Tuesday = Photoshoot Day

Shop Velouria

Here’s a behind the scenes look at what we do every Tuesday morning as our first step to getting our clothing up in our webshop!

We meet up early to gather our sizes, rearrange the shop furniture, set up lights, put on makeup, take photos of each other, and then put clothing and furniture back in place before shop opening procedures. Next it’s time to import photos, sort through them, edit and rename them, and upload them to our web shop. We then write correct and descriptive information about garment features and fit, fabric content and care, and measurements.

What information is most important to you when purchasing clothing online? Images? Fit? Measurements?

Are you our next Velouria Customer Associate?

At Velouria, we offer women a thoughtful selection of U.S. and Canadian-made clothing, jewelry and gifts.  We are as in awe of our artists and designers as we are of our inspiring customers; therefore, we seek to provide a space where connection and community are nurtured through quality goods, informative customer service, and a commitment to giving back.  Our biggest joy is creating moments of surprise and delight.

We are looking for two new customer service associates to join our team for 22-28 hours/week each. This will include at least one weekend shift and at least one evening shift (ends at 7:30 PM).
