Gift Shop Guidelines

  • Items for the gift shop may be brought in by arrangement with the gift shop manager, Sue Wierzba 207-361-4541
  • All items must be original hand crafted and each crafter may offer a diversity of items. Number of items accepted will be determined by their size, number and space available.
  • All exhibiters in the YAA Gift Shop must be members who are up-to-date with their membership. (membership is $40 from October 1 2013 – September 30, 2014.
  • A YAA Gift Shop form will be available at drop off or on our website. This agreement will include contact information for the craft person and an inventory list of items accepted. Each item must be given an assigned number and have a price tag affixed to it at drop off.
  • An effort will be made to rotate gift shop items to provide opportunity for as many as possible qualified artists and crafters to market their work. Gift Shop manager will provide an exhibit schedule as needed.
  • We hope to keep our gift shop fresh and attractive at all times. Final decisions regarding numbers of items accepted and displayed will be made by Gift shop manager with approval of YAA Board.
  • Sales will be handled, as in the past by the gallery attendant on duty. YAA receives a 30% commission on all sales. Crafters will be paid by the 15th of the month following a sale.
  • We have Glass Display Shelving, but a minimum of display hardware. If you are bringing small items, you might want to bring your own small display.
  • Any questions regarding items of interest can discussed with GS Manager who will be happy to make an appointment to review new items for possible display.
  • UNCLAIMED WORK – The Gift Shop and the Gallery are only opened from April through the Holidays. All framed art work, and gift shop itemsleft at the end of the year will be stored temporarily in the BACK storage room. Contact Gift Shop Manager if you need to make special arrangements to pick up gift shop items. Any work unclaimed by the end of the year will become the property of YAA.
