The Consignment Venture

heart magnets
I have my magnets in a small local shop here in NC. It is called Cute Buttons and it is.... cute. My little magnets are there under consignment, so I didn't really have any expectations for how they would sell. To my surprise, they have done very well. 20+ sets sold over the holidays. I made them, dropped them off and picked up a check. It was nice. I know that consignment can be a shady game, but my experience so far has been great and I am looking for more shops to consign with. I have had wholesale purchases and I am hooked up with a drop shipper, but I have to say I like the consignment thing the best. I make 60% which is better than wholesale, and the shop owner has asked for more magnets already. Everyone is winning here and I am a happy little crafter. Now... if I can just find 5-10 more shops to hook up with :)


  1. I am not sure how I found your site even but I wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with it all. I do make some magnets but am totally in awe of what you do. I hope that you continue to do well in your business adventure so you can quit your day job. I will bookmark your site as I hope to come back again and see about getting some of your magnets. Keep up the good work my dear.

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words, Jacqueline! You made my day!
