Call for Artisans ~ Discover Quincy's Holiday Pop Up Shop 2018
Calling all local artisans! Thanks to a local business, Discover Quincy welcomes local artists with the opportunity to show and sell their work at our temporary retail location during the holiday season. Priority will be given to Quincy area artists to sell unique, handmade works; art, ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, metalwork, mixed media, photography, woodwork and more. In the past three years, Discover Quincy has showcased 100+ local artisans, selling $69,000 of their products in the twelve days a year we were open to the public. We expect this year to be even better! Participating is free, however, artisans are expected to volunteer a minimum of four hours and will be charged a 15% sales commission to help cover the event expenses. We also welcome local non-profit organizations and will waive commissions for their participation. We are finalizing our location and dates and will announce as soon as confirmed. This event is about supporting arts and culture, the creative economy, and our community. Discover Quincy is an organization that prides itself on inclusiveness and collaboration with local organizations in efforts to build a stronger sense of community amongst our partners and volunteers for the benefit of our residents and visitors", says Margaret Laforest, Vice President of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce.
