Design and Merchandising Shop


d&mShop is a retail laboratory run by the Design & Merchandising students within the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design at Drexel University. It offers students the opportunity to learn how to operate a business enterprise using a hands-on method, while promoting the work and products of Drexel University faculty, students, alumni, staff and local artists.

Products for Sale

The products offered for sale are based on submissions from artists that include original designs for items such as jewelry and accessories, apparel, gifts, stationary, handbags, scarves, and home goods. Products assortments for the retail store and online store vary and are specialized and designed for specific events/dates. These products are often one of a kind or produced in small quantities and are only offered for a limited time. This is your opportunity to support the innovative products and designs of local artists.
