Best way of selling your made furniture

Rob D

Recommended Posts

Last year in September I did some tables for a cafe in Brockenhurst, Hants. Some they bought off me and some are there to be used by customers and are also for sale.


They get 10% commission on all the furniture and 20% on wall hangings. It's an arrangement that works well as they are open 6 days of the week and people can see and use the furniture in situ.


By far the best sellers are the coffee tables and medium size wall hangings as these fit in peoples cars.


I've sold about 12 items through them now and compared to doing anything else have found it the least hassal way of selling things. As soon as a coffee table sells I just drop another one up there.

Looks really good Billy. I have a website with quite a bit of stuff on... needs updating :blushing: but I've found by far I've had more referrals and interest from this cafe than anything else I have done.

Cheers John - yep there's a few bits and pieces of that oak still about!! Amazing what you can get off the one tree.

Finally a few pics for another smaller guest house.


Solid oak bench needed a lot of resin to stablise the soft areas on it...


These are again for sale even though at a smaller place there will be less people seeing them. Good thing is it gets them out from under your feet!


Again they only take 10% commission and are happy to have them there.
