This year, Costume College is offering an opportunity for our members who own or operate business too small to have a presence in the Costume College Marketplace for one reason or another, to sell their wares legally to Costume College members. (It is not within our contract with the Warner Center Marriott to allow selling in the hotel “bedrooms”). On Sunday, July 28, 2019 from 5:30pm until 7:30 pm in Hidden Hills, Costume College 2019 will hold a “Trunk Show”. Merchants will have 30 minutes to set up and 1 hour to break down after the event.
The Costume College 2019 Trunk Show is open to the general public, so feel free to spread the word to your friends and customers whether they are attending Costume College or not.
Join your fellow Costume College members who are also small business owners as they display their wares for your perusal on Sunday evening after all Costume College classes have finished during the first Costume College Trunk Show. Hidden Hills will open to Costume College members from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm to be able to shop a wide variety of bangles, baubles and such presented for sale by your fellow members.
Often our members select to enjoy Costume College as attendees and instructors rather as vendors since that is their “day or weekend job”. In addition, many of our members travel a great distance to attend Costume College and with current airline regulations are unable to bring enough products to sell at a full weekend marketplace. On the other hand, our attendees wish to have the opportunity to view these members’ goods along with supporting their ventures by purchasing items. As it is against Marriot Hotel policy to conduct sales in hotel “bedrooms”, we are hoping that this new endeavor will make it a win win scenario for all of our members. I mean really, who doesn’t want another opportunity to shop?
