Request for Artists and Crafts People
Pop Up Shop Opening November 15th at
is seeking artists to participate in our Pop Up Shop for the holidays opening November 15th. We are inviting artists and crafts people who create work using reclaimed, reused, repurposed or natural materials, and are particularly interested in work which reflects our company’s focus on interior design and creating and living a healthy life.
In recent years we have sponsored exhibits entitled ReMade which reflect these ideals. The Pop Up Shop acknowledges this tradition of promoting local artists and the community, providing local sources of creative work to our customers.
We are seeking 3 to 4 committed artists or artisans to display and sell their work in our new retail space in Mashpee Commons Fountain Plaza opening November 15th. Artists should have enough inventory of materials to sell throughout the holiday season, though there is also opportunity to work and create in the space during the Pop Up Shop hours. We will ask all participating artists to spend at least one day during each week at the Pop Up Shop, working alongside our staff to create and sell to customers. These personal appearances will be well promoted and is an opportunity to bring in your audience as well as to benefit from introduction to Green Design Center’s clientele. Prices should be set for a 60/40 split with Green Design Center’s.
We are especially interested in the following types of work:
- Repurposed small furniture, serving implements, bowls, trays, mirrors, lamps, clocks
- Small collages and frames
- Natural and organic baking mixes
- Children’s toys made of natural, non-plastic materials
- Household textiles such as tablecloths, placemats, napkins, made of natural or repurposed materials
- Other textiles including tote bags and possibly scarves using natural or recycled materials
- Books and other gift items made from recycled materials
Pop Up Shop retail hours are Monday through Friday 10 AM to 6 PM, Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM with possible
extension on Saturdays depending on artisans’ interest in participating that day.
Interested artists and crafts people should send a letter of interest and photos of the work, along with a description of materials, to email@example.com.
The deadline for submissions will be October 18th.
