Life of an Intern : Grandma Funk Vintage

12:00 PM

Since June this year i have been working closely with the lovely people over at Grandma Funk Vintage clothing. I first Met the owner Mel at The Civilian Chavez runway shows that i where i was the back stage coordinator. After hearing she needed some help running the online store and with my June holidays just about to start i thought it would be the perfect internship. To my surprise it turned out selling stuff online at the scale she was anyway was harder then i thought. Theres getting the stock (shipments of American, European & Japanese vintage), casting models and booking them for shoots, hair make up and shooting the items, editing and uploading photos then theres answering the zillion questions from customers. Then theres the pretty packaging and rushing before the post office closes.
It literally is a 24 hour job.

But there is heaps of fun in it all. Going through all the new stock and getting to style looks for shoots.
Also i do lookbooks for my blog so far i have done winter lookbook & Disney Mickey shoot.
I have a summer lookbook in the works as well soon as exams are over. Been taking some cool pieces for the shoot each week when i go in to work.

Grandma Funk also stocks at a store called Vintage Garage so if you want to try on the pieces your self make sure you make your way down to the store. I am doing a post on the store soon too so stay tuned.

Vintage Market stalls is another place you can find Grandma Funk Vintage. I got to work at my first stall for them the other week at the RACV motor classica show where a GF dress was featured in

I also helped set up and connect all of Grandma Funk social media so make sure you are following them on Facebook, twitter, tumblr & Instagram for all the latest. 

I've learnt so much over the last few months and cannot wait to see what the summer has in stock for me and the rest of the Grandma Funk team. When i started it had nearly 1000 fans and now it has over 4000.

Heres a little insight into the world of Grandma Funk through the photos i have taken on the Grandma Funk Instagram and my Instagram. Be sure to be following us for all the sneak peaks
