WE'RE LOOKING FOR
• Interesting, quality work — We're looking for items that are not mass produced, we want quality independent work.
• Good photography — We find with e-commerce that images are everything. The better the images, the better the item will sell as these will be used for promotion and other marketing materials.
• New Items — We're always on the lookout for new products, you may have a cool lamp or chair that you want to sell. Get in touch we might want it! Note: please look at our store before you apply so you can get a feel of what we sell already. Also look at our best sellers, they'll give you a clue about what our customers love.
• Knowledge and respect of copyright — We ask all our vendors who join that their work has been created by themselves and is not a copy of similar creation of another artists work, name, brand, design or product. Any person who conflicts with this will be removed from the store immediately.
If you think your work fits the bill then apply HERE.
