Sell fine art, craft and books at the gift shop
Why does the park want to sell your art, crafts or books?
In 2021 the park launched a new gift shop in the visitor centre featuring Parks Canada official merchandising. In 2022, the park would now like to support artists, artisans and authors from the neighbouring communities by showcasing and selling artistic works and books in a dedicated space in the gift shop. The art pieces or books that visitors buy remind them of their experience at the park and increase their connection to the local cultures.
What are visitors asking to buy?
Visitors come from all over Canada and beyond and many have asked for authentic, local, and hand crafted work. It is expected that authentic arts and crafts such as baskets, beadwork, quillwork, jewelry, carvings, pottery, weaving and more, would be well received by visitors. Artists need to keep in mind that visitors often seek small, packable, and easy-to-transport items. Visitors interested in larger, additional, or more items can be put in contact directly with individuals, associations and communities. Visitors also ask for books relating to nature, the cultures and the history of Kouchibouguac National Park and the Maritime Plain Natural Region.
