The Decatur Area Arts Council is looking for artists who are interested in selling their items in the 2022 Annual Holiday Gift Shoppe.  We welcome a wide variety of "giftable" and decor items to our shop for sale in the Anne Lloyd Gallery once a year.  We are looking for fine arts and crafts, needlework, wearables, woodworking, glasswork, candles, jewelry, ornaments, stocking stuffers, stained glass, ceramics, and much more.  If your handmade items would make a nice gift, we want to help you sell it!

The advantages to selling in the Holiday Gift Shoppe are:

  • No Setup.  Artists deliver their items to the DAAC, and our staff of voluneer elves will handle the display, marketing, and sales for you.  After the holidays, our staff will repack what hasn't sold for you to pick up.
  • No Booths.  Shop hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., including special days like Small Business Saturday and the Downtown Christmas Walk.  Our staff minds the store so you don't have to!
  • Make Money.  Choose the commission level for your sales that you feel comfortable with.  Download the Holiday Gift Shoppe Information Sheet HERE
