> Greetings, my name is Jim Revells I am a craftsperson doing both modern
> metalsmithing & experimental archaeology. I am moving to Wilmington,
> Vermont to open a gift store & art gallery. So, I need to find artist
> that are willing to consign some of their goods in my new store "Olaf's
> Plunder". The store will open the first week of October.
> What is "Olaf's Plunder" going to be? Basically it is going to be a
> gift store & art gallery oriented towards the tourist that come to Snow
> Valley (http://www.wilmingtonvermont.us/). The customer base tends
> towards the upscale market.
> I intend to have a selection of fine crafts presented for my customers
> selection. This would include (but not be limited to) metal work of all
> kinds, blades, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, painting, prints, photography,
> glass, clothing & wood work. I am not going to limit my scope on the art
> in the store other than that I believe it to be well done. I intend to
> have a 60/40 split with my artist, which seems to be the norm for NH & VT.
> There will be a selection of Scandinavian gifts, including
> non-perishable foods, candy, books, knick-knacks, tee shirts, & art
> objects. Many of the items will be Viking Age themed. I am also
> interested in finding additional wholesale gift suppliers, especially any
> doing European or Scandinavian imports.
> We are going to be doing business on the web (at
> www.olafsplunder.com), the web site should be up before the store opens.
> I am willing to cross link my web site to anyone who consigns goods to me
> (at no charge if there is no charge to me), as a brand new member of the
> local Chamber of Commerce they are going to link my web site with theirs.
> Any artist who do not have web sites will be featured in my on-line
> gallery. Interested artist can contact me at sudnserv5 at verizon.net.
