      Long Established Frame Shop, Arts and Crafts Supplies & Art Gallery


      This nicely designed and attractive art center and gallery is located in the heart of bustling affluent area of Cape Cod.  The area is particularly busy and has enormous foot traffic during the summer months and the holiday season.  It first opened in 1989 as a gallery featuring the owner’s works and over the years has  morphed into a full service arts center offering custom framing, arts and crafts supplies and workshops and other educational activities.  In addition to the owner’s works, the gallery also exhibits the work from many local artists and hosts regular exhibits and receptions. Woodruff’s enjoys an excellent reputation for the quality and variety of its artwork and for its custom framing and glazing options.  The framing component specializes in custom, high quality, conservation framing.

      The retail area also displays a variety of arts supplies and materials ranging from those for fine arts to “Back to School” and holiday materials. The leased premises comprise about 1,640 square feet.   The monthly rent is based on ten percent (10%) of gross sales which, over the past three years has averaged about $2,500 per month.  The landlord will negotiate a new lease with a fixed rent or along similar terms with a new owner.  There is parking available along the street in front and there is ample parking to the rear of the store with direct access to the store.

      There is an attractive website as well as a Facebook page and other social media such as Twitter and The current owner works four days per week  spending most of the time on advertising/promotion, social media, merchandising and framing.  One employee is effectively the manager who is capable of managing the store without assistance.  There are three additional employees, all of whom perform multiple tasks including custom frame designing, mat and glass cutting, canvass stretching, gallery hanging and retail sales.  About half of receipts come from framing; 38% from art supplies; and, 12% from the sale of artwork. The cost of goods sold has averaged 33%.  Much of the artwork in the Gallery is on consignment, thus the artists share of the sale (50%) is included in the cost of goods. Sales through April of 2016 are up 32% over 2015.  The owner is looking forward to retirement and will provide transitional orientation and training including introductions to their key artists, artisans, suppliers and vendors.

      The business along with the leasehold improvements, website and social media, marketing materials, production equipment, exclusive arrangements, furnishings, fixtures, trade name and goodwill and equipment is offered at $50,000 plus inventory.  The Art Center owned inventory will be sold at pro-rated wholesale value of the inventory on the day of the sale. Artwork by the owner is negotiable. There is no cost for Gallery's large consignment inventory, as no payment is due on these items until the item is sold.  Owner orientation and training is included.
