You Should get to Know.
Each month we will be featuring a staff member for you to get to know! Our staff thinks of our consigners and shoppers as an extension of the Duck Worth Wearing family and we want to connect! This month you should get to know our very own Naomi Bratsch-Prince.
Position: Sales Associate at Duck Worth Wearing.
Past: Naomi has her roots in Ames, Iowa where she still currently lives as the youngest of three children.
Present: Naomi enjoys her hometown of Ames as she lives with her parents Ray & Dawn, and older brothers Eli & Josh. Her brother Eli is a Senior at Ames High School, while Josh attends Iowa State University. Naomi participates in marching band, choir, cross country, key club (a volunteer organization) and in the Ames High Fashion Show.
Future: Participating in the Ames High Fashion show is an outlet for Naomi’s passion for refurbishing old clothing into new and inventive wears. She plans to keep up with that hobby and hang out with friends and family.
Every year when the holidays roll around I can’t help but think of how grateful we are for our customers, consigners, and staff. We couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of everyone who makes this store work. We can’t wait to show our thanks with great holiday sales.
Thank you for your business, and as always for shopping local!
