WearWoof wants In Store Vendors

Hi, I am the Retail Coordinator at WearWoof, a nonprofit animal welfare organization in the North Hills. We are a women’s secondhand clothing store that is partnered with 32 local animal shelters and rescues. We raise money for our partners by selling new and gently used clothing, accessories, and shoes that are donated by local women and corporate sponsors, such as InStyle magazine.

I would like to bring in a local artisan about once a month to complement our sales and drive traffic to the shop. I am looking for artists that make women’s jewelry or accessories. Any pet or animal related products would be considered as well, and a connection with any of our shelter or rescue partners is a huge plus.

In lieu of a vending fee, we ask that you make a tax-deductible monetary donation (based on the day’s sales) or a product donation to be sold in the shop. A 6-foot table and chairs can be provided, as needed.

Please email Shannon at wearwoofinc@gmail.com if you’re interested in working together.

You can learn more about WearWoof at www.wearwoof.org. Thanks!

~Holiday Arcade 11/6/2014~

 

Providence Point, Pittsburgh’s preeminent senior living community, invites you to participate in its Holiday Arcade to be held on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 2:30-6:30 PM to benefit its Employee Appreciation Fund. 

 

For a $50 fee, artisans and vendors will have an opportunity to sell their goods and promote their business.  With more than 750 residents, staff and visitors on-site this is a great way to connect to our vibrant community and make some money.  We also ask vendors to provide an item, valued at a minimum of $10.00, as part of a basket raffle.  Tickets for the basket raffle will be sold on-site during the event.

 

There is a limit on the number of vendors, so participation is on a first come, first serve basis.  Attached you will find the vendor application with more details (in two different formats).  Feel free to call Erin Engel with any questions at (412) 489-3260 or eengel@baptisthomes.org.

 

We hope to see you there!

 

Sincerely,

Boutique 208, in downtown Pittsburgh, right across from Heinz Hall, offers artists the opportunity to work with other artists to allow each of them to have the benefits of having their own store, while sharing the cost of overhead and helping to cover the hours and other tasks needed .

Take a look at our Facebook page to see photos of the boutique: https://www.facebook.com/Boutique208

As an artist member, you get all the benefits of owning your own store, while retaining a higher percentage of your profits than you would if you were doing it alone, not to mention the time savings you will experience by working together with other members to cover the store hours.

We feel that artists gain the most benefits by joining as a member, but we also offer the option to sell on consignment (60% to artist/40% to boutique) to select artists based on our product needs.

If you’re interested in becoming a member, or would like more information about consignment opportunities, please visit our blog for more info at http://boutique208.blogspot.com/2013/01/curious-about-how-to-become-part-of.html

The Urban Stitches Foundation Needs a Crafty Volunteer!

Are you an enthusiastic, outgoing and creative college student? If so, our students need YOU!

We are looking for one or more sewing enthusiasts to volunteer with our after school students no more than 2 1/2 hours every other Thursday beginning in November at the YWCA Homewood-Brushton. Duties include helping students with their sewing projects and basically being there to lend a hand if they get stuck and helping them nurture their newfound joy of sewing.

The benefits of working with teens are truly worthwhile and volunteering looks good on any resume (smile). If you are interested, please call (412) 726-4109 or e-mail me for more information. If you know of someone who might be a good fit, please feel free to spread the word.  Volunteers will be given a small stipend to assist with transportation costs.
