Guess you could say I opened my big mouth again. My wife had to stop by a consignment shop to pick up a gift so I wait and wait and wait. Can't stand it so go in and bang this idea hit me. Why not set up a booth for some of the turning club and share expenses? I promote it to some close by club members and got 4 or 5 interested. So I have shelving , just needs sanding and varnish. Sooooo I am doing all this work setting up and maybe this is coming together. Funny thing the lady at the shop coached us on prices as to basically set price high enough to cover rent and 15% commission , also we can always lower but not raise price (bad mojo). So now we have pricing to consider and then what to put in . My main basis for doing this is to promote the club so I have made a new club brochure. Oh and there will be two of us entering the items in store computer for inventory and label printing. Cost per month each about 15 plus total of 12 hours per month cleanup(to be split). How many of you have tried this route to sell your wares? And how well did it work?
I have never made a pen and have only seen them on line or sometimes at sales. I would think their sales would be very limited. People use their phones for nearly everything that the pen was used for. Notes, reminders, lists, voice memos and letters have been replaced by email and text. You get free pens at the dentist and in most businesses. The biggest problem with me and pens.................I can't keep them, always lose them. Can pen makers make a profit, considering supplies and paying themselves minimum wage labor cost?
