The Giftshop use to be home to all Cranbrook Arts events, even kids workshops! However, since the purchase and renovation of the 1401 Artspace in 2019, The Giftshop's objective has shifted and now solely focuses on providing a home to artist consignment.

Here at Cranbrook Arts we sell on a consignment basis. Our consignment fee is 30%. But it can be lowered by volunteering 1-2 days a month at the Giftshop. Benefits of selling in the store includes exposure of your work to over 10 000 yearly visitors, as well as promotion on our social media accounts and features in our display window. Artists can sell in the store after going through the adjudication process (insuring the goods are of sellable quality). Adjudication is done through email. Please email email@example.com the following:
