Penn's Place Seeks New Artisans!

The Artisans Gifts & Gallery — part of Trader's Cove at Penn's Place — has served as an artisan small business incubator and retail shopping experience since July 2010. Located in the former William Penn Bed & Breakfast, directly across the street from the Court House Museum and central location of Delaware's National Park in Old New Castle, it has become a shopping destination for unique, handmade gifts and accessories.

Trader's Cove at Penn's Place is now seeking a few new artisans and craftspeople to fill available gallery/display space in the artist co-op.  The space can be filled by one or more artisans sharing the footprint.  Monthly rent is $167 and includes the following amenities:

  • Includes A/C, heat, water, electric and trash removal
  • Each room is equipped with its own A/C unit 
  • Free Wi-Fi thoughout the building
  • Website promotion and cooperative marketing efforts to promote your business 
  • Access to Color Printer at no additional charge
  • Break Room: Private room with table and 4 chairs, bathroom, closets, mini refrigerator and microwave
  • Trader’s Cove: A Best of Delaware Winner coffee shop located in the building to attract additional traffic to Penn’s Place
  • The Muse: A LIVE Entertainment Venue/Private Event space also designed to drive more traffic to the location 
  • Cooperative Coverage: We understand that you have demands on your time outside of Penn’s Place. We cover for each other and communicate on everything...together we are greater than the sum of our parts to help grow your business
  • Collaborative Effort: Meaning we are always open to new ideas and input 
The space is a cooperative effort; each occupying artist is expected to volunteer time in working in the gallery (artist themselves or their representative). Required time is one day per week (approximately 5-7 hours).
