Goodyear Cottage

Jekyll Island Historic District

Jekyll Island, Georgia


The Association maintains and staffs a gift shop in Goodyear Cottage in the Jekyll Island Historic District with the work of members displayed on consignment.  The following information is for members who wish to place items in the shop for sale. If additional information is needed, or if you have a question, call Debbie Patterson at 635-3969.

Requirements for entering items into Shop inventory:

  • Artist must be a JIAA member for at least 3 months with member number assigned and current dues.
  • Every entry must be handmade, clean, undamaged, seasonally appropriate and ready for the shop. Final decision on items appropriate to the Shop rests with the Shop Manager.
  • All items are to be entered online and placed in the Goodyear kitchen.  The online system assigns you the number to use. Fill out the price tags in the kitchen and make sure they correspond to the online number and attach them. If you are unable to register your items online, use the normal entry forms in the kitchen, begin item numbering with the #1 and attach your price tags.
  • The Shop Committee will place artwork in the shop. Please do not rearrange items in the shop.
  • Business cards, if used, MUST be attached to the entry. Please do not leave stacks of business cards.
  • Artists who place items in the shop are expected to volunteer in some JIAA activity for at least 2 hours each year.


Member entries are limited to 10 items. Examples:

  • 3 sweaters plus 7 hats equals 10 items in inventory.
  • 10 packages of cards = 10 items in inventory.
  • 6 pottery pieces and 4 prints = 10 items in inventory.
  • Each item must adhere to the Goodyear numbering system.
  • Members may enter a new item when one has sold.
  • Members keep track of their own inventory.
  • Artists set their own prices; the minimum price is $5.00.
  • Members receive 75% of a sold item’s price. Checks are sent bimonthly.

Additional Limitations (Note Change)

  • Wall art is limited to three pieces per artist and MUST have a wire hanger. We CANNOT accept sawtooth hangers as our display system does not accommodate them.
  • Paintings and photographs should not exceed a perimeter of 120 inches.
  • Framed fine art (oils, watercolors, pastels, pen and ink, etc) must be originals.
  • Due to changes in technology, framed fine art prints made by print making or by inkjet printers (formerly referred to as Giclee), are accepted but are not considered original. They must be CLEARLY marked that they are prints and not originals and should be priced accordingly.
  • Due to changes in technology, framed on canvas photographs electronically produced by inkjet printing (formerly referred to as Giclee), may now be entered.
  • Unframed prints of fine art and photography are placed in bins, must be individually numbered, matted and shrink wrapped. No prints in tubes.
  • It is suggested that all prints, including photography, be identified as either a limited edition or an unlimited edition for the benefit of the purchaser. A limited edition is signed and numbered in this way: number of the print/total number in edition (1/45), title, artist. An unlimited edition may be left unsigned or signed in this way: UL, title, artist.
  • An item may be in the Shop for a maximum of six months or at the manager’s discretion.  Please monitor your inventory and rotate items every six months. All inventory must be displayed. There is no provision for storage at Goodyear.

The JIAA is not held responsible for security of items. Missing, broken, or mismarked items are not the responsibility of the Jekyll Island Arts Association. Any items not picked up when requested will become the property of JIAA and will be used for fundraising for JIAA and other island organizations.
