Tom Banwell Designs, Inc is looking for long-term relationships with established craft show/art fair vendors who would benefit by adding our products to their line.
Our fashion masks sell very well in a retail craft show environment where there are mirrors and the opportunity for customers to try on the individual masks. For the right craft vendors our masks can provide an excellent source of income.
We offer our masks to select craft show vendors in two different ways.
Our fashion masks, character masks, crowns, cuffs and a few of our steampunk/plague doctor masks are available finished and bagged, ready to sell, for 50% off retail (as listed at tombanwell.etsy.com) for fashion masks, around 38% off for character masks, and around 35% of for plague doctor masks. You can see and order our finished wholesale masks at tombanwell.com/wholesale using the password 2468. Read more details on how to order there.
We offer many of our leather fashion masks as blanks, laser cut and shaped, but not painted, for 65% off of retail. These need to be painted and have the elastic band inserted and tied before they are ready to sell. We recommend airbrushing them using Angelus Brand acrylic leather paint. The masks can also have beads, sparkles, feathers, etc. attached for a more distinctive look.
For craft show vendors who are required to sell only work that they have made themselves, the unpainted masks could be an ideal product because they come as leather blanks to be decorated and customized by the vendor.
Most of our masks have a suggested retail price of $39, which is an excellent price point at street fairs as many potential customers have a couple of twenty dollar bills in their wallets, and those blanks are priced at just $13.65.
Although the photos show the masks painted, the prices are for the unpainted blanks.
