You could call this group: the dream team, the happy team, the creative team, the friendly team.  And you would be right! Not only are these ladies a friendly bunch, there is a lot of talent in this group.  This photo was taken at a recent staff craft night at Scrap & Bean.  In just a few hours there was a collective stack of projects!  A flip-fold album, scrapbook pages, scenic cards, graduation cards, and quilling projects! Be sure to look around the store for the new samples on display.  Also check out our wall of upcoming classes, where the staff of Scrap & Bean share their love of crafting with you.

If you love shopping with us, you may also love working with us.

We are a team of avid crafters who love sharing our passion with every crafter that walks through our door.  We get to be amongst beautiful scrapbooking supplies, seeing the newest art supplies as they arrive, and imagining how we can use them in our next project.    But don’t let that image fool you.  Every one of us is also working hard,  we are lifting boxes (of new and exciting products), restocking shelves with colourful paints and glitters, picking orders for our webstore shoppers, doing paperwork, making signs, counting inventory, washing classroom tables, we even keep our bathroom sparkling clean.   There is a lot of work going on to keep this large scrapbook store open seven days a week.

  As Scrap & Bean is growing, we have room for yet another avid crafter to join our team.  A good team includes individuals with differing skills which complement each other.  So the perfect candidate for this new position would be a person that brings new experience to add to our existing team.  We realize that there are many people that are willing to learn, and that is a valuable trait for sure!  Imagine if we kept training people to do exactly what we already do?

This position will be responsible for many aspects of inventory.  Such as merchandising, counting, data-entry of counted information, re-stocking, and more.
