Working with a marketing rep

our local newspaper (glossy, aimed at upper income women). The rep
that I am working with wants me to let her market my jewelry at some
of the galleries in the large metropolitan area of which we are a

We haven’t discussed what her fee would be. I’m sure some of you
must use or have used reps to market their jewelry. Can you advise

Thanks so much for your help.


The rate is often 15% of wholesale prices.
