Learn the Ropes in the Exciting, Fast-Paced World of Fashion (or, Do Our Bitch Work Please)

For four years, Josh and I ran Tigertree pretty much by ourselves.  Like all angles- buying, selling, cleaning, book keeping, merchandising, advertising, event planning, etc.  We are thrilled that after so much effort, time and love, the shop is growing into something that is bigger than our little hands can handle.  A few months ago, Brittany Willis joined our team, taking over the shop on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  She is awesome and so much nicer than we are- if you have not been in on those days for a while, I certainly encourage it.

But even with the support of a great third member, we are all feeling a little overwhelmed with the day to day tasks of the store.  In short, and I can not help but be honest here, we need someone to do our bitch work.  Steaming/pricing new shipments, making buttons for the chicken machine, packaging web orders, doing runs to Impero.. plus, of course, utilizing any skills that this person may have to offer to the shop (photography, graphic design, merchandising, etc).

This position can only be repaid by a store discount and the occasional free coffee (which that person will be picking up...).  We can offer credit for anyone who needs an internship.

Basically, this is really only an attractive opportunity for someone who is interested in learning about what we do and how we do it.  Ideally, we would like the person to work one day a week with Brittany (Wednesday or Thursday) and one day with us (the other days), but this is super flexible.  One day a week would be fine.

We have had so many people ask us for internships in the past and we have had to turn them down because we just didn't have anything for them to do.  We now have things to do.  Lots of them.  Shoot me an email at if you are interested!
