What is the The River Artisans’ Cooperative?
The River Artisans Cooperative is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting local artists and craftsmen.
A Crafts Co-op
Formerly The Jelly Bean Tree, The River Artisans is Vermont’s oldest crafts cooperative.
To become a member artist, each applicant’s work must pass a jury process based on craftsmanship, originality and use of materials. Once accepted, the cooperative also offers new members with a place to sell their artwork.
Our gallery/shop has been in continuous operation since 1975. It has helped hundreds of artists to establish themselves in the crafts market. The River Artisans store has become a favorite stop for many repeat visitors to Vermont.
Where is The River Artisans’ Shop?
Housed in the historic section of Saxtons River at 26B Main Street, the shop displays the work of our juried members. On any given day, one might find, pottery, baskets, woven and silk scarves, papier maché gifts, jewelry, paintings, baby items, photographs, knitted clothing and bags, note cards, potpourri, items made of marbled paper and fabric, candles, wood carvings and other hand-crafted goods for sale there. New items are introduced often.
