Maybe LUSH?  
So I had my interview with LUSH store manager Jennifer today.
Yes! Already!
It was crazy. I sent her an impulsive e-mail late Friday night, and I had a reply at midnight asking me to call and set up an interview. I called Jennifer back Saturday evening and said sure and how shall I interview please ma'am? She said drop by my garage Sunday night and we'll have a chat.

So I did. At 5:30 I went to the garage of her house (she lives right by Kero, funny enough; if I'd thought ahead and brought clothes with me I could have crashed at her place) and had an interview with Jennifer and another girl. I did pretty well - I'm pretty sure Jennifer was impressed w/ my LUSH product knowledge and my immediate "Well, let's add on to that sale" mentality thanks to three years at Bath & Body Works. But the other girl had so much more retail experience than me.
I might have a chance though. Part of me really wants to get the keyholder job at LUSH (I can't do Manager in Training as I initially hoped because I can't work full-time until February, and they really need someone now) and part of me just wants to stay at Bath & Body Works where I am cozy. Well, I guess I can try this LUSH thing and if it quickly becomes obvious that I can't give them the time they need then that will decide things, won't it? (If they hire me. Perhaps they won't.)
Jennifer did hint that LUSH may open a Oakridge store if Valley Fair does well...hmmm. Hmmm hmmm hmmm.

Crazy huge segment at BBW today. $2,500 in two hours. I can't believe I managed. Let's all give thanks to Jamie and Steffie for that.

Is LUSH a Canadian brand? I think I saw one in Vancouver.

They originally came from England and have shops around the world, but the manufacturing for North America is all up in Vancouver. The closest ones to here are in San Francisco and Carmel.
