When I decided to try wholesaling, I did my research. I talked to people who wholesaled. I looked into shows and wholesaling web sites. I even took a class.
It sounded like a great idea. Sell my work directly to stores, let them do the interacting with the customers, and I get to make my art. I can do fewer art shows, stop spending so much of my time traveling and setting up and taking down my displays, and struggling with weather.
It turns out there was a lot more to selling wholesale than I knew, even with all my research. It takes a certain type of artist and art to make it in the wholesale world. At this point, I am still determining whether I am the right fit to be a successful wholesale artist. But, maybe you are the right fit.
In future blogs I will provide more insight into what I learned, the hard way, about wholesaling.
