We’re looking for talented local artists and craftspeople to feature in our fourth holiday shop at the Historic Shell Station in Downtown Issaquah: 232 Front St N. If you make great gifty goods we want to feature you!

This holiday shop is curated and run by Alison Lang of So, There (andsothere.com); and will focus on fun, unique, handmade gifts of all sorts. The shop will be open weekends, from Thanksgiving to New Year 2019 in beautiful, festive Downtown Issaquah.

If you make it, we want to see it! We are looking for handmade: fashion accessories, jewelry, pillows, candles, textiles, home accessories, small furniture pieces, journals, stationery, books, office accessories, electronic gadgets, games, children’s toys, and more! Original art pieces and locally designed items will also be considered– Please note, though, that hanging and displaying original pieces is extremely difficult in the space, which limits the kinds of pieces I can display.


A few more important things

    • Artists must be able to drop off stock on November 24 or 25, and pick up on December 31st or January 1st.
    • Shop commission is 40% to cover insurance, display, processing fees, and venue. Artist will receive 60% of sales, via check or PayPal by January 30th, 2020.
    • Artists must affix a price tag and business name to each item (pencil prices are ok!) Special packaging or tags are welcome.
    • Priority will be given to early applicants and those that are very local to Issaquah.
    • If you have a display or furniture piece you love to use, and are willing to lend, let us know! (Pieces may be used for other artists.)
