Does anyone sell one-of-a-kinds at wholesale ‘order only’ shows? I
was wondering what the buyer views at the show.
If you sell production pieces, you bring samples. The buyer chooses
from the samples and they know exactly what they are getting in their
order when they receive it. But if you’re selling one-of-a-kinds,
what are you bringing to the show? Are you bringing a large inventory
and the buyer buys the piece that is there, and then you put their
name on it and ship it to them after the show? Or are you showing
samples of your style of work?
I do know that buyers will order consignment based on viewing
samples - they say: send me x amount in this general style and price
range. But if they are buying outright, does it work the same way?
