Site Offers Emerging Designers Retail Spaces To Sell Their Designs

Republic Spaces is a project that pairs emerging designers and artists with established retailers for a short-term pop-up spaces.

Zachary Kraemer

With e-commerce sites such as Etsy and Bonanza, it’s becoming easier for undiscovered designers and artists to build a strong brand reputation and sell their goods without having to consult a third party. What many of these small entrepreneurs are lacking, however, is a physical space to showcase their work.

With this exact idea in mind, Angela Wang, founder of Republic Spaces, formed her new and innovative company to make it more convenient (and less costly) for creative’s and inventors to display merchandise in a physical retail setting without having to pay absurd amounts for a space of their own.

The site, which recently made its debut, allows those looking to display their merchandise the option of renting various spaces at daily rates of $200-$4000. The spaces available for rent include window displays to full gallery rooms for larger pieces or series.

Wang explains her vision to PSFK:

I feel that it’s imperative for designers to have a physical space. While e-commerce is important, it’s also equally imperative to have a physical space to showcase merchandise. Republic Spaces successfully combines online and offline for the designers, artists and consumers alike.
