Become a Member Artist
The Eclectic Chic Boutique is more than consignment, we work together with each of our member artists to give them an opportunity hone their craft while we operate the business and market the products. We build a relationship with each artist and help them learn best how to present their work and create strategies to help them effectively capitalize on their creations.
Sales & Event Opportunities
We give artists fair commissions from online sales on the website and options for participating events either we host or take part in.
We provide artists with a platform to conduct private classes and parties based around their craft. Artists are given options to host at locations we have affiliations with, at their own home, or at the home of the participant.
Online and Print Promotion
While still in development, each artist will be given a "Business Kit" which will include business cards, fliers, and other print materials to help the artist be able to promote their products on the website. In the secret Facebook group artists will have access to social media images that can be downloaded and be reposted for promotional purposes.
We work with artists one-to-one, connecting them to resources, and connecting to other artists for collaborations. Our goal is to help our artists focus on the products they make best and improve on existing products.
All member artists are invited to join our secret Facebook group, where we discuss product development, retail timelines, and are given updates on website and event developments. Its also a great opportunity with artists to connect with each other.
Each artist will have a profile on the website, which includes a headshot, a artist bio, and link to their products in the online store.
HOW IT WORKS
Artists who are interested in becoming a member artist must submit a Member Artist Inquiry. We are open to all forms of art but are currently interested in the following:
Q: Are there any membership fees?
A: There are no membership fees to be a member artist of The Eclectic Chic Boutique. We only require a commission for sales on the website and at craft shows
Q: Does The Eclectic Chic Boutique hold my inventory? Who ships the products?
A: It depends on the nature of the craft. For some artists we hold inventory until sold. For other artists whose crafts are made on-demand, the artist is responsible for creating, packing, and shipping the product once an order is placed.
Q: Are there any special requirements to be a member artist?
A: We are currently only accepting artists in New Jersey, mainly North Jersey and the Essex County areas.
