No noseyness taken, I am happy to talk about my detours in the craft business, as perhaps I will learn something helpful.

I always made everything myself, and was encouraged by the galleries to always do something new. Custom work was also a big part of my local business with the galleries. Since they had so much work all on consignment, I really never got much inventory ahead to be available for other accounts. I wasn't doing any retail shows, so I had little contact with other artists and thier business models.

When the galleries were selling really well, this worked fine, and when sales got slower, I was at a loss as to what I could do to change things.

I needed a guru, and got one. annie
