Art Garage Sale Members' Art Supplies Swap and Sale – Open to the Public to Shop! Wednesday, July 15, 10am to noon. Rain date, Wednesday, July 22 at the garden of the Saugatuck-Douglas History Center in 130 Center Street in Douglas (aka the Old School House).
Artists don’t need a garage to have a sale. All that is needed is some tables, some art supplies, books, frames and even art that you want to sell or barter... plus a bunch of eager artists. Please join in our first arty garage sale. Bring items that you no longer use or need and watch them get snatched up by other artists who are either just delving into the art world or have always wanted to try a new medium or technique. Each artist will be responsible for pricing and selling their items.
1. What kind of stuff can we bring? Only materials that are used in a studio. No other items, like household items, are allowed. 2. Where will I put my stuff to sell? Each artist will bring a table that will fit your items. Your items need to fit on this table or leaned up against it. There will be people to help you move your table from your vehicle. 3. How do I sell my stuff? The sale is similar to any other garage sale. Checks or cash only. Please be prepared to make change. 4. How do I barter for other stuff? You can approach another artist and ask them to trade something from your table for something from their table. 5. What else do I need to bring? Bags, wrapping material, tape. Each artist is responsible for their own merchandise and bagging it. 6. Can I bring artwork? Certainly! A great way to trade art with other artists. 7. What happens to the stuff after the sale? Any of the unsold merchandise must be taken away. 8. What time can I set up? The event begins at 10am. Make sure that everything is priced and ready to sell by 9:30. 9. Can I invite other people to attend? By all means, the public is invited to shop! 10. What if I have stuff to sell but I can’t attend? You will need to find someone else to set up, sell and remove your merchandise.
