eutectic handcrafted jewelry

It's hard to not sell your wares online, especially if you're a new artist or you're in a VERY competitive field (like jewelry). I sell online trough my own site and at other sites, but I do not sell ANYWHERE that would price my items so low as to undercut anyone else. The prices I post on my retail site are just that -- retail. The prices I dictate to most online stores are the same as I give to consignment boutiques, galleries, and wholesalers.

I do not think that retail owners should reject online sellers hands down. While I wish that I had enough wholesale account to stop selling online, I don't. And I don't realistically expect to have those accounts in the near future. If I ever get to that point, maybe I'll stop selling online...but I have to get my name out and make money in the mean time!

Drop ship online

I recently came across your blog and have been reading about drop ship online. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
