Think shopping, think creative, think library – because this summer Sunshine Coast Council is helping young people set up shop in libraries.

Y-shops are original and new to libraries on the Coast. Y-shops are run solely by young people, aged between 10 and 25 years with an interest in selling their original creative work.

Shopping in a Y-shop helps young adults to develop entrepreneurial skills, build confidence, practice customer service and aid them in starting their very own business.

Manager Library and Gallery Services, Ross Duncan said it is a great opportunity for young people on the Coast.

“We wanted to help the creative talent in the region get their goods into the public realm,” Mr Duncan said.

“The diversity and creativeness shown by participating vendors has been outstanding.

“Y-shops are a great opportunity for young artists to test the response of customers to their goods while developing basic business skills for managing a business.”

On sale will be original merchandise ranging from plush monster toys, mosaic platters and glasses, dream catchers, woven and beaded jewellery, pet ‘bling’ collars, handmade cards, fairy twig furniture and artwork.

Y-shops are open Saturday mornings in selected Sunshine Coast Libraries from 9.30am to 11.30am over the summer holidays.
