To submit a consignment item, fill out this form and send me a photo (GIF or compressed JPEG, please). Visit our Product Gallery and individual pages for guidance. The US Post Office or UPS will determine your shipping costs, so speak with them before setting your base prices.
Since everyone's suffering financial anxiety, I've been trying to focus my creative juices on useful items that serve multiple purposes. Another idea is to sell a pattern, recipe or building plan. For instance, if you build birdhouses, you might try selling the "blueprint" as a separate item to do-it-yourselfers.
If you have questions about preparing your photos, give me a holler. It can be confusing if you're not used to making them web-ready.
If necessary, I'll tweak your photos for presentation's sake and then assign them a product code. The code will begin with the initials of your name. (For instance, my first submission is #LB001.) When a customer selects your item for purchase, I'll notify you via email unless we can set up Pay Pal to do it automatically.
After your item is received by your customer, Cottage Works will remit your payment less a handling fee negotiable before the sale. (I'd rather send all payments on a specified date but don't hesitate to let me know if you have a special need.) All transactions are secured by a Comodo Dedicated Secure Certificate and PayPal.
Instead of renting a Main Street storefront or hassling with the cost of creating & maintaining your own website, you can , sell your goods from a CottageWorks window.
Cottage Works receives no payment unless you sell an item and our "hosting" percentage is negotiable when you submit your item.
Time's awasting! Strike up the muses!
