Our Mission

In the beginning, Arts and Craft studios at H.O.M.E. were developed as a means for low-income families to augment their income. Community members produced items in the studios or at their homes to sell on consignment in H.O.M.E.’s Craft Store. From bird houses to potholders, there is something for everybody. H.O.M.E.’s Craft Store is open Monday through Friday, 8 am – 4 pm except for the months of February and March when they are closed. 

How it works...

Crafters are assigned a crafter number to help us keep track of items sold. Crafters determine their own pricing for their products. We ask when pricing products to keep in mind that our consignment sales are: 70% of monies go to the crafter and 30% of monies go to H.O.M.E. This helps keep the lights and heat on in the Craft Store. Crafter’s are cut a check monthly once they accumulate at least $10 in sales.

Guests of our shelters who create items to be sold in our craft store receive 100% from the sales of their products.

More ways to earn...

Items in our Craft Store have the opportunity for more exposure to sales as H.O.M.E. staff bring a variety of items to sell at local and out-of-state craft fairs mostly during the Christmas holiday season. H.O.M.E. also has an Etsy store that can be found here:
