Arts and crafts galleries display and sell a range of works of art and craft, typically produced by local artists and craft makers and those from further afield. As well as selling original works, many galleries also sell cards and prints, and some hire out the gallery space for community events and corporate functions as well as running creative workshops on a variety of arts and crafts skills. Some arts and crafts galleries also promote and sell their stock online.
