About the Christmas Boutique
The Christmas Boutique is an expanded version of the centre’s year-round Artisan Shop. Artists and artisans who sell wares at the abundance of craft fairs that take place over the holiday season can take the opportunity to make extra items to display and sell in the Christmas Boutique, where Place des Arts’ qualified staff take care of the sales.
Place des Arts is currently seeking to attract artisans who create finely crafted items such as handmade tree ornaments, holiday decorations, beeswax candles, wood, glass, leather or ceramic works, hand-knitted items, particularly those made from natural fibres, etc. We are not looking for prints or photographs, greeting cards, jewelry or country crafts.
Items do not necessarily need to be Christmas themed, but can be gifts that hold year-round appeal. All works are for sale and artisans set prices. Place des Arts retains 30% of the retail price. A $10 application fee applies.
