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. Just fill out the form below and we will contact you.
