About Gift Time:
The IBRC is looking to partner with Butte-area creatives who make artisan goods such as paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, small sculpture, functional pottery, jewelry, textiles, soaps and all other handmade gifts imaginable. In addition to these artisan goods, Gift Time also will feature a selection of gift certificates for local services such as workshop instruction, massage appointments, salon treatments, photography sessions, custom welding, small engine repair, yard work, event planning, cake decorating, sign painting, fine art framing and more.
Gift Time will include the artisan goods and services sale which will open its doors Friday, December 4th, 5PM during the 25th Annual Christmas Stroll and the shop will keep regular business hours each day for two weeks, offering holiday shoppers custom gift wrapping services upon purchase.
On the night of Friday, December 18th, we will be closing the event with a silent auction for the sale of special items, at a 50/50 split with all artists. This will be a fun night of food, live music and art. If preferred, artists are welcome to submit works specifically for the Silent Auction exhibition and will receive a free event ticket (live music, dinner, drinks & dessert!).
While Gift Time is a fundraiser to support resource expansion for the community offered through our center, this event is also meant to generate cash sales for all participating creatives.
The IBRC has been proudly built by volunteer hands and we are grateful for all the support that continues to build this space. To celebrate our relationship with our community's creatives, all proceeds from Gift Time will be split 50/50 between participating artists and the Imagine Butte Resource Center. We will not ask you to donate your work. You work hard and we want to work with you. We hope that you will join us in an effort to improve the IBRC as a community resource for everyone, including you.
To support this project, please use this application to get started. After reviewing your application, Abby or Olivia will follow up with you regarding the consignment agreement for your holiday inventory. We look forward to showcasing your creative work and professional expertise while supporting the IBRC's ongoing efforts to increase opportunities for all our community's thinkers, makers and doers.
