PICTURES: -Take pictures of your work for submission! If you do not
already have a collection viewable online somewhere that you can send us
a link to, please take some close-up pictures that clearly illustrate
the type of item, range present in your line, and upload them onto one
of many free photo sites out there like Flickr. We are not looking for
one or two items, we are looking for a variety of items that completely
explore a theme and tell a story. We definitely lean toward accepting
work that is edgy, unusual and fashion forward, utilizing either a
clever technique or creatively repurpose interesting materials.
-Have ready some idea of what you want items in your line priced at as a
retail AND what you expect to get as a wholesale cost. Sometimes we
will prefer to consign the work, other times it's better to buy
outright. it just depends on the nature of the work, price-points, ease
of receiving new work and artist location. We definitely lean towards
acceptance of work that is affordable and for this reason we do not
carry gold, diamonds, or anything with excessive intrinsic value. We do
not negotiate prices, splits or commission until the work is accepted
and deemed appropriate for the store.
COMPANY DETAILS: -Please
include in your e-mailed submission who you are, where you are from, the
kind of work you make and what sort of unique process or materials you
feature. Please include policy information, like shipping or drop-off
services, lead-times for orders, opening & reorder minimums, special
ordering restrictions, returns & repair policies, exchanges &
willingness to do swaps for unsold merchandise, where else your work is
sold, and how you learned about Redux.
ACCEPTANCE: -Please keep in
mind we are a tiny shop, packed with items. We do our best to rotate
consignors in an appropriate manner, and move merchandise displays as
frequently as possible for maximum exposure and visibility. Also, we
cannot accommodate every artist inquiry, but do keep a wait-list for
consideration, and check it when we do rotations every month or two.
Your patience is essential, it might take awhile before we can make room
for a new vendor or consignor.
