Success at Wholesale

Recommended Posts

If you think you can't wholesale... is it your work, or your price structure?

All to often ceramic artists underprice their works when selling locally.

 

These artists have learned how to make work that sells at the right price,

 

a price that provides them with a livable wage and a secure stable of

galleries and shops.

Here's a list of those artists who have learned how to succeed at

selling to shops and galleries. Please add more names to the list.

Whole sale work is better than simple shop work. You just have to need to avail all the stock from the company. The local shopkeeper buy all the products on a large quantity that will be more beneficial for you so that's way I think the wholesale work is more easy for you.

Robin, I think what you're trying to say is that you can "sell it" before you make it? That's probably the biggest advantage to having a wholesale part of your studio. When you retail you have to have more inventory, and physically move it several times before you actually sell the piece. When you wholesale you are filling an order... not guessing what the customer wants next!
