Gift Shop

items for sale in Reiman Gardens Gift Shop

Hello Blog Readers! My name is Kasey, and I am the Retail Management Intern for the Gift Shop. This fall I will be entering my senior year at Iowa State University studying Apparel Merchandising and Design. My dream after graduation is to move out to California and work in a showroom selling wholesale merchandise to buyers or hopefully one day being able to have my very own clothing store.  For now, I am focusing on building my resume by getting as much experience in retail as I can while keeping up with my personal fashion blog!

As the Retail Management Intern, I work in the Gift Shop greeting visitors and helping them find that unique gift they are searching for. During the week I rearrange merchandise to keep displays new and exciting. I even had the opportunity to attend the Minnesota Gift Market to see first-hand wholesale buying and selling.  While I was there, I picked out merchandise to create a themed display that I will have full control over. You can check out my “Home and Relaxation” themed display and all of the new merchandise in the next few weeks!
