I am opening a new store for local artisans to sell their products on Main Street in Canandaigua. The store is called Finger Lakes Artisans and we are still accepting new artisans! Our store is located in a very busy location, with lots of cars AND foot traffic. We are hoping to open by Memorial Day. We have a very spacious 1700+ square foot store.
This is for HANDMADE items only, NO Direct Sales, NO buy/sell. There will be regular events throughout the months to bring in even more customers, as well as lots of advertising. We have 3 window / storefronts in our store and we will be continually featuring new artisans in the store. We want YOU to be successful in our store!
The fee for space is $50/month, and we do not take any commission, so you get all proceeds of the sale. (To put into perspective – you pay $50 and up for a few hours at one craft show.. and here you are getting an entire month for this price at the store!) You will drop off your products & contract, we will add them into our inventory system, tag them, and then place them on the sales floor. If you would like to have your own display, please email us photos of your display and we will see if it will work with the layout of the store.
We are looking into a system where artisans can log into our site at any time and see any sales they have made. You will receive payment monthly, unless you request other terms which we are happy to work with you on.
If you are interested in possibly being a vendor and selling your products in my store, please fill out the interest form here:
(Please note: I have plenty of jewelry and bath & body vendors interested in the new store. I am still looking for more decor type vendors (wood, glass, pottery, etc), more fabric made items (quilts, clothing, handbags, etc) and any other type of unique items.)
I will be sending out an email to everyone who has been accepted as an artisan in the store in the next couple of weeks.
