All consigned work must be original in design and made by the consignee. No decorated commercially- made items or items using religious symbols will be accepted.
The craftsperson establishes retail prices. In the event of sale the craftsperson will receive 60% of the selling price. Crafts People issues checks within 45 days of sale. No telephone calls or e-mail to inquire about sales or inventory will be accepted. Retail prices established by the craftsperson may not be changed. We encourage the craftsperson to offer the best possible price at time of delivery. The craftsperson agrees not to sell or consign items elsewhere for less than the retail price established at Crafts People. No display tags or labels should be attached including the artist's contact information.
The craftsperson is responsible for keeping records of his inventory and sales payments. Checks for consignment payments will indicate the selling price only of each item; no item description will be included, i.e. $25.00 plus $25.00 = $50.00 x 60% = $30.00

A fully completed Consignment Contract must accompany the first delivery each year. (Consignment lists and contracts are available on our website under the "Consignment" heading.
