last month at the DUCF, i had the pleasure of meeting
the talented (& oh-so gracious) owners of city bird detroit.
city bird is a store, studio and gallery located in midtown detroit (the arts district).
i have not yet been, but it looks like a hip place with some really fantastic wares.
they carry their own line of Detroit-themed housewares, accessories and paper goods as well as work by more than 75 other local artists and designers.
pretty awesome, right?
know what else is pretty awesome? they will soon be carrying my jewelry! i am currently working on a small order to send their way in time for their upcoming valentine's day party. so exciting that i will finally be in a local store (and such an awesome one, at that)!
at this point, there are only two stores that carry my jewelry -- mad eagle in e. lansing & la boutique in sarthe, france. one of my goals for this year is to add substantially to this list, so this is a great start.
this will be my first experience with consignment, so i'm not sure what all to expect.
here's to hoping city bird's shoppers will take a liking to my baubles!!
do any of you have your handmade goods in brick & mortar shops? how have your
experiences been (specifically with consignment?)
