I'm taking the plunge

I was asked about a week ago if I would be willing to consign my cards. After the initial excitement that, woohoo! someone wants my cards!!, I was a little taken back. There seemed to be numerous threads in the forums that stated different horror stories about consigning their craft.

Well, after asking a bunch of questions, and even finding another Etsy seller that was also going to get into the same deal, talking it over with my hubby, I decided to give it a whirl!

The store name is Mocomarket, and it's in Madison, WI. The owner, Megan Ramey, is going to be on TV talking about her new idea for the store next week. She is devoting part of the store to Etsy sellers. Just another way the word will get out about Etsy! This afternoon I am going to send them 10 cards. I am pretty excited about the deal as of right now! I will keep you posted on how things work out for me!

Also, I wanted to tell you about my favorite customer! christydekoning...find her here at Etsy
http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5541697 ...bought a few cards from me, gave me raving reviews, helped me out with various other things, has now decided to write my shop name and URL on the back of the cards she bought before sending them out to her friends and family! She does gorgous watercolor paintings...so check out her shop! She is a truely wonderful person.

I have experienced some sem-horrors with consignment myself BUT I'd probably still try again. You never know when it can be THE big break! Good Luck!♥
