Card and Gift Ideas at The Handmade Showroom


WHO WE REPRESENT

The Handmade Showroom currently accepts applications from artists who live and work in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States for possible representation in our storefront at Seattle's premier shopping destination, Pacific Place in the heart of Downtown Seattle. 

As of the beginning of 2019, we have begun to consider a very limited number of small-batch, independent lines based outside of the Pacific NW that have little to no representation in the Seattle, WA area.

While we will still have a majority number of Pacific NW-based artists, this expanded scope will allow us to introduce new artists to the Seattle market and further our overall mission to elevate and showcase the best in Handmade from the Pacific NW, United States, and abroad!

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to elevate the perception of Handmade in the marketplace by showcasing works of original design from artists and designers who create with the highest standards of quality.

If that describes your business, we’d love to see what you make!

Gifts for Pet Lovers at The Handmade Showroom

 

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE APPLYING

  • The Handmade Showroom is a contemporary gift boutique open daily at Pacific Place Shopping Center in Downtown Seattle.

  • We tend to lean toward products that are modern/contemporary in design, but are always open to seeing work of any style.

  • There are NO rental fees, membership dues, or any other financial requirement to participate.

  • Artists do NOT need to be present, and volunteering to help during our events is completely optional.

  • While we have a primary focus on handmade-by-the-artist / designer, we are also open to applications from small-batch USA manufactured goods with the requirement that all designs are original and copyrighted by the applicant.

  • Submissions are curated based on design originality, overall quality, brand professionalism, retail price point, category availability, and overall fit in our collection.

  • All applications are thoroughly reviewed and carefully considered for participation.

  • Due to the high number of submissions we receive, we can only contact artists who are the best fit for our collection at any given time.

  • Collections that are not accepted immediately are kept on file for future consideration unless notified otherwise. (In other words, if we don't contact you right away, consider that a good thing!)

  • Note for 2D artists: Our available wall space is currently *very* limited with a wait list for consideration for gallery shows. If you have a gift line for us to consider, please be sure to include that information in your application.

  • We regularly evaluate all of our product offerings based on customer feedback and regularly rotate artists through in order to keep our product offering fresh each season.

  • All work is sold to the public on a consignment agreement contract signed between The Handmade Showroom LLC and the Artist. Consignment share is 50/50 of the retail price before sales tax.

  • We are working toward more wholesale purchasing with a very a limited budget every season for select lines. If you do not normally work on consignment but would like to be considered for participation, please fill out the application and forward your wholesale line sheet and terms to us at vendors@thehandmadeshowroom.com.
