Bits & Pieces utilizes the co-op/collective model to make up our local sellers community. While we will occasionally work with the right seller on consignment, 96% of our store is made up of designers who choose to pay a small monthly booth rent in exchange for a higher commission return in their favor.
Each renting seller is given an agreed upon amount of space - a "mini store" - that is specifically dedicated to their products. Creating a strong brand identity through your display, and selling your most popular items to our customer base are easy here, as the merchandising will always be to your liking and - more importantly - your standards.
While the spaces featured below do not encompass available space in the store (we love being creative with our sellers to create new spaces!), these are our most popular options. Read below to find out more about each space and the rental rate involved for each. All rates listed are monthly.
6'x5'x1.25' (h x w x d) Large free-standing space gives you endless ways to display your entire collection. This space is $110 per month plus 20% commission. (does not include fixture - please see attached suggestions)
3'x5'x1.25' (h x w x d) Small free-standing space gives you endless ways to display your smaller collection. This space is $55 per month plus 20% commission. (does not include fixture - please see attached suggestions)
3.5' x 6' x 1.25' (h x w x d) Reserved for our handmade apparel designers, our ballet bar spaces help you create a true mini boutique all your own.

6'x1.5' Our long wall shelves are a fantastic way to display a large amount of merchandise in one single space. With the ability to feature any kind of merchandise, from bath & body, to stationery, to housewares, to jewelry, sky is the limit with this well featured wall area. Each long shelf unit is $100 plus 20% commission. (includes shelf)
3'x1.5' Our short wall shelves are made up of large boutique units that are shared by several different designers. This is the best way for burgeoning designers - just starting their business - to get a good footing on what works for their business with the commitment of cost that comes with a larger space. Spaces on single wall shelves is extremely limited, but are a great option for both the indie newbie and more seasoned artist, who has a smaller collection. Single wall shelves are $80 plus 20% commission. (includes shelf)
Our art wall space is a fantastic way to show many small pieces of work, or several large pieces that make a great statement. The art wall space is a flat 40% commission.
Our other space dedicated to wall artists, the art wall + display space is perfect for the traditional artist who has branched out to create small tangibles of their work. With a shelf space, and under-shelf display space, you can have the absolute best of all worlds, in one dedicated area. The Art Wall + Display space is $150 plus 20% commission.
Volunteer To decrease your fees you may volunteer time in the store. A $10 credit per hour will be applied to your account.
Payouts Payouts will occur twice a month (15th and 30th). Rental fees for the following month will be deducted prior to payout. Once your account has a minimum of $25 it may be paid out. Marketing Bits and Pieces will do some sort of advertising in local directories and on Facebook- but they’re probably not specifically advertising what’s in your booth. Some ideas- you can list photos and prices on Instagram and other platforms and then direct people to the store and your booth. You can also advertise on your Facebook page or on your blog page or website if you have one.
