We at ArtsandCraftsCollector.com recognize that due to the changing landscape, collectors have grown confident and comfortable by buying pieces online that in the past they might have only bought in person at a gallery or shows. The transition into online purchase has surpassed its rare status into the norm; in the spring of 2019, a US Department of Commerce report showed the total market share of online U.S. retail sales was higher than general in-store sales for the first time in history, aided by the ease and usability of the online shopping environment and a growing number of financially-empowered tech-savvy buyers. A year later, due to orders to stay home to avoid the spread of COVID-19, sales are increasing online more than ever.
Towards that end, we are listing below some of the exhibitors at the National Arts and Crafts Conference and Shows and we encourage you not only to visit their online salesroom, but to establish a relationship with them, which will carry over into next year’s National Arts and Crafts Shows at the Grove Park Inn. We will be publishing a series of these articles in the oncoming weeks and will continue to highlight small businesses, non-profit organizations, and historic sites in this time of need.
In this week’s series of articles, we are highlighting the visually stunning world of Art Pottery and Artwork. In no particular order, here are some suggestions for online sources for artwork and art pottery:
