Gather Phx is all about celebrating the creativity flowing from the desert and beyond. We value sustainability, ethical, and inclusive artists, designers, herbalists, social do-gooders, and makers creating in Arizona and celebrate them in community at The Churchill. We believe in the power of mindful retail and the magic that exists in sharing our gifts with one another to heal, to celebrate, to honor, and to reclaim.
If you're a local creative interested in stocking your magic in our shop, keep reading to see if there is alignment; then, apply to be a vendor.
After filling out the application, we request two samples of each intended inventory to test before we onboard a new brand. Samples will not be returned to the brand, regardless of whether or not the brand is taken on as a vendor. Why is a reasonable question -- and it's because we need to test out all of your products before we put them on our shelves and on our website for you. We have anchored deeply into our values and want to ensure the integrity of the products we share with customers is the absolute best of what's is out there. Because of this, our team tests everything.
If you have questions, please reach out. We love to provide feedback on how incredible brands can improve and align with us so we can grow together.
If you're new to selling your work here are some helpful tips
We pay out 40% of the sale to the artist. This accounts for the expenses for the space and resources to sell your inventory. Please consider your prices given our vendor relations. Simply pricing structure is best - keep it clear + simple for the customer.
Keep us stocked and stay invested in what is selling. Please bring no less than 5, but we'd prefer 10 items or more.
Remember your inventory list each time you restock us. If something won't work in our shop we will simply cross it off your inventory list when you come.
