You may not know this about me, but I am a HUGE music fan, and I’ve been lucky enough to work part time as a merch girl. What exactly do I do? I sell merchandise for bands, and let me tell you, I LOVE IT!
Several years ago I was asked by a friend if I’d be interested in helping to sell merchandise for Monster Jam, and that was my first foray into the world of merch. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to meet hundreds of musicians and bands, sell thousands of dollars in merchandise and have a great time doing it!
Some of the artists/shows I’ve worked with:
- Willie Nelson
- Honeymoon Suite
- The Trews
- Killer Dwarfs
- Monster Jam
- Disney On Ice
- Enrique Iglesias
- Collective Soul
- Jack Richardson London Music Awards
- The Piano Guys
- The Wiggles
- And many more!!!
This part time gig gets me out of the house a few times a month, gives me some extra spending money, and I get to listen and sometimes meet fabulous artists who are known worldwide. Quite the side gig wouldn’t you agree?
Here are a few pics of merch booths and some of the artists I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
Do you have an interesting part-time gig? Tell me about it in the comments below! I’d love to hear your story 🙂
