Tiny Showcase


Little art collections

Keeping tabs on the art world is tough and time-consuming. Being a collector is tougher, and downright expensive. This site does all the work for you and allows you to amass your own hip, limited edition prints for cheap. Sign up for the newsletter and once a week you’ll receive a heads up about the artist whose work will be available later that day for $20 a pop. They usually make only 100-200 prints and it’s first come, first serve. The first piece I bought on a lark sold out in less than 15 minutes! I discovered the site nine months ago when a friend gave me a gift certificate. Although I’ve already spent my gifted wad, I still check the newsletter religiously, almost obsessively. Stumbling on amazing art(ists) is wonderful. Decorating our home with little, unique prints is very satisfying. Part of every purchase is donated to a charity chosen by the artist, too.Sample artwork:
