i am in a bit of a sticky situation.
friend opened a graffiti/hip hop/urban boutique here in Atlanta. besides spray paint and soda only my crafts are selling. everything i have put in the store has sold.
(crochet wallets made out of plarn, resin jewelry, record bowls, and canvas)
the original agreement was he would get 20% of sales. and that was at my urging. he kept saying before the store was opened he would only take 10%. so we agreed on 20%(in writing). every time something sells he calls me and when i come to collect he short changes me. like something sold and he was like "it sold for $15 but 20% is $3, so can i just keep $5 and give u $10?" and I'm like, "we agreed on 20%"
then he goes. "but i sold it to a personal friend, she wouldn't have bought it if i didn't push it to her....." why does he think hes entitled to short change me? this has happened a few times and the problem is hes a friend of mine so its awkward.
he doesn't treat the other artist's this way! what should i do?
