Meet The Team: Vinal Jain Bollywood Buff and Merchandising Wiz
New girl on the block Vinal Jain joined the PropShop24 family only 6 months ago. She’s part of the merchandising team and makes sure all the orders and consignments that come her way are taken care off. She’s also a big Bollywood buff and can watch a good movie at a drop of a hat, especially Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Let’s find out a bit more about her!
Team PropShop24: What exactly do you do at PropShop24 and what do you enjoy the most about this job role?
Vinal: I have been with PropShop24 for about 6 months, it has been an amazing learning experience so far. My prime responsibility is to handle consignments. My colleagues are some of the best people to work with.
TPS24: What has been the most priceless gift anyone has given you?
Vinal:Nothing that I can think of from the top of my mind, because I am not a gifts person. However, I vividly remember being gifted a watch by my aunt (dad’s sister) which was so pretty, that I wore it almost everyday.
TPS24: Tell us one fun memory about working at PropShop24?
Vinal: Can’t chose one specifically, but everyday is fun around my colleague Vidhika, we both work in the merchandising department. She is just naturally funny, like she could be a stand up comedian, even she says so. Even when she is stressed she laughs, cracks jokes and makes others laugh too, and I absolutely adore that about her.
TPS24: What is your all-time favourite movie, that you can watch over and over again?
Vinal: I am Bollywood buff and my favourite movie has to be Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, it’s beautiful and intense at the same time. Plus, Ranbir and Deepika have just the right chemistry in this movie.

TPS24: If you have an unlimited budget, how would you spend an ideal weekend?
Vinal: I would definitely take a getaway to some place away from the concrete jungle – I’d choose Coorg and stay at Evolve Back Resort. If not travelling then I’d shop till I drop. One thing that I will definitely buy, would be a designer handbag and wallet with my unlimited budget!
TPS24: Name a role model whose life you’d like to trade with for a day?
Vinal: As cliche as it may sound, it has to be my mom, the way she handles the house and everything else is just impeccable. Wish I could be half as good as she is!
TPS24: What are some of your favourite PropShop24 products that you’d like to gift?
Vinal: I have two go-to gifts – notebooks and jewellery. I’d love to gift this notebook, as it colourful and perfect for all those who need to take down notes, definitely comes in handy. In fact, I’d gift this notebook to my cousin as she has just started an internship.
You can never go wrong with jewellery and I like this chunky bracelet, as it has tons of personallity. I’d like to gift this to myself as it is perfect for a beach vacay. Plus, considering I barely wear jewellery, it’s high time I get some that I could really use!
TPS24: If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be and why?
Vinal: Wish I could take more vacations and travel solo. That’s one thing I will never be allowed to do, but I wish was.
TPS24: What is your favourite song to listen to on your commute to work and why?
Vinal: I listen to all things Bollywood and squeeze in some English songs too. Right now I’ve been listening to the song Lamberghini by The Doorbeen Feat Ragini. I love the beats of the song, and it’s that one Punjabi song thats on almost every Indian’s playlist right now!
TPS24: If you had to pick one spot for a vacation, where would it be and why?
Vinal: If it had to pick from places I’ve been to, it would be Switzerland. If not, then visiting London when the Christmas lights are up, has been on my bucket list for quite a while now.
Considering Vinal has only been with us for 6 months, it was great getting to know her better through this ‘Meet The Team’ blog. If you’d like to know more about our team, keep checking back to the blog as we’re constantly uploading posts on opinions and obsessions.
