We have a local coffee shop that sells odds and ends. I have a friend that takes his cutting boards to them and when they sell, they get part of the commission. He goes in once a month, drops off some new boards and picks up some cash from whatever sold the previous month. He has one small section of a table, so if nothing sells, then he doesn’t have room to add more. He also has his business cards by it and has had a few calls from people asking for custom boards.
I think he has some of his boards in a few of the other antique stores up and down main street. Most antique stores want you to rent an entire stall, but some have small display cabinets they rent out separately.
I, personally, don’t have anything I sell. I don’t have enough time to get in there and make enough to make it worth it. I have done one-off things for friends and family that have asked. I almost took on a gig with a friend that is a realtor. They were wanting me to make them custom coasters for them to leave in houses that their clients bought.
Oh, and our local schools have ‘fall festivals’ and other events where people can rent a table to sell stuff. The money from the rent goes back into the school. You might not sell anything, but you might run into someone that can help find an avenue for getting more clients.
