Yes it is consignment like, but I’m not talking consignment stores. I’m talking regular retail stores. My plan is I will tell them what I want for the item and they can basically sell it for whatever they want. And if they agree then we do the deal. And I expect that I’d take the loss in the event the item was stolen. That’s part of the risk of doing business. But I’m not going to drop off $5k in product at one place either. We are just talking a few hundren bucks at a time.

And also when dealing with stores you don’t just have to focus on independant stores. Many managers at chain outfits are allowed to buy and sell locally produced merchandise. Even a Walmart Store manager is allowed to buy local merchandise and put it on the shelf, however, you probably won’t like the prices you would get from Walmart.
