Buying, up-cycling and selling products at vintage fairs, but predominantly creating 1950’s style dresses, coats, tops and other clothing. This is a personal endeavor to learn the beginnings about starting up a business. I have been making and selling my dresses casually, to fit around my job; I can always be spotted in something home made!
Poppy is a small London based company who illustrate stories of a girl called Poppy and her dog Fred, these are then transformed into fabric prints of which the fabric is made into vintage style dresses. Whilst on placement here, I sewed up dress samples, helped with print design, organised and put together photo shoots, helped at trade shows with presentation/visual merchandising and large quantity sales. I also took part in everyday running of the office, alongside assisting with the sales and marketing side of the business. Not to forget making lots of tea!
As bar manager my duties involved the running of the restaurant and helping the chefs in the kitchen when necessary. It was my responsibility to manage the team in allocating duties and ensure a smooth running of service. Other key responsibilities I had included cashing up, managing floats, change ordering, stock control including stock checks, writing rotas, creating cleaning rotas to meet EHO specifications, open and close up checklists and ensuring they were carried out to the best possible standard. It was also important for me to identify good sales opportunities and utilize them, especially over major holidays. My responsibilities also meant facing issues and problem solving, whether it was with deliveries or with fellow colleagues. I also understand the behind the scenes side of running a business including profit and loss, margins and completing WTR’s. I also organized and ran the social media for the Woolpack, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, including managing the Tripadvisor page and responding to comments, of which there were several very lovely personal compliments. I also just helped build the website for The Woolpack Yard. I enjoyed that I could integrate my graphics skills that I have gained over the last few years in other useful ways. I had full control over the events organisation for the bar including private functions. This involved insuring that everything was prepared in advance and that everything as organized efficiently and appropriately for the specifications of that particular event.
