I went out today looking for garage sales because I was up early and nothing was happening online. I found a garden center that I didn’t know was there before and stopped in. I picked up a few plants and checked out. The woman at the counter and I started talking (one of my hobbies is botany) and we hit it off pretty well so I mentioned that I sell Adirondack chairs and told her I’d like to put a demonstrator there. She checked with the owner who was a little intrepid about it mainly because she didn’t want to be held responsible for any damage to the demonstrator.
I assured her that she could draw up any kind of contract she liked absolving her or any responsibility and she went for it.
I’ll give her a 20% commission for any chair I sell from there.
The good part is that I have a new pine demonstrator in my shop that I’ve been using to get some measurements off for other chairs, and to have around to – see how I did it last time-, but I’ve built enough of them to know how it’s done so I can let this one go.
The back on this one is the seven slat variety and it reclines just a bit too far, but that only makes it more comfy if you ask me.
So I think I’ll try to market them to some other garden centers around here and maybe I can get some orders.
It’s unfinished here with a coat of Charles Neil Pre Color conditioner on it drying.
