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 like stands, pegs and hooks. All you do is make the items, tag them with your price and provide the shop owner a running inventory list.
Once per month you would get a check for all items sold minus a 15% shop fee. The shop will pay all sales taxes. Several times per year the shop will purchase spcae in a local Arts and Crafts show and by lottery drawing you could be invited – FREE. The shop does all advertising and staffing of the shop.
This seems like a winning arrangement however I would like input for wiser ones that I. What do you think.
Thanks for any input.
