Bargain Basement Guideline update
The Bargain Basement forum is provided to our members that just need to sell individual art work, at substantial savings to our members.
It's not a place to showcase an entire collection or to offer discounts for everything you sell or a series of items that you have purchased over what you need to make your own art or to advertise your web address for items you sell.
We do want to help those artists that want to sell that single item they have in their studios that perhaps some other artist might find useful or provide a place for artist to artist exchanges of our wonderful art, but need to keep the forum free from any commercial sales, bulk buys, auction items, web sales announcements and repeat items or items that you make to sell as direct sales to artists for artists. For all those types sales, you would need to establish a real sales plan much like a gallery, manufacturer, re-seller, or self operated business and use traditional advertising.
Do NOT post web site addresses. No eBay or website links of any kind will be permitted in the Forum. Specific items for sale may not be offered on eBay or other websites, at the same time as they are offered on the Bargain Basement.
Items must be available for immediate purchase.
Posters must be at least 18 years of age or older.
No commercial ventures are allowed to be advertised on the Bargain Basement.
Any transactions resulting from a post placed in the Bargain Basement are between you, the purchaser, and the person that placed the post, the seller.
When making a purchase, use caution when giving out any personal information over the Internet or by phone. To help protect yourself, try always get a receipt for your purchases and get everything in writing, such as claims or warranties, ensuring that such documents are signed.
