Today we’d like to introduce you to Kerry Swanson.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
With a degree in design and a love for the discarded items of the world, I opened Rewind to share my vision. I love the idea of finding new homes for items rather than seeing everything end up in a landfill. The idea of upcycled or found items offered at great discounts appeals to me. I have been in business for over ten years and the business continues to grow. It is a lot of fun and I am grateful to have such loyal customers including the consigners who bring in all of their wonderful treasures for me to sell.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Until this year, the road has been pretty smooth. I’m blessed. This year has been challenging but I am hanging in there.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Rewind – what should we know?
I resell items for customers(consignment) and give them 50% of the proceeds. The majority of our items are women’s clothing. We specialize in funky better brands such as Free People, Sundance, Rag and Bone etc…We carry jewelry and up-cycled interesting home accents. Inventory changes very quickly and that is what makes it fun. I think what sets me apart from other consignment shops is that the shop is in Golden which is a small friendly town and I have gotten to know many of my customers so it feels more personal. The shop is in a great historic space too. I am lucky I found that great building and I am lucky I opened in Golden where I have had such great support.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Being selective in what items come into the shop. Keeping the shop on-trend and curating it in an interesting way to keep it fresh.
