Here are some of the beautiful, handmade items you will find in the Carriage House when we open our doors.
We are Gloria Watanabe (the Boston Woman) & Janet Nelson, two Weymouth artisans, who want to share an exciting opportunity with you. We are developing plans for an Artists Boutique in Jackson Square in Weymouth. The boutique would feature the work of local artisans, who would each have their own dedicated space in the shop that they could design to highlight their work. We hope to have a variety of artists and wares to continually entice shoppers to spend time checking out all the different items and keep returning to see what’s new. A select group of artisans will be chosen to ensure that the boutique offers consistent quality and avoids multiple people selling similar products. Each artisan would help to staff the shop at least one day a month to build a connection with the community and create a rapport with customers who love to shop local.
We have been a part of temporary artists’ groups in neighboring towns and wanted to create a more permanent community here in Weymouth. We already have a mailing list of interested customers who have supported us in the past and can’t wait for our new boutique to open. We’ve found a unique home for our Jackson Square Artisans in a great location that would be perfect for this group, and give us plenty of opportunity for growth. The initial plan would have the shop operate Thursdays through Sundays with an opening day in the spring. The cost to participate would be approximately $75-$100 per month, depending on the number of artisans. This fee would cover all rent, utilities, insurance, advertising and maintenance. We are unable to accept any work on commission at this time.
Please feel free to pass on this information to any other artists, crafters or designers who may be interested. We’d love to share more about our ideas and details about the space! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
