Frequently asked questions

How do I get the products to you?

Our preference is that you drop your products directly to the location you will be selling from. We will then take a quick count and check of what we have received, and you can sign them over to our care while we stock them in our shop.

Do you charge commission?

Moreton Bay Region Galleries and Museums charge a 25 percent commission on all consignment items stocked in our shops.

What happens at the end of the market?

All products not sold will need to be collected between Wednesday 28 December 2022 and Saturday 14 January 2023. The gallery will contact you directly should this change for any reason.

What paperwork is involved?

An email will go out to all successful applicants detailing the paperwork required to be submitted to be set up as a supplier for Council.

Successful applicants will need to fill out a supplier form if not already a supplier in the Council system. This includes copies of any public liability insurance you may have, or if you are operating without an ABN, a statement by supplier will also need to be provided.

How do I get paid?

Payments will be processed via our council team directly to your bank account in the weeks following collection of products.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

You can contact the galleries directly on Caboolture.gallery@moretonbay.qld.gov.au or call (07) 5433 2800.
