I grew up working in our family owned department store. I’ve been in retail /sales/ service my entire career.
My client and I meet four times a year and scour TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack for various wardrobe necessities. She is a perfect size 8 and simply needs some direction, suggestions and someone to bring her heaps of clothes to try on and decide upon.
Her Parents: Mr and Mrs Senior needed help cleaning out drawers of old books, cassette tapes and movies from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. They had a few cupboards filled with the grandkids’ ancient Candyland, Scrabble, Monopoly games …all were worn and had accumulated a decade of dust. Their garage, while well-organized was filled with “one man’s junk is another man’s treasures.” All agreed, it was time to “Let it go”
Toss, Donate, Shred, Keep – that was our mantra as we sorted though boxes, crates, bikes, file cabinets form the 1960’s, old magazines, maps, ancient billing statements and mementos. The couple was very agreeable and dedicated to “Clear the Clutter!” And, we did.
Their grand daughter, 20, flew in from the East Coast and needed help with luggage, a transfer to the hotel, shopping, and a mini tour of San Francisco so she could get the lay of the land. That week end, we drove to Santa Clara University for her interview at the school.
Three generations – delightful – agreeable and great to work with -and, friends forever.
