I have been asked to put my jewlery in an Art Gallery. Up until this point, I have been very hesitant to take this step, but I think I am ready! (and this gallery is amazing and cool, and I'd love to be a part of it!!)
So now I am making a mental checklist of things I need to ask, and things I need to do.
I have the contract, so I know the rules, agreement, and how the money is split.
Here are some good quesitons to ask before going into something like this:
1. What is the space like, what kind of displays will my jewelry be on? (so you know how to package it)
2. What is the inventory system, and do I do it, or do you?
3. What price range are they looking for? And what is target price range, or range that sells the best?
4. Does stock need to be rotated?
Then there is my jewelry. Should I have fancier packaging?
I know that hand written price needs to go away!
What kind of variety should I offer?
I think I am leaning towards a lot of earrings and tribal pendants, with hints of my traditional chunky pieces.
Anyhow- its all very very exciting, and I can't wait to get started preparing for this new journey!
Here is a link to the Gallery's website, The Copper Frog- I am so in love with it, and can't wait to get there in person and check out all this amazing art.
So, any suggestions guys? What did I miss?
