If you own a store front Art Glass Shop who sells retail art glass and supplies to the public, joining R.A.G.S. is best thing you can do for your customers and your business. Here are just a few benefits:
Keeping in Touch with our Peers
Our members communicate by email on a frequent basis in a positive, non-competitive manner. R.A.G.S. member stores have an advantage over others - communication! Through the use of the R.A.G.S. e-mail list and Bulletin Board Forum, member stores have the latest news and up to date information in the world of art glass. We share our problems and successes so that we can both give and receive advice. It doesn't matter if you’ve been in business for 20 years; there are things you can learn to help your business prosper. Our members range from “just opened” to over 30 years in business.
We exchange knowledge on all phases of operation including advertising, new products, safety and teaching classes. Ideas on class structure, syllabus design and marketing are all shared freely in a member program we call Workshop Wonders. We share ideas and techniques on Stained Glass, Fused Glass, Mosaics, Sandblasting and Lampworking. You simply may not have time to constantly look for fresh ideas to keep your business growing and prosperous, but membership in RAGS will provide what you need.
Retailers Helping Retailers
It’s not just our motto, it’s what we do. Your R.A.G.S. membership will quickly become your best resource for fresh ideas, new friends and great inspiration.
