Children's Consignment Shop Seeks Intern

Written by:


Monk’s Trunk, a children’s consignment clothing and toy shop, is looking to hire a paid, part-time intern to help with all aspects of running a neighborhood retail store. They are looking for someone highly motivated, friendly, and interested in children’s fashion (or the ability to convincingly fake any of the above). Sense of humor is a plus.

Monk’s Trunk sells both new and gently used items. The ideal candidate will help them find cool toys and accessories to carry in our shop. He or she will also learn about designer children’s clothes in order to help evaluate and acquire items from consignors. This a great opportunity for a student to get experience as a buyer; to study and help determine price points; to see firsthand what sells; and to gain insights into running a small business.

About 10-15 hours per week to start, including some weekends. Monk’s Trunk is based in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. Proximity to the neighborhood and flexible hours are a major plus.

Interested candidates should email a resume and cover letter to Carrie McLaren, monkstrunk at No phone calls, please.
