Host a Trunk Show
The Tybee Tourist collaborates with groups and businesses locally and across the US to provide trunk shows with unique, one-of-a-kind items, made by local artists and artisans.
At each of our trunk shows, we ensure that those attending have an outstanding selection of jewelry, from boho to pearls, so they can shop for that unique piece, for themselves, a friend, or a loved-one.
We work with the group or business hosting the trunk show, ensuring that the selection of jewelry that we send is tailored to the needs of their customers in order to maximize sucess of the trunk show.
We are happy to bring our show to you, within a 100-mile geographic area. If it is more than 100 miles away, we mail you the items, with a 10% downpayment, for you to set up and sell in your business, show, or display. Locally, we can create pop-ups (inside or outside), or set up in the corner of your shop or showplace. All items displayed will be chosen especially for your clientele. When the shopping is over and your trunk show is complete, you simply pack up the unsold items, do a little simple math figure our percentage, and mail it all back to us.
What's The Process?
Local Trunk Shows (within 100 mile radius)
You notify us of the date you would like to have your trunk show and how long you would like to have it run. This can be done with the form found here.
We verify the dates, get a 10% downpayment, and begin to assist you in advertising your event. We work with you to make sure invitations go out, newspapers are notified, and social media is kept up to date.
On the day that the trunk show begins, our representative or small team, depending on the size of the trunk show, will arrive early at your home, office, or otherwise predetermined destination, with all materials needed to set up a beautiful display. Our team will set up the display before the event and clean up our space after the event. We can display inside a building, or with prior notification, can literally pop up a tent for our display.
We can even keep track of sales, if needed, as long as we are notified prior to the event, Otherwise, we assist you. When the evening is complete, we sit down with you, total all sales and determine the amount to be paid so all fees can be paid. If we keep track of the sales, we provide you with the total sales and percentage that you will receive. All fees must be received within 5 working days of the end of the trunk show, or a 5% fee will be assessed weekly, until it is paid in full. Most who sponsor a trunk show choose to pay by credit card that night or soon after. Returned checks will be assessed a $45 returned check fee.
Prior to your event, depending on the timeline, we help you advertise the events. We often help with the flyers, photos, information and any press releases that you might need. We will offer suggestions for successful marketing and advertising at your request. We make sure we have your written approval prior to releasing any information.
