Spread it around unless you are thinking of running a booth yourself. I have pieces all over. Whenever a piece is not picked up I send it off to different consignment shops.

I sold my wares at a weekend market for three years. Booth space was affordable, I went out and bought a pop up 10x10 and a couple of folding tables, two lawn chairs and I was set!
Turns out there were quite a few shop owners cruising this market
as I was approached by seveal different people asking if I would be interested in selling my stuff in their stores.
My reply was sure! but if my stuff is good enough to sell it's good enough to buy. I never did consignments. Most were alittle taken aback by my response, but they infact bought my wares.
What they wanted to mark it up was up to them, if they got too greedy it wouldn't sell, price it right and it would.
The reality of it was they would buy five of this, ten of that, three of those. Making it big was not in my cards.
But I had fun for a coupe of years.

So far I haven't had to set up a booth. My projects get posted on a fishing board that I belong to and I have gotten several orders from other members (the custom cooler and the fishy coffee table). Also I post pics of my projects on Facebook and my wife and daughter share them with their friends. They have lots of friends who have lots of friends! :-)

Word of mouth seems to work pretty good via Facebook. One order was for the original coffee table and now several more have been ordered. Then my sister in law posted a pic and asked if I could make something for her. That thread has generated more orders.

So, I don't have time to go peddle my wares. And I am supposed to be retired. :-)
