In December 2016 I found a store called The Arts Market here in Toronto.
It is a craftsy store with lots of handmade items there.
The advertisement said that for $200 a month, you can rent out a space and sell your handmade items.
I applied there and had an interview with the owner of The Arts Market. Unfortunately because it’s so popular I was put on a wait list.
Yesterday I was looking through Kijiji (free classified ads in Canada) for any upcoming craft shows, and I found another store called The Fab Attic which sells vintage items and handmade items.
The rent for the month is $100.
Today I went to The Fab Attic with my jewelry and displays in hand, and I met the owner and I was able to set my jewelry up on the spot, and I paid the $100 for the month.
Has anyone else had experience selling through these kinds of stores?
I’m doing this so that my jewelry has an outlet so that I get more customers.
I’d love to hear from other jewelers and your experiences in these kinds of environments.
