Calling all Designers

Have merchandise to sell?
Join us for our first annual Designer Sample Sale


Participating designers need to be a member of The Design Center ($25.00/yr)
Advantages to being a member:
1. Can participate in all designer events.
2. Can use the designer fabric & sample library that is currently being assembled.
3. Can use the space to meet with clients.
4. Can be listed on the Design Center website.
5. Can use the showroom at any time (24/7) with key fob.
6. Can use the space to host events such as seminars etc.

Any designer wishing to sell needs to sign up for a 2 hour shift during the sale. Can do more if they want. This is a great opportunity for face-to-face with the public.

We would like each designer to bring a table if they can as we are short on tables.

Each designer is encouraged to bring their advertising materials. If you don't bring your own table then you will be limited to cards in a holder. If you bring your own table you can do whatever you want.

We will accept cash or local checks only - no credit cards.

Items will be tagged with designer name & price.

We will keep a sales sheet during the sale with all sales being listed. Checks will need to be made out to the designer making the sale as the Design Center is not set up to take checks but all payments will be to one location. All checks & cash will be held until final tally has been made. Designer keeps ALL the proceeds.

In future events, we might have a charity involved but did not plan for that this year.

We have a lot of marketing materials that we will be getting out to the community at the first of the month.
