Trunk Show FAQs
What is a Noonday Collection Trunk Show like?
A Trunk Show is a party where you and your friends can shop for jewelry and accessories handmade by Artisans around the world and get styling tips from a Noonday Ambassador. You will discover the stories of the talented Artisans who make our pieces. By shopping, you and your friends will create opportunity in vulnerable communities around the world. Noonday has something for everyone – all styles and budgets – and there is no pressure for guests to purchase anything. Take a peek inside a Trunk Show.
Who can host a Trunk Show?
Anyone can host! You just have to be willing to gather your friends and invite them to make a difference. While many of our Trunk Shows are hosted by women, we also have had Trunk Shows hosted by men – often as a way to make it easy for other men to shop for gifts for their wives, sisters, daughters and friends!
How do I find an Ambassador?
Easy! Just fill out the Host a Trunk Show form and we'll connect you with an Ambassador in your area!
When can I host a Trunk Show?
You can host a Trunk Show on a weekday or a weekend, during the day or in the evening. Trunk Shows are a great reason to gather friends for a play date or a night out. Ask your Ambassador about her availability! There is never a perfect time when everyone can come. Check your calendar ahead of time for other events, choose a date and invite your friends with confidence – you are giving them an opportunity to make a difference!
How far in advance should I plan my Trunk Show?
It is never too early to get something on the books! Your Ambassador will help you set a date. We think at least two or three weeks is enough time to gather friends. We make it easy for you to send out invitations and to remind your guests – ask your Ambassador for more details!
Where can I host a Trunk Show?
You can host a Noonday Trunk Show anywhere, not just in your home! Any space where you can gather friends and give your Ambassador room to set up a beautiful display of Noonday Products could work. We have had Trunk Shows at coffee shops, offices, schools, churches and more. Contact your Ambassador to talk about options in your community.
How much space do I need to host a Trunk Show?
You don't need a big house to host a Trunk Show! Your Ambassador will need a space where she can set up samples – think kitchen counter, dining table or coffee table – and your friends will need a little room to gather. To save space, invite friends to choose their favorite pieces as they walk in the door to wear during the Trunk Show. Take a peek inside a Trunk Show.
How do I prepare for my Trunk Show?
Before your guests arrive, clear a space where your Ambassador can set up her display. Your Ambassador will bring everything else! When it comes to food and drinks, our best advice is to keep it simple. Make a pot of coffee or open a bottle of wine, set out some fruit, cheese or dessert, and make your friends feel welcome.

Will I get to see the entire collection at my Trunk Show?
Trunk Shows are the best way to see our gorgeous collection in person. Your Ambassador will bring her unique selection of Noonday Collection jewelry and accessories. She will also bring our gorgeous Lookbook so you can discover the entire collection! Plus you can always shop online.
What if some of my friends can't make it?
You can always invite your friends to shop online as a part of your Trunk Show! Your Ambassador will give you the details of how this works to make sure you receive credit for any online orders.
Can I host a Trunk Show with a friend?
While you are welcome to get friends or family involved in helping you host a Trunk Show, only one person may earn Hostess Rewards. Contact your Ambassador for more details.
How long will it take for our new Noonday to arrive?
After your guests write down their orders at your Trunk Show, your Ambassador will place the orders through our website. Our Home Office team based in Austin, Texas will pack the orders with love. They will be delivered via USPS within 3 weeks. Want more details? Visit our Shipping & Delivery page.
