It's always flattering to have new customers who want to wholesale or consign my hats. Imagine, stores wanting to invest space and effort displaying my little hats! So when Debbie from Bella Boutique asked me to consign with her new store opening in the fall, I gave her my scary story from last year when I consigned with an Etsy seller, (She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named) and her store went bust and many of us had a devil of a time getting out items back from her, and things got really ugly. So needless to say, I prefer wholesale to consignment, but I completely understand the need for consignment with startup handmade shops. It helps so much with overhead and keeping inventory moving. And Debbie wad very professional and understanding and put me right at ease, I can't wait to see how her store progresses along, and I wish her oodles of sales for the season.
So here is what I shipped her for the first wave, and may there be many more, three cheers for Bella Boutique!
