Buy or sell at our third annual “One Artist’s Trash is Another Artist’s Treasure” Tag Sale and Trade Event. Sponsored by the CT Plein Air Society (CPAPS.org). This is your opportunity to reduce that invasive art inventory, or, better yet, explore a new medium at a great price!
There is no charge and no commission, and it is open to any anyone who has supplies to sell or aquire. We will be outdoors rain or shine, so If you have supplies to sell, simply RSVP so I know how many are coming, price your items, bring a table or whatever you need to display your items, and, in case it looks like rain, perhaps a large umbrella for you and clear plastic for the sale items.
Each person is responsible for his or her own sales.
September 29, 2018, 10:00 AM till 4:00 PM. Set up will be anytime after 8:00 AM.
Any and all art items are welcome, including but not limited to: Frames, mat board, canvas, brushes, pastels, paints, paper, furniture, also ceramic, jewelry, or sculpture supplies. There will be plenty of free materials available also, including books, art magazines, used brushes, broken china for mosaic, mat board pieces, and lots of paper of various finishes and sizes.
I personally will offer for sale duplicate oil paints, many frames of excellent quality, and another large lot of frames to give away…all are in good shape, but not what I use any more. I have a very large quantity of 32 x 40” acid free mat board, plus molding lengths, a new in-box chop saw, and various materials for framing.
To participate with items to sell, please call Shauna at 860-429-3646 and leave a message.
