To look older, I wore high Platform Shoes and Ties wider then my body(style then). It was not uncommon for me as a part timer to out sell the full time salesperson(s). Ilearned more here in One year than I did in all of my years in private and public schoolscombined. Mr. Goldstein called me his "secret weapon". This is the job I first learned visualmerchandising. Burton Shoes always had large walk in windows. So large it took a week to breakOne down, clean, prepare and then assemble the new window displays.
