Hi:
I am a textile artist and my husband a potter. We have just sold a retail business in another industry and want to work at our craft "widgets" (as John so irreverently calls them!), but don't want the hassle of wholesale show selling. Have any of you tried running your own gallery, selling other peoples work in addition to your own?
Is this a complete fantasy that two people could run a store and produce their own work concurently without being completely overwhelmed? Could you just as well run a store in the time it takes you to sell at the shows and then fill subsequent orders? I'd be interested in any experience on the subject and/or sheer speculation!
