ScrollSaw Information and Resources #16: Going to do the Consignment Store

10-13-2011 04:09 AM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #15: Consignments Stores - Are They Worth It?

10-08-2011 02:53 AM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...

Here is the sketchup of the dining table and chairs I am currently building. The wood is QSWO with walnut pegs. The chairs are glued up, and ready for corner braces and pegs. The table should go quickly compared to the chairs. One chair has almost as many parts as the whole table. Cheers and happy woodworking!

So for the past few weeks I’ve been working on a sideboard bar cabinet. Like so many of us on here, I am drawn to the Arts and Crafts style. The idea of deriving beauty from simplicity, the honesty of good joinery, and a reliance on solid materials and skilled craftsmanship really appeals to me. I’m about 2 or 3 weeks away from completion I would say, and when it’s done I’ll be posting a full build blog with pictures of every step of the way. For now though, here ar...
