"I have no idea why this post popped into my mind while taking a shower after yoga class, but here is what I came up with for fine craft. In my case it is leather, I’m 75 and nowhere ready to throw in the towel. There are outfits advertising in…"

"Put all of your work on a flash or thumb drive.  Rent a storage shed.  Your work is Beautiful and I would not give it away or destroy it. "

Sheri Kowalski replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"Awww! Thanks Chris! That is so sweet of you and funny! Damn! I needed to hear it too. When you don't find success financially doing what you love, you start to doubt your skills. You think, are my friends just being nice when they complement my…"

Chris Fedderson replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"Hello Sheri, I just looked at your web site.  All I can say is, "Damn!!".  I, too, am a photographer (close-up nature) and now I see that you really do have "it". Regardless of what you decide to do with your inventory…"

Judy Jones replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"I know exactly where you are coming from on this issue! There is a point where all the hassle of trying to sell at shows takes a toll especially when the financial return no longer makes it viable to do. If you are like me, the show artist community…"

Loc Tran replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"The other thing you could do but would take a little effort is find a few galleries or gift shops (even coffee shops) that have wall space that would be willing to take your work on consignment. You check back with them every 3 to 6 months and split…"

Sheri Kowalski replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"Thank you Judy. Getting back to having fun with art sounds like a joy. Isn't that how we all begin? I wish I had a studio to do a sale. I used to live in Detroit and have a big friend base down there, but now live in northern Michigan with very…"

Sheri Kowalski replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"Thank you for your kind and thoughtful answer Robert. I appreciate that!!! I did see the acrylic coming in the last year I did my booth. I also saw the metal as an option when I first started, but felt I liked the softer more organic/painterly feel…"

Robert Wallis replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"I've seen your work and it is magnificent. The only thing I can suggest is that you may have been behind the curve on the choice of presentation. I've just about eliminated gallery wrapped canvases except for a few panoramas that are in…"

Jeri Vitello replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"There are two studio "clearance" sales that encourage artists to bring their work to sell at discount prices.  One is in Kalamazoo, MI. The other is in Columbus, OH sponsored by ODC.  If my memory serves there might be a third…"

Judy Jones replied to Sheri Kowalski's discussion What do you do with your inventory after you throw in the towel?
"Sheri, I have the same issue. My inventory consists of handwoven wearables. I was on the show circuit for over 25 years. Due to low financial gain along with repetitive motion problems from doing shows, I decided a few years ago to not do shows…"
