We are always looking
for new consignors, but we do limit the number of craftspersons in each category. Most
of our consignors are from the Hudson Valley, but
we will consider the work of people outside the area. We are a juried shop, and
request actual samples of products, as we cannot determine quality and workmanship from photos. Items brought to the store for jurying must be labeled with the craftsman’s name, a description of
the item and materials used and the selling price, which is determined by the consignor.
Our consignors pay a yearly contract fee and a commission on items sold. All
work sold in the store MUST be handmade by the consignor. Because our store is
located in a mall, we are open seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day and Easter. We participate in mall activities and have developed a loyal following of repeat customers.
Consignors are notified
by email mid-month of sales since the beginning of the month. At the end of the
month, checks with a listing of items sold are sent out to consignors. If a consignor
has a large sale or if multiple items are sold, we notify the consignor so that replacements can be brought in. If a consignor is willing to do special orders, we will facilitate that, often by having the craftsperson
speak directly with the customer to eliminate misunderstandings regarding color, size, price, etc.
We are looking
for products in the following areas: Fabric (quilts, placemats, etc.); leather
goods; food/candy; decorative painting; candles; baskets.
If you are interested,
please contact us through this website or by visiting the store. We will be happy
to provide you with an informational packet.
