we need an extra pair of hands! 

We have two part-time positions available at our store. You must be available to work weekends and holidays. We are looking for someone energetic, friendly, observant and detail oriented. Retail experience would be wonderful but is not essential. 

As a member of the shop staff at Gravel & Gold you’ll play an important role in the overall vibe and experience for everyone that comes in. We want to make it a friendly, helpful and informative atmosphere.

If you can happily provide that, while multi-tasking and taking initiative on a range of projects and tasks, then get in touch! 

Your Responsibilities 

Learn about products & makers and share this information with the customers

Take care of the shop and make sure it looks its best at all times! 

Cleaning and Merchandising

Provide an inviting, fun and relaxed atmosphere

Register duties, gift wrapping etc.

Keep the shelves fully stocked and ensuring all items are tagged

Opening & closing the shop 

Occasionally managing events/workshops after shop close

Fulfilling and shipping online orders

Keep music playing at all times

Answering all manner of relevant and tangential questions: where to get lunch, yes we have a bathroom etc.

Please send your resume, your preferred number of work hours a week as well as a short paragraph on why you'd like to join Gravel & Gold to amber(at)gravelandgold.com 

This position requires you to be willing to have a somewhat flexible schedule, occasionally working overtime during busy periods: ie: sample sales, holidays etc.

Must be available to start in mid-June. 



WHAT IS CROWDFUNDING?
Crowdfunding is a way to raise money using many people to reach a monetary target. This means that with every order you place in our crowdfunding campaign you are funding the production of one of a kind Gravel & Gold Goods!


WHY IS GRAVEL & GOLD DOING THIS? 
Crowdfunding gives customers the power to produce! If you want it, make it happen! Over the years we’ve had requests for various boob products and this will allow us to finally produce them. Do you have a great idea for the Boobs? Email us at submissions@gravelandgold.com


WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Your participation means the difference between a product coming to life or remaining a mere dream. Those of you who participate will also get the item at a reduced price of 15% off. There is always a chance that the item will be very successful and sell out in the crowdfunding stage, this way you ensure you get your item.


CAN'T I JUST WAIT FOR THE PRODUCT TO BE MADE BEFORE I BUY IT? 
Absolutely, but you will miss out on the discounted price we offer during the crowdfunding period.



The Gravel & Gold gals asked their mommas to tell us their favorite items we sell in the shop. Not only does this make our gifting life extra breezy, but it might just help your gifting as well.

1. Patricia Yenawine Dip Glazed Mug

Paula says: "I appreciate the Yenawine pottery because the surfaces remind me of rock formations I might encounter on a hike in the desert."

 

2. Mackerel Sky Card by Saturn Press

 Paula says: "The Saturn Press season cards are lovely, I'm always looking for an inspiring card for thank you note or other snail-mail communiques."

 

3. Antlia Scoop T-Shirt in First Falls Print

Paula says: "Threads-wise my favorite top is the Antlia scoop with the First Falls print. Very vibrant cool colors. I was so pleased with how well my G&G tops worked for travel in the Yucatan - cool and light, easy to wash and quick to dry. They also blended nicely with the local architecture." (see photo below!)

 




Paula says: "Re: the Pt. Reyes hammered hoops, I've had 2 pairs, one gold and one silver, and have relied on them for the past few year for all occasions and no occasion. On the rustic to elegant continuum, they occupy the sweet spot."

 

 

 





Michelle says: "The cup is playfully glazed….the colors look like dawn in some magical place."
