New This Week: Skulls, Cherries, Anchors, Mushrooms & More


I have been a busy little lady ever since I came back from Berlin! I added all of this to the shop. As always, you can find them on, DaWanda and Etsy.

I have also been doing some more work on my wholesale site. It really should be up soon now!

Does any of you girls sell on consignment? I have gotten two request for this earlier this week, but I don't really know if I should do it. Maybe I don't have enough inventory to do it. I have a lot (my Etsy shop is getting close to 200 items!), but I don't have more than one of a lot of those. What are your experiences with consignment? And how much of the profits does the shop gets to keep?


  1. Wow you have been busy! These are all so cool & I always love the way all your cute items look when displayed together! With regards to consignment, it's not something I do, but I once worked in a shop that took items on consignment. The shop kept 15% of the total sale price. I really have no idea if that's standard or not, and it was a few years ago.

  2. I have several consignment accounts. They are all 70/30 split (they get the 30%). I've just decided to no longer do consignment. It is really hard to manage, especially far away. My local account with a store is easier, but I still don't get in as much as I should.

  3. hey tizz. i don't have any experience, but there seems to be a lot of talk about consignment on the esty forums: maybe you'll find some helpful info there. :)

  4. Anchors and mushrooms and guns - oh my! Such cuteness - you HAVE been busy!

    I have found that consignment is good when you are just starting out... but once you have already gotten your name out there (such as yourself) then in my opinion it's a bit of a rip-off, time and money-wise. I never found more than a 60/40 split (40% for the shop) and the shop owners I dealt with always seemed to be a little too much on the 'demanding' side of choosing what they wanted to carry in their store - and rightly so, but I prefer to make things based on how I feel, creatively, rather than following the demands of a retail store.

  5. More cuteness! As for the consignment I*m doing 2 & i love it! The consignees that contacted me have a low rate so i keep a of over half of my sales. It*s a GREAT way to get noticed. You should try it.

  6. love those little apple rings, it's no wonder why you were featured in the newspaper

  7. Cute stuff as always!

    I do a consignment with Hey Pretty Cupcake and my experience with her has been very good. She's very timely with her payments and good with communicating with her designers. Which reminds me I need to respond to an email she sent me the other day!
