Hey, what,s goin on I Was selling my stuff on Madison ave a few
saturdays ago–I carve different woods, acrylic and wax for silver.
It is always entertaining to see all these wealthy women, that are
shopping at Gucci, Pucci and every other top clothing and jewelry
store, come up to me(at least some of them do) and rave about how
great my stuff is, but are usually on a hunt for real merchandise,
and rarely buy from me.
Anyway, a women came up and said,“you only sell on the street?” And
I said, “Why, do you have any leads for me to sell elsewhere?” So
she gave me her card and said to call her. She has an exclusive
showroom in prime garment district territory. I went there, showed
my stuff, and she wants me in there. For one thing, she is the
ditributor of Me and Ro jewelry,which is probably the top fashion
jewelry in manhattan right now, if you follow that sort of thing.
(some of it is allright, I guess as fashion jewelry goes). She was
going on about it, and it told her that I didn’t like it all that
MY QUESTION Does anyone out there know how a showroom makes money?
Does she get my price, mark it up some, then sell it to a store who
we all know marks up 100%,or does she mark up double and then the
store goes double also?
Our “pricing” appt. was blown off until after the new year, but I
told her that I would like to get it all done in time for show week,
which starts 1/7, because all my samples are made. I just have to
be able to handle the orders, if and when they come!
Just trying to get some reference knoweledge, before hand, if anyone
