These are gallery commissions.
We are now selling pieces directly to galleries so a lot of our stuff is non-consignment which we really like.
What's funny is even at these high rates, we get a LOT more for our pieces than we ever got in Kansas City.
The market here is so much different with entire U.S. and international clients. Our work is all over the world now.

Can I mail some of my stuff to you and they can sell them?
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Arlin, lots of people suggest that, but the galleries require the pieces to be made in Hawaii from local woods. It also takes a bit of work to get in and stay in, but once you're in, you can make money.

Jake was here this past weekend and I got him on the computer to read your replies. He was more than interested in your answers. He is happy that 2 of his pieces were sold and  he went in and replaced them. He came on over here I think to get into my stash. Don't mind he is good people and disabled to get around much.
