Based out of Truro Nova Scotia
My name is Rebecca LaPointe and I am the owner and operator of Beck & Boosh.
I had been an elementary teacher in Alberta, Korea and Nova Scotia for over a decade when I set up a website in May 2013 and started selling jewelry at festivals around the Atlantic provinces to spread the brand. Within a year we were wholesaling handmade pieces as well as curated pieces all across the country. That's when I decided I would leave my teaching career to become an full-time entrepreneur! I then opened up the storefront in Truro, Nova Scotia in November, 2015.
I've always loved fashion, jewelry and accessories and using my creativity to show through in what I am wearing. Just knowing how adding that one special piece can make a difference in my confidence and the way I feel starting my day made me want to offer that feeling to other women. This is why I love working with my team, coming up with new design ideas, and meeting and interacting with all of our amazing customers in the store and through our media every day. I absolutely LOVE my job!
Yoga, biking and Zentangling ( look it up, it's awesome!!) are a few of the things I love to do when I am not at work, and most of all spending time with my 2 young boys and amazing husband.
I'm Mandy Ellis & I am the Wholesale Manager here at Beck & Boosh.
I love getting to chat with our Wholesale Customers, help them find the products that fit their stores. It is so satisfying to pack and ship an order after working with a customer to pick just the right collection of products for their needs.
As Wholesale Manager I am also able to travel to meet new Booshes and welcome them into our loving Beck & Boosh wholesale family.
My title only describes a fraction of the fun I have here at the store.
Customer Service is one of the hats that I wear, I am happy to say that it is ME who you talk to when you are making Customer Service Inquires through email or social media. Working the store for a few mornings a week and chatting with you as your browse keeps things interesting. I never know who I'll meet.
Processing donations to various community initiatives, receiving new products, maintaining inventory and packing up your online purchases are some of my favorite tasks!When I'm not at work I can be found with my husband, our son and a variety of pets! We have 2 dogs, 3 cats and a few horses. For my “me” time I enjoy horseback riding and taking long baths with a bottle of wine and a good book – any genre as long as it's not horror ( I'm too chicken for that!). I was born in Truro but moved around a lot, always coming back to Truro which is where I have been since 2005 exclusively and where I will stay.
