Here's what I do - I sell the stuff to the store person at a discount
(about 20% off my already reasonable prices) and tell them that they
have one whole year to return it for a full refund if it doesn't sell.
Good idea, Carol.
I do something similar. I have my jewellery on consignment at some places
and sell outright to some other of my ‘gallery’ outlets - at a small
discount. I assume they’ll be adding 100% so they get 50% off retail.
Re the discount, I figured that as they are paying upfront and I have the
use of the money right away I needed to persuade them to buy this way.
I have enough trouble of my own keeping track of my stock held at
consignment galleries that when I send off a shipment that’s going to be
fully paid for in the next few weeks I heave a sigh of relief.
Like you I do have a policy of accepting returns, which I credit with
newer work, but I never thought of stipulating a year time limit. Great
idea. Thanks. I’ll add this to what I do.
