I am part of a co-operative of artists, creators and producers, who run a small shop in the village of Vallière, in La Creuse. Set up and operated by the Mairie (the town council), the boutique is staffed by the artists and producers themselves. The shop doesn’t charge commision on what it sells (there was just a small fee to join the association) so the money you spend there goes straight to the artist/creator/producer.
If you are in La Creuse (central France) in August 2014 come and check us out!
