As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A basketball player. I wanted to play for the Boston Celtics.
Describe your workday in three words.
Very long. Stressful.
What tools could you not live or work without?
The computer. Also, a good cash register.
What past steps brought you to this position?
I've been at Jaki's since it opened 39 years ago. I had been an accountant before, and then this job became available.
What's the strangest aspect of your job?
The strangest thing that's ever happened to me up here is when (a bunch of) people came in the store, pulled off their clothes in the middle of the isle and started trying on costumes.
What's the best thing about your job?
Meeting the people who shop here. Most of our customers are coming here to shop for costumes or to have a good time, so it's nice getting to help them. We also work with all the local theaters around the area, supplying them with costumes.
What advice do you have for others who would like to sell costumes/party wear?
You have to love the public to be able to do it.
