Makers Mark is closing

30 07 2010

Only a quick update tonight…

A friend, who is on the Makers Mark Gallery mailing list, sent me the below this afternoon:

information from Makers Mark newsletter; used under the fair dealings provisions of the Copyright Act 1968 / c1975

It’s official then, Makers Mark is closing their doors on 14th August 2010.

I would expect that the larger discounts are not applying to artist works being sold on commission, as that would reduce their potential return; so perhaps the higher discounts are for the in-house pieces.

Also see the previous stories (first and second) and the comments left –  it seems store credit, gift vouchers and special orders are not being honoured; and that holders may simply be like any other creditors of the failed business.

I’d welcome comments about experiences and opinions of makers and buyers affected by this closure.
