Team work makes the Vintage dream work. Not all heroes wear capes, sometimes they wear company branded fleeces.
Welcome to the next instalment of our Meet the Team series, today we have Nicola. One of our favourite things is learning more about our favourite retailers and the team behind the business. So, its only right we do the same.
Nicola is our sales assistant. She lovingly wraps and ships all your orders on a Saturday. She is the lady you have all met if you have popped into our shop over the weekend. We have come up with a few questions to get to know her a little better….
Name: Nicola King
Job Role: Saturday Girl
Favourite Quote: Everything you ever dreamed of is on the other side of fear.
How long have you worked at Scaramanga: A year and a half.
Whats your ‘Best Bit’ about your role: It’s peaceful and calm on Saturdays, and customers are relaxed and happy, often shopping with their families for just the right piece for their home.
Name your Top 3 films: I’m much more of a reader than a film buff, but I love British movies, particularly Mike Leigh films – Another Year, The Sense of an Ending, Vera Drake.
Why do you like working for Scaramanga: I like helping people find things for their homes. I love the idea that the items have a new lease of life instead of being replaced by modern mass-produced stuff.
Whats your favourite Bag from the store: I really like the Hamilton. If I were a smart office worker I’d carry my Mac Laprtop and Very Important Papers in one of those.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work: I’m studying for a PhD in Food Science, so I spend my time exploring ways to encourage people to eat a more sustainable, healthy diet incorporating traditional Scottish foods such as oats and barley, and sustainably produced meat and fish.
We hope you love getting to know our terrific team here at Scaramanga. We love sharing a little more behind the scenes with you. Leave us a comment below if you liked this post or give us an idea of what you would like to see more of.
