Our Marketplace is a cooperative venture of numerous creative teachers who have created many music materials individually, but work together cooperatively on the Music Educators Marketplace to let the world know about them. We hope you will find this a useful site for your task of adding to the musical beauty in the world.

We will come to you via our Mem Store-in-a-box!

* Examine and purchase creative new teaching enrichment materials

* Talk shop

* No shipping cost to purchase box items

* Win attendance prizes

Here's how it works:

We will ship samples of at least thirty of our creative products for your organization to display and demonstrate at a meeting or party. The box will include order forms, catalogs, and a complimentary attendance prize or two.

You designate a member to be your contact person and storekeeper. That person will display the merchandise, collect and mail the order forms and payments, and return any unsold merchandise after the show.

Products can be purchased on the spot, first come, first served (and thus with no shipping cost to the purchaser). Duplicate products can be ordered by completion of an order form, just as for any catalog order.

Following the event, any unsold items are to be returned promptly by the sponsoring organization via UPS Ground. We regret that a rebate originally offered to sponsoring groups for volume sales has had to be suspended due to recent large increases in our shipping costs for the outbound boxes. However this does not change the fact that you will receive your Store-in-a-Box for your event at no expense to you. Your only financial responsibility is to return unsold items in good condition after the event.
