Selling at Parts & Labour
UPDATE (June 14, 20):
Due to the impact of Covid-19 on this small business, it has been our priority to continue supporting the 90+ local makers we currently host. There will be an indefinite halt to invitations to potential new artists, however we are making efforts to elevate the presence and voices of BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color). For the indefinite future, new artist invitations are strictly limited to BIPOC visual artists and crafters effective immediately. For the first time in Parts & Labour's sixteen-year history, this artist invitation is extended to applicants based out of state. We realize this is just one step towards expanding the platform for BIPOC voices and creative expression. This invitation includes an additional consignment benefit of a 90/10 split of sales for the first four months, and a monthly donation to the nonprofit organization of the artist's choice.
