Attention all etsy-enthusiasts, craftmakers, DIYers, designers, and small business owners in Connecticut!
Do you sell your homemade craft items, antiques, or retail items online, but want to expand to a brick and mortar business for a few months this summer?
Do you want to work outside next to the water while you make and sell your items in a small, colorful shop where you can display and sell your products to guests as they stroll down a boardwalk?
Captain's Cove Seaport has a limited number of outdoor shops available for rent along our boardwalk. Small business owners who make crafts or sell specialty gift items/antiques online have the opportunity to rent a reasonably priced shop for the summer months.
Details: Shop renters act as tenants who rent the shops from May through September. Shops are required to be open for a certain number of hours six days of the week. Please contact for the cost to rent a shop. We have tenants who sell personal care products, kids’ toys, homemade gift items, items from around the world, specialty clothing, jewelry, and snacks. But your shop can be anything - from a bookstore to a build-your-own keychain store to an artist’s studio.
Benefits: Tenants only rent the shop for six months, so this is a great way to test out your concept and gain exposure among locals and tourists as they pass through. Located next to the shops are a restaurant and bar. We are a popular family-friendly destination in the summer months for live outdoor music and events. Your neighbors are dedicated merchants and craftspeople from around the state. Not to mention your backyard is beautiful Long Island Sound!
