Our shop is a space for art you can understand.
If you are interested in selling in the Handmade Gift Shop:
We sell work that is beautiful and impeccably well made, yet accessible. We love functional art, because it is art that becomes part of your everyday life.
Send us an email to info(at)550arts(dot)com with a link to your website or samples of your work, and include a list of other places you sell and any other pertinent information. We are looking for top notch craftsmanship, unique creations, and professionalism. The work needs to be in a “reasonable” price range, say $5-$150 to stay accessible to the average buyer. We will reach out if we are interested in selling your work.
Please DO NOT stop into the studio with a portfolio or your website open on your iPhone unannounced. Staff is often teaching and the ones who jury the shop are not always available. We’d like to be able to give you the focused attention you deserve, but we also don’t want to waste anyone’s time if we know it isn’t going to be a good match.

Welcome to the Handmade Gift Shop, Dear Maker.
