Design & 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, and staff.
Products for Sale
Each term, faculty, students, alumni and staff submit product for sale at the d&mShop. The products sold differ per academic term based on submissions from the Drexel community, but include 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 the Drexel University community.

The Shop solicits for product throughout the year. Product offerings, price points and availability may vary by sale event. In order for product to be accepted into the shop for sale, it must be well made, priced competitively and be crafted or designed by Drexel student, faculty, alumni, or staff.
