Extremely excited – had to share the picture of my first piece to go to a retail store. This is a small boutique that specializes in architectural pieces and antiques. I reached out to ask if they would be interested in displaying one of my Farm Tables – so excited that they said yes. Currently up for sale for 900 dollars. I absolutely love the way they decorated around the table. Sadly, moments before this picture was taken a couple purchased 25% of the items around and under the table.
Just need a buyer with a keen eye for style now!
I’m dying to hear everyone else’s experiences with retail stores. Has anyone had luck building a relationship or brand this way? Anything I should be on the look out for?
So far its been on site for a little over a week. Lots of interest, but mainly people who want custom pieces built for their specific design interest. Its difficult trying to explain that Restoration Hardware prices are high, but my prices would be even higher because I don’t have cheap labor and an assembly line. Custom = $$$$
I’m hoping to break away from the Craigslist crowd by selling in retail stores. Here’s to hoping that the “will you take 100 dollars for the table you listed for 1250” will be ending soon!
