Consignment Shop Work — 9 Comments

  1. Very interesting and clearly explained. Thank you for writing this post because this info is rarely discussed. Galleries in Austin ask for 60% (!!) and that’s not funny! One of the hardest things I suppose is to price the work and to really get what you deserve. Thanks.

    Hey, ae you okay? Heard you are experiencing snow storms. Keep warm and stay creative 🙂

  2. Also something I ran into (not selling artwork, but honey my bees made) is that on consignment your product sits there until it sells. It is not at your disposal and if you had a chance to sell it you couldn’t. Like you I dislike it.

  3. Good for you for making your art commercial, as I am told it is a very difficult thng to do. You seem to be a canny business woman, and make sure you get the best prices!

  4. Wow. I had no idea. This is good information to know, more for me as a buyer than as a seller currently. It makes you more aware of the struggles — and not just in making art — that artists go through.

  5. Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative and clear response to my query. It gives me some perspective on the topic, but bottom line is I would still rather sell wholesale, especially for $4 greeting cards.

  6. Hi Neda, Wow! 60% that is very steep! It is a hard thing to figure out – because you also want to price things so they will sell – but it is worth your while. Thank you for the encouragement!

    Hi Sandra, thank you for saying so!! I am glad to have people enjoy!

    Hi Bobbie, I didn’t know you sell honey! But, yes, that would be the same thing. Also, with honey, there may be a shelf life. Luckily I use archival materials so I think they should be fine.

    Hi Beverly, Thank you so so much for your encouragement!! I am glad you think I am a canny business woman. I know I try hard! If I can sell my work many times over, then it will financially work for me – and I think it also enhances people who own my artwork in various forms.

    Hi Debi, Thank you so much for your comment … it really lifts me up!

    Hi Sue, thank YOU for asking the question! I still want to ask you about that … with wholesale you get $2 per card, right? But you see that as a good deal?

    Hi Nicola, thank you for your comment!!

    Thank you!
