Consign With Us

 

Andrew and Teisha Vandekop, Owners and Designers, Backyard Silversmiths

Hi! We're Andrew and Teisha Vandekop, the owners and makers at Backyard Silversmiths. We create silver jewelry in our open-to-the-public workshop located on I-35 in Central Texas between Dallas and Waco. We are now adding unique, artisan finds to our shop and we would love for you to consider us as a place to consign your art pieces!   

Backyard Silversmiths Consign with Us

Whether you are an artist/maker or someone who owns cool pieces of unique art, when you consign with Backyard Silversmiths, here are some of the benefits you receive:

  • We pay you 60% of the price within 10 business days of when your item is sold, and there are no listing fees. We also will pay for the shipping of your art to the customer. Whether the customer purchases your item from our store, or on our website, we will pay the cost to ship them to customers within the U.S.
  • Placement in our shop. Our shop is located on one of the busiest highways in America and is visited each weekend by travelers who are on vacations, staycations and college road trips between Dallas, Waco and Austin. 
  • We will promote you and your work. If you're the maker, we will distribute your provided literature with the piece. We may also share your work via video on our social media pages and blog.
  • We will care for your art. Once the items are received for consignment at Backyard Silversmiths, we will have appropriate insurance in place if they are lost, stolen, or damaged.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

As silversmiths, we appreciate handcrafted pieces – made by true craftspeople and artists in their workshops, garages, spare bedrooms, kitchen tables and backyards. After all, that’s what we do :).

We're looking for items that fall in the categories of jewelry, leather, ceramics, metalwork, accessories, visual art, paper, glass, sculpture, wood and more.

You can also consign with us if you simply own cool, art pieces. Perhaps you own pieces made of gold or silver. It could be beautiful, but it doesn't have to be! There’s a very strong market for virtually anything (in any condition), made of precious metals and they can be consigned and quickly sold. 

*At this time, we are only able to accept consignment from USA-based artists.*
