Kazuri Bead Trunk Shows Are On The Road!

Kazuri, Swahili for “Small and Beautiful”, produces a wide variety of high quality, handmade ceramic beads that shine with a kaleidoscope of African colors and Kenyan art. Kazuri had humble beginnings and in the past 30 plus years has grown to employ over 350 women who support up to 20 members of their extended families. Kazuri beads are a handmade, Fair Trade, socially responsible product that has made a profound difference in the lives of these Kenyan women.

Our trunk shows are a great way to offer a large selection of Kazuri beads in your store without the risk of a large investment. If your shop is in Ohio or Michigan, you can take advantage of this no risk opportunity.

Small and Beautiful Beads offers two ways to share Kazuri Beads with your customers:

  1. TRUNK SHOWS BY MAIL (Requires credit card authorization)
    • Promote the trunk show 4-6 weeks ahead of time
    • Do the trunk show (Keep the beads up to 30 days)
      ***Return beads not sold or purchased by your store within 1 week of the completed trunk show. If no returns are received, we will charge your credit card as follows:

      * 50% off retail if you keep/sell $1000.00 or more (net $500.00)

      * 30% off retail if you keep/sell $250.00 or more (net $175.00)

      Your Trunk Show Box will come with Kazuri Beads (bagged by retail price), an inventory sheet, marketing materials including pamphlets and copies of the Kazuri story to share with your customers, and a few samples of finished jewelry samples to serve as inspiration for projects or samples for a class to be taught during the trunk show. (samples to be returned or purchased)

      Small and Beautiful Beads will pay to ship the trunk show to your store and the host shop will be responsible for return shipping. (I prefer flat rate shipping with delivery confirmation through USPS, but you can choose an alternative shipping method as long as there is a tracking number.)

      Ordering Is Easy!

  2. Small and Beautiful Beads can come to you.

    If your shop is in Ohio or Michigan, we can bring one of the largest Kazuri bead inventories available in the United States.

    On site trunk shows
    have the advantage of having one of the largest Kazuri Bead inventories available in the United States. In addition, we bring over 200 samples of finished jewelry pieces that serve as inspiration for your customers. We process all sales and provide all packaging and marketing materials. We pay our own travel and lodging expenses and since we manage the trunk show, the host shop doesn’t have any added expense for extra staff. Your Authorized Kazuri Bead Dealer is an expert and is happy to share that knowledge with your customers. On site trunk show hosts earn 20% commission from gross sales (minus sales Tax) and can purchase Kazuri beads for 50% off retail.
