Wholesale and consignment pricing? - 10 replies
It looks like I am going to pick up some specialty retailers to sell my stuff. I am looking for advice on how to adjust my prices? Because I am trying to maximize my prices when I sell I think I charge about what the market will bear. If this is true, the retails will charge about what I charge right?

My bench is a very basic 2×5 with 3/4 maple ply top on a frame of 2×4s with 2×4 legs and a second 2×4 frame about halfway down. All held together with drywall screws.
