1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Craft worker cooperative on: November 26, 2012 05:10:44 PM
Im in the formative stages of setting up a workers cooperative/monthly gallery for crafters in my local area. I have a venue I want to use for a monthly market and a plan to have people signing up, dropping their stuff off and someone else doing the selling. I'm putting out feelers to see if I have enough able bodies to run as a coop or busy crafters who want a gallery style service but without gallery level commission or who are starting out and not yet ready for a gallery.

This has come from running a yearly market and people not being available on the day but wanting a stall, people enjoying the crafting but not the admin or the marketing and mostly from people not enjoying being on the sales frontline.

I'd be really interested to hear people views on what would work for them, what has and hasn't worked for them and some feelings about commission based sales

Looking forward to hearing from you
Kole
