EXCLUSIVE to E17 Designers: Vestry House Museum Shop

Posted by E17 Designers
EXCLUSIVE to E17 Designers!

Vestry House Museum Shop would like to offer an exclusive section in the shop at the front entrance of the Museum, to E17 Designers. They are pretty busy all summer, with tourists and events/parties etc. who use the community room and the very special garden. We want to start this special trial project in June, just in time for the summer season! It is open Wednesday to Sunday 10-5pm. We managed to get 500 people through the door during the March event, so they have a very welcoming audience for what you all do, with visitor’s eager to shop local.

Works will be selected on the basis of commercial potential within the Vestry House Museum:small gift items such as cards, prints, ceramics, glass, wood, jewellery, fashion and textile accessories (bags/purses). We have a large glass cabinet to show smaller items e.g. jewellery (shelving 50cm x 40cm approx.) Larger items would be shown on open shelves/wall mounted (60cm x 30cm approx. of clear acrylic) and a wooden print rack. Some other fittings can also be utilised, but if you are a jeweller, it would be ideal if you have your own small display stands to show off your work. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that we will have sufficient space to show very large items such as furniture/clothing. Therefore everyone can only apply for one ‘space’ as per the above dimensions. I’ll get a special branding/board made up, and do all the usual PR and advertising.

Please make an application by going to Your Events, Vestry House Museum Shop, using the drop down menu, selecting Whole Table £80 (this refers to the booking, for dimensions refer to the notes above!)


Introductory shelf rental of £80 for an 8-week trial: £10 per space per week (£2 a day as open for 5 days a week!). I can split payments in to two orders.

Vestry House Museum will take a 25% commission on all sales, direct to the Museum. (Please bear this in mind when you work out your prices, it is acceptable to add a little on to your retail price for shops).

If you want to either update your images on your page, or email me a couple of new ones, which I can file to show to the buyer, this may help selection.


Trial of 8 weeks, so a second round, if successful, will take place after the first one, and so on. June-July, August-September, October-November etc.


Date line:

Monday 16th May midnight: application deadline

Tuesday 17-21st May: selection week with the VHM, and notification

Monday 23rd May until Sunday 5th: delivery and set up

Week beginning 6th June open.



VHM: will have a full contact list of email and telephone numbers and take care of re-ordering, sales records and making payments. They will have a simple contract and some terms and conditions on delivery (NB they will take a 25% commission on all sales, this goes directly to the Museum) They will do some promotion as part of their usual advertising and social media. I have also asked them to supply a standardised labelling system of some kind.
