Retail Pricing for Consignments in Going Pro Posted January 18, 2014 · Report reply you guys make money doing this? most of our galleries 50%. They work for it though and it gets your name out for customers to approach you directly which is nice because you get the commision. I say this because if a gallery finds you selling similar piece and trying to undercut them you'll never show there again. how do you pay yourself to sell a piece? are you driving to craft fairs with entrance fees? you have to recover those costs. The price to produce a piece is just a part.
