A few things to know BEFORE APPLYING:
-- The Handmade Showroom is a contemporary gallery-style boutique currently open daily during Pacific Place hours.
-- There is NO fee for participation and artists are NOT required to work in the store. (Though volunteering to help on occasion is completely optional and encouraged)
-- We tend to lean toward more modern/contemporary design, but are always open to seeing work of any style
-- While we have a primary focus on handmade-by-the-artist / designer, we are also open to applications from small-batch manufactured goods with the requirement that the designs are original and copyrighted by the applicant
-- Applications are evaluated based on design originality, quality, professionalism, retail price point, category availability, and overall fit in our collection
-- Participation is by invitation only
-- Applications not accepted will be kept on file for future consideration when category space permits
-- All new work is sold on a consignment agreement contract between The Handmade Showroom LLC and the Artist with payments distributed by the 5th of each month
-- Consignment split is 50/50 split based on the retail price before sales tax

NOTE: 80% of our artists work with us on consignment. However, if you are ONLY open to working with us on a wholesale purchase basis, please fill out the application with a note with that information and forward your wholesale line sheets, price sheet, and terms to hello@thehandmadeshowroom.com
