I stopped in to meet the owner of this new store, and I really love consignment and second-hand shops, anyway. A few of my artist friends have told me they had sold art at consignment stores so I asked the owner, Rebecca, how she felt about selling art in her shop. She told me to bring the art down, and I packed up all the small originals I have, the little framed sketches from the trail, the experiments with different media and works I’ve trimmed out of larger pieces. They sell well at shows and festivals, but I wouldn’t have any for a while, and the subject matter is really more suitable to what else she is selling. I thought she was only going to look them over, but to my surprise, we cleaned them up and hung them all.
The Black Lamb Consignment is located at 323 East Main Street in Carnegie. Stop in to see the interesting things she’s got!
