t help but get excited with the notion. we also shipped some fab barstools to arizona, and while working with the customer, learned her sister was a wonderful regular to the store. check us out
after majoring in psychology, i’m having so much fun working with the style profile (not sure if that is really the word to be used…still working on that) it’s a great tool to help people identify their style. we understand people can’t be easily categorized, especially if you are like me and your style is constantly changing but we are developing a fun and unique tool that helps you understand your likes and dislikes in your living environment. We developed a formula that combines (your root )where your heart is (your mood) what mood your in right now and your own personal edge (that thing that makes you unique).
this tool will enables us to understand you and your style better so that we can work with you to create a space that reflects the uniquely wonderful you. it is still in development but should be completed by mid-month and we look forward to sharing more with you.
everyday is a new day here. the customers/clients, consignors and artists are all so intriguing and i love to listen to the dialogue, especially “my mom had one of these!” people get excited and are having fun! right now, as I type, we are being serenaded by a customer and he is spelling mississippi and many other words backwards—i love it.
i’m excited to be a part of the team and look forward to you meeting you on your next excursion to “the mood”.
