This past week I took the plunge at having pieces in an artist consignment store. Two and a half Women is a cute, eclectic shop located about 40 miles south of me in Elizabeth City, NC.
I belong to several Facebook groups related to beading, crafting and jewelry creating. These groups are a wonderful source of inspiration and and information. Another gal in the groups is from the Hampton Roads area and had posted about placing some things there. I was curious so I decided to check it out.
I found their page on Facebook and I emailed one of the owners. She replied back quickly and willingly sent me a copy of the agreements which I found to be simple and straight forward and fair, with a 3 month initial period. After talking with my DH I decided to give it a try. I made an appointment to meet with the owner, Lisa, the following Monday.
At my DH's suggestion we drove down on Saturday to check out the shop and drop off my contract in advance. The shop, which is in an antique building in historic downtown was very well done with TONS of beautiful art and accessories. I looked around at everything~and introduced myself, spoke with the owners (Lisa & Tina) and confirmed my return on Monday.
DH took me to lunch and we made the short drive back home.
