I'm still thinking through my own display options in preparation for
maybe doing some shows and art fairs next summer. Maybe.
My feeling about this card, as it's intended for items going to shops,
is that it needs to be space conscious: Space in a shop is at a
premium, I think. So I wanted it to take up as little room as
possible. Initially, I figure I'll just plunk an assortment of these
in a little basket that would sit on a shelf or counter. If the shop
owner decides to hang them for better visibility, the hole is already
in the card. And, hopefully, more on-center than the hole I punched in
that example. LOL!
As I think about it, a basket by the register may not be such a bad
I've decided I want to get $10 a piece for these small cavity vessels.
No less. I kind of think that's a little low, but I would really like
to hear your thoughts on this, as well. That $10 would be my wholesale
price to a shop. No consignments.
I have one listed on my website for $10, as that's the least I can
take for them, time/labor/materials wise. Since that's my wholesale
price, should I be asking more (retail) when I sell them myself?
Sorry for the rambling. Just thinking out loud here. To hear me mumble
like this, it must sound like I've never done this before. I have, but
with much higher priced things (teddy bears) and back then I never,
EVER sold wholesale. Even when I sold to shops.
