In ALL cases, we charge no commission on sales. What you make goes right into your pocket!

About the cubes

Our spaces are divided into glass cube display cabinets, clothing racks, shelves, slatwalls, and visual art spaces which are all available for local makers to rent and fill with their handmade products.

At in.cube8r we believe you should be able to exhibit what you like without paying any comission on sales, so our spaces are 100% commission free.

Each store has different pricing depending on fixed costs (rent, wages etc) involved in that location.

Cubes are released seasonally and are subject to availability.
