Top consignor offers free market for Maine artists

PORTLAND -- The largest consignment store in Maine is extending its online sales platform to Maine artists free of charge during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cherished Possessions, located in the North Deering section of Portland, said it will make its    e-commerce website and support services available to Maine artists free of charge, to help them reach consumers for their art during the COVID-19 crisis. 

“We will post any finished, consumer-oriented painting, drawing, photograph, print, pottery, jewelry, collectible, sculpt, woodwork, weave, quilt, and more from Maine artists, for sale on our website, for free,” Cherished Possessions President Sam Eakin said.

Eakin said Maine artists who submit products directly to Cherished Possessions will receive 100% of revenues from the sale of their work for the next six months, possibly longer. CP has also committed to support the effort with an ad campaign over the next 30 days. Cherished Possessions reserves the right to screen and reject submissions.
