BEST OF NOVA SCOTIA LAUNCHES NOV 20
A new web to feature art, craft design & “cool stuff” from the heart & soul of Canada is set to launch on November 20.
BESTofNOVASCOTIA.com is a sales portal for cool things produced in Nova Scotia, including fine art & craft (painting, sculpture, ceramics, carving, etc), design, home ware, fashion and funk – with a little of the kitchen sink thrown in.
We are looking for artists/artisans who can reliably produce great stuff, at pricing designed to sell. If this sounds like something that might work for you, give is a shout and let’s have a wee chat.
In addition to offering a great selection of cool stuff, we plan to offer NO TAX on sales and FREE SHIPPING during the launch – at least through December 31. If all goes as well as planned, we’ll continue the free shipping.
Here is how artists/producers can be a part of BEST of NOVA SCOTIA:
1.) Produce enough art or other cool stuff to desire/require online sales
2.) Provide excellent photography of your work.
3.) Provide winning descriptions of your work
4.) Be very clear about the pricing of your work. Final online pricing will likely be a result of discussions between you and me.
5.) Be prepared to safely package your work and deliver to Canada Post (in most cases Best of Nova Scotia will pay for shipping).
THERE IS NO FEE TO PARTICIPATE
Sample pricing/selling/payment options include: Option A): name the price to you for your work and we set the price on the web and guarantee you get 100% of price you require, within 10 days of shipping. Option B): You set online price and BestofNS retains 25% of sales revenue, plus $5.00 towards shipping.
Using shipping labels pre-paid by BestNS and emailed to you, you are responsible for packaging and delivering parcel to Canada Post.
The site will offer free shipping, plus no tax (at least until Dec 31)
Artists/producers who provide a substantial number of products (paintings, sculptures, hooked rugs, garments, etc) will have their own “collection” on the site, reachable through a distinct URL where you can send your special customers directly. A sample of Collections is here: http://bit.ly/2fVBvQO

The site is set now on review mode (folks can look, but not buy) and is being populated with an eye to Nov 20 official launch. Black Friday week promotions later in the month and other promo and sales gimmicks will occur all the way to Christmas.
