Be Part of the Blue Buddha Boutique Artisan Market!

At Blue Buddha Boutique, we consider ourselves lucky to be part of an extremely talented, vibrant and engaged community of artists. Now we’re excited to be able to open some space on our store shelves to members of that incredible group! B3 is now accepting applications for artists off all stripes – and not just jewelry; as long as it is handmade – to sell their goods at B3’s Pop-Up Shop in Chicago.

Blue Buddha is located on Granville Avenue, just steps from the Red Line train station, in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Our retail shop has huge windows visible to more than 1,000 passersby each day. We are open limited hours until we complete construction and are expected to increase our hours in the fall. Our aim is to be THE place to buy handmade goods on Chicago’s Far North Side! We’re looking for everything from candles to stationery to hair accessories to cat toys and have a strong preference for Chicago-area artisans.

Interested? Read on for more details, and then get your application in ASAP!

  • First and foremost, all items must be handmade!
  • The artist must be willing to ship or hand-deliver items to Blue Buddha Boutique in Chicago.
  • Items will be sold on consignment.
  • The artist may provide props or displays for products and can set up their own display in the shop (but this is not a requirement).
  • Blue Buddha Boutique will price work for sale independent of the artist, and will pay the artist the wholesale amount indicated on the inventory sheet, regardless of the price paid by customer. (Artists should base their retail price at double the wholesale price, with the exception of works of a high material cost, in which case the artist price may be as much as 70% of the suggested retail price).
  • Blue Buddha Boutique may offer discounts or sales without affecting the money due to the artist. Submit your application today.

If we are interested, we’ll contact you with a copy of our inventory sheet and artist agreement.
