New Aprons by Mrs. Gritzy!

Mrs. Gritzy paid us a visit the other day and she brought a fabulous new selection of adult and child-sized aprons with her! One of my favorites is this coffee bean apron:

Mrs. Gritzy also knits great kitchen scrubbies and washcloths, among other things. You can find her on Facebook here.

ALL of her aprons are available in the shop or on our website! We are currently re-vamping our online shop and are adding new items every week. Bookmark www.eclipsegalleryshop.com and check back often. Here’s a direct link to the aprons.

NEW: Amazing Soy Candles

I am totally in love with the new candles we got in — All You Need Is Candles is a soy candle line by Katie Porterfield. They smell soooo amazing, you just have to come in to smell them. For example, she has created an “Apple Barn” scent that actually smells like an apple BARN. Not just a simple apple scent, no. It actually smells like you just walked into an old apple orchard barn — it’s amazing.

Another great aspect about Katie’s candles is that they are made from 100% soy wax from soy that is grown by American Farmers. She also supports WI business by purchasing her supplies through a family-run business in Northern WI.

Right now we have many fall scents available in different sizes. We also have tarts that can be melted in any type of warmer and reused until they stop smelling. Winter scents will be coming in soon. These make a great holiday gift!

You can also find All You Need Is Candles on Facebook here.

Thanks for buying local and buying handmade!

seeking new makers/crafters/designers

The busy season is quickly approaching! We are currently accepting submissions for handmade items on consignment. I am especially looking for unique designs and products, so if this sounds like you, please email me at sarah@theeclipsegallery.com  ASAP as space is limited!

Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions:

What kinds of things are you looking for?

We are looking for cutting-edge, contemporary artwork, fine craft, and handmade design. We only accept handmade work of the highest craftsmanship & quality. We prefer work that does not duplicate or closely resemble anything that is currently in our gallery & store, or other galleries & stores. We also like to work with artists who have a cohesive body of work, in order to have an effective display. We accept submissions from both emerging & established artists. We LOVE art and design that is made from natural and/or recycled materials, or is in some other way earth-friendly, but it doesn’t have to be.

Some things we need right now include:

natural personal care products (100% handmade)
small, lower priced items like magnets, photo frames, etc.
accessories
handmade art/craft supplies (like hand carded/dyed wool yarn)
paper goods
furniture
artist books and zines
children’s items
candles
glass ware
household items
you get the idea :)

some things we do not need are: jewelry, ceramics, and bags/purses

How does this work?

You set the retail price for your work. We charge a fee of 40% of the retail price for each item sold. That means you get 60% of each item you sell through our store AND you don’t have to worry about any of the costs associated with running an art & design gallery. Your work may also be included on our website for online sale (not on Etsy). You only get charged if an item sells, there are no registration or hidden fees. You are responsible for delivering the artwork and/or handmade goods to our store. You are free to withdraw your goods from the store at anytime, but you are responsible for the pick-up or return shipping.

When will I get paid?

Every 30 days we send you a check directly. We also supply you with a report of exactly which items you have sold, and what you still have in our inventory. No phone calls to check on sales or inventory, please. We will be too busy selling your work!

Is there a contract to sign?

Yes. If we decide to consign your artwork and/or handmade goods, we will e-mail you a contract and an inventory list  that you can print out and include in your shipment of artwork/goods. That way, we are both protected and you can rest easy.

I want to consign my work with you. Now what do I do?

Send us your submission by e-mailing us 5-7 images of your work along with a brief description. Make sure to include your contact information, the price range of your work, a short bio, and your artist statement, if applicable. Also include any links where we can see more examples of your work.  Our e-mail address is sarah@theeclipsegallery.com

What should I expect after sending a submission?

We will take about a week or so to review your application. If we choose to accept your work, we will send you an e-mail back and give you further instructions. We can answer any other questions that you have at that time.

Do you take wholesale orders?

We may wholesale orders for certain items or if you have consigned with us before and have a proven track record.

Do you accept International consignments?

Not at this time, although this may change in the future.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to e-mail us at sarah@theeclipsegallery.com

New at Eclipse!

Looking for a truly unique gift? Keep us in mind for your holiday shopping! We have some new and exciting things at the gallery, including these great treasure boxes made with found objects and handmade paper by local artist Kirsten Christanson!
