Anyone near McDaniel College , Westminster Maryland looking for one?, They are selling theirs . I know I can't post sale info here but it seems reasonable.

I don't make many molds and have never tried using silicone caulk, anyone try this with success? I thought it had possibilities.

Bouncing off Rebekah’s topic of First Show I’m wondering what peoples go to display props are? Out of all the things I’ve tried my favourite is the Flexi Stand from Axner. They work on large pieces, are adjustable and unobtrusive. Anybody else have anything that really works?

Co-Op

11 September 2014 - 04:32 PM

A co-op that I have been in since dec of last year on a consignment basis (I keep 60%) has offered a partnership to me. There are a total of 10 partners, co-op has been around since 2003. My sales have been okay but not over the top great there.

 

On the plus side I would then keep 100% of sales. 

 

On the negative side I would have to give up to give up 2 or 3 days a month, more in Dec, to work shifts there plus the responsibility of one extra duty (facebook for example) which would eat up more time. The rent seems okay. 

 

This is their initial comments:

 

- Buy-in share is $ 750, half of which will be returned to you when you leave
- Monthly rent is $ 96
- All other costs are covered by consignment income
- Approx. 2.5 shifts per month at the gallery except for December when we are open every day until Dec. 24th
- Take home 100% of your own sales
- One evening partner meeting per month
- Each partner takes on one area of responsibility, i.e. I am responsible for the consignees, one person does the accounting, one covers Facebook etc.
 
I would love to hear other peoples opinion on this, I'm leaning towards saying no.
