Goderich Makers Mercantile - Retail Consignment Application
The Goderich Makers Mercantile is a tiny shop bursting with big creativity and we invite you to consider joining our space! Opened in 2016, the Mercantile features a curated collection of high-quality handcrafted items and locally-produced food products. We currently represent more than 80 incredibly talented makers in our shop and we are always on the lookout for new makers looking to consign their work. So, if you are a maker who would like to have your handmade products considered for the Mercantile, please take a moment to read through the information below before filling out and submitting the following application form.
Things to consider before you apply:
The focus of the Makers Mercantile is to celebrate and support local makers. Priority is given to makers from Huron County and surrounding regions of southwestern Ontario.

If you make food products they must be produced in a health unit certified kitchen and they must be labelled according to Canadian standards.

The consignment split is 60/40. You will be paid 60% of the retail price of all goods sold in any given month on the 15th of the following month (or the next business day).

Consultations are available on pricing, packaging, sourcing raw materials etc.

Each maker is charged an annual fee of $20 to help offset the cost of marketing, merchandising, participation in local fundraising events, and more. There is no monthly rental fee and you will never be required to volunteer time to work in the shop.

Each maker receives a 11.5% discount off their purchases in the store.

There are a lot of considerations that go into deciding if a maker's work is a good fit for the store. These include: quality of workmanship, uniqueness of design, ease of merchandising, appropriateness and attractiveness of packaging, whether or not we already carry similar products, interest to our customers, among other indefinable criteria. Please don’t take it personally if we decide your product is not a good fit.

Owners Dana, Amy and George split their time between the shop, their families and their side projects. Please be patient while consideration is being made on your application.
