« Part 4: A bit of feedback and a photo! Part 5 of Trying out the Consignment Route series Part 6: Restocking Day at the Painted Lady! »

So, it’s been 43 days since the last blog on this topic as well as around 30 days since I had any words from the shop.

The lack of communication really didn’t bother me at all since I assumed that I had no sales and I would shortly be going back to the shop, packing up my stuff and writing off the entire experience as a “lesson learned” with no money lost by anyone.

Not so fast. I finally got an email from one of the owners saying that business is “picking up this month” and two of my works sold in the last couple of weeks. :-)

She is getting more excited because she is receiving a lot of positive comments on my works as well – cool!

We might have to drop prices just a few bucks as I really believe that things are overpriced to enable both me and the shop to profit as much as we desired. She, however, still wants to wait a bit. Again, no big deal.

I’m just happy that I had some sales! Also, she is eager to continue to show/sell my works. Cool!

That’s great news Bob! I think it is really a positive response for the first month. Your work is really good and summer is just starting to get rolling with the last of the schools getting out only a couple of weeks ago. I am happy for you. I hope you get what you deserve for your time and expertise. Keep us posted!
