NGY is going to do a new thing, shows for shops! Here’s what you need to know:
We would love to help your shop host special events featuring Nerd Girl Yarns. Perhaps your shop would like to try a new base or spinning fiber, feature a new colorway line, try out some special kits or display some samples; let us know what you are thinking and we can help!
If you are interested in hosting a product launch trunk show or a sales trunk show, please see the policies listed below. We try to schedule out at least six months in advance so please contact us as soon as you think you might be interested in an event.
Product Launch Trunk Shows
Nerd Girl Yarns is happy to provide a trunk show to help launch the yarn and fiber at your shop. Please contact us for more information and availability. We can provide some sample garments and suggest patterns in time for your product launch. Contact us for a list of what is available and how we can help.
Sales Trunk Shows
Nerd Girl Yarns is also happy to help arrange a sales trunk show or other special event for your shop, to bring in a wider variety of yarns or fibers than you typically carry.
If you are a current Nerd Girl Yarns customer, we typically will split the trunk show 50/50. If you aren’t a current Nerd Girl Yarns customer (or haven’t placed a wholesale order in 12 months), we suggest a 70/30 split for the trunk show. We will provide a written list of all goods provided, including the wholesale and our online retail prices, so that you can easily check what has sold and what, if anything, is being returned.
If travel is required for the trunk show, the shop will cover the travel expenses. A $500.00 commitment is required for a trunk show sales event. Please contact us for scheduling and other information. Payment for goods sold is due at the end of the trunk show.
For other events such as yarn or fiber tastings, we would love to work with you to develop a unique and creative way to showcase the variety of colors and yarns and/or fibers. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you to create a wonderful event!
