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.
