Maker Spaces Available Seasonally: June - December 2024. 

It is important to Blank Canvas Art Supplies that we showcase a selection of handmade/handcrafted works by Island Makers. It is mandatory that all of our Makers are the creators and designers of their products. During the peak tourism months (June-October), products must have some relation to the motifs and themes of the Island or be handcrafted on Prince Edward Island.

All membership rentals are charged HST.

Covered in the rental cost:

 - Online promotion through social media platforms (Instagram and Facebook)
- Accurate inventory tracking
- Debit/credit transaction fees
- Bags and tissue
- Restocking and tidying
- Makers will be notified if stock is running low so that it can be replenished
- Monthly sales payouts via direct deposit after the end of the 4th week

Rental Period: 4 week minimum

 

The Fine Print:

  • Blank Canvas Art Supplies reserves the right to limit the number of Makers who sell similar items in order to insure variety and selection to our customers.
  • We cannot accept artisans who are purchasing and selling through third party sourcing.
  • We cannot accept Makers whose work is manufactured/produced outside of Canada; products or work imported for resale.
  • Makers may sell only those products they have been approved for. Makers may not sublet or rent out their space to another seller. If an existing Maker wishes to sell other products it must be approved of by Blank Canvas Art Supplies before putting them out on sale.
  • Vendors are encouraged to have their own insurance. Blank Canvas Art Supplies is not responsible for any product loss due to theft, damages, or any liability for accidents of persons or property.
  • Products sold by Makers are NON REFUNDABLE and not eligible for exchange or store credit. If there is an issue with a product, customers will be urged to reach out to the maker directly.

FAQs

Can I come see the space before I sign up?

Absolutely! You can come by the store to check us out during business hours, or email to book an appointment with us outside of regular business hours.

Do I need to make a long-term commitment?

No. We offer 4-week minimum terms. If you choose to stay with us longer, a minimum of 2 weeks notice is required to extend your time or end your time wiith us as there are other vendors interested in selling their work in our space.

What if I decide this isn’t the right fit for me?

No problem at all. We understand that our store may not be the right fit for everyone. A minimum of 2 weeks notice is required to opt out of your membership.

Can a friend and I share the rental space?

No, only one business/vendor is allowed per space.

How do I get paid?

Payouts are sent by e-transfer at the end of the 4-week term. This applies whether or not you continue to rent a space for a longer period.
