Have creative work you want to sell online in your own shop? Email to signup! (The pilot term is over. The online platform is being renovated. We'll contact you when ready.)

ArtCommons.ca is a venue of independent creative shops.

1) ArtCommons.ca IS AN ECOMMERCE PLATFORM providing a business opportunity to independent artists, designers, crafts people and vintage collectors who would like to show n'sell their own work online. Each participant receives their own independent shop.

2) ArtCommons.ca IS A COMMUNITY MARKETPLACE displaying inventory from all our shops in one place so buyers can "BUY LOCAL" and SHOP GLOBALLY making it easier for you and your items to be found year round! (https://artcommons.ca)

3) ArtCommons.ca IS A SHOWCASE presenting stories, events and gallery presentations. From professionals and youth in community to our very own shop merchants, the showcase highlights challenges, promotes process and supports creative people and their work. (https://artcommons.ca/debut)

BUYERS, there is no need to register to shop! Purchase unique fine art, handmade crafts and creatively re-purposed items directly from shop merchants.

SELLERS, there are no upfront fees and no need for your credit card information! Your store checkout partners with Canada Post and PayPal directly. ArtCommons.ca receives a modest 12% commission once you sell. Contact us if you are interested in building your shop. We can help you acquire the skills to manage your shop.

ArtCommons.ca is ready to be challenged by your individual business requirements as there are many marketing opportunities available to explore. For example, at ArtCommons.ca buyers can "shop by theme" or "shop to make a difference". An individual, agency, group, event, association or organization can propose a theme. Then participating shop merchants can market a selection of items so buyers can shop by a theme or a worthy cause. Contact for more information.
