1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Crafters Who Sell - What is Your Opinion on Consignment Ratios? on: January 14, 2005 07:32:39 PM
As a store and Crafter I would suggest the 50/50 split.
We have just completed our first 1yr and 1/2 with a 60/40 split and it is tough to cover expenses..and we spend VERY little. We do not even take a salary.
What we have found in the transition is that the artists that make better quality work will stick around with a 50/50 split.
Also, you will have new costs aquiring customers..that extra 10% might make a huge difference.
Good Luck...If you have any questions, I'm glad to help.

Something else to keep in mind is Cansino gift shops buy low and sell high. So, you may want to consider that when quoting them pricing. They generally mark it up 300% which is fine since they have a captive audience.
Good Luck.

What about making your screen out of two vintage doors..or even old screen doors. They can be easily painted and then you can even hang your things off hooks and it wouldn't look cluttered. Or maybe two pieces of peg board attachedto make A frame..like a sandwich board. One last suggestion is a Wine display rack they are usually wood and have like 4 open shelves/drawers  but doesn't weigh alot...
