I’m in a situation where my ability to travel to do shows or market
myself personally is limited by being on my own with two kids. I was
talking to a textile artist friend who has recently hooked up with
her old sales rep. I’m thinking this might be a way for me to go
with my jewelry, but I’m not sure how to find a good, reputable rep
who takes a reasonable fee. I’ve had umpteen emails from supposed
companies that ‘want to sell my stuff in their
stores/websites/through tv shop sales etc’, but they’ve all turned
out to be questionable or scams. Also, my jewelry is not quite
mainstream…it’s more niche (filigree), so I’m leaning a bit toward
the bridal industry as one of my main markets.
Any suggestions or even recommendations would be appreciated.
