PRICING YOUR ART FOR RESALE: Please DO NOT leave this until delivery day!

Price items between $15.00 and $2500.

Do your homework! Look online for resale prices of work by that artist, if applicable. You will not get back what you paid for it, in most cases. Ask your friends what they would pay. Larger pieces usually sell for more than smaller ones. Original art will bring more than a print in general, unless the print is very appealing or from a well-known artist. Use your knowledge of other resale experiences.  Work with a group of others entering the sale and make collaborative decisions on prices. We will ask you if it is a print or an original.



Early Bird registration: $5 per artwork The Early Bird drop off: Tues. May 19, 11:00 – 2:00 at the Old Courthouse, 7 Seymour St. West, Kamloops. The early bird registration guarantees 3 -5 artwork(s) will be displayed on the first day of the sale. Art sold is removed immediately, so in the event there are more pieces than spaces, they will be displayed on a “first come, first served basis”. Having said that, our display area is very large! As pieces sell and space becomes available, new ones will be displayed. (If you plan to bring a large number of pieces, be aware that we may not be able to hang all of them right away, to be fair to other entrants.  E.g. 5 out of 10 pieces will be shown at maximum for early bird.)


Regular Registration: $2 per artwork.

Drop off: Tuesday, May 19 3-5 p.m., and Wednesday, May 20, 10am – 2pm, 5– 7pm. Old Courthouse, 7 Seymour St. West, Kamloops.




Sculpture and art pottery will be displayed and sold in the gallery on the main floor.

TNSC reserves the right to make changes to the display at any time to hang new pieces. Sold pieces will leave with the purchaser once payment has been made. Sellers will be contacted re the sale. Space will be filled with new work. (The display will change often! Every day there will be new treasures to admire and take home.)


Sunday, May 24 is final day of the sale. Mark Down Prices will be applied for this last day. Discount will be as indicated on the entry form. (See entry form for more info)  YOU MUST HAVE A DISCOUNT OF AT LEAST 5%!
