Consignment Suggestions?

I was just over at our local gift store, ‘The Treasure Nook’ and, long story short, after talking with the owner, am going to try my hand at consigning my photos there!

Oooooh! I’m going to try to sell my work! How crazy is that?! Now I need to figure out which ones to try, and what sizes, and where to get frames, and….. oh! I’ve got my work cut out for me! LOL

I know this is ‘old hat’ for some of you that have been doing this kind of thing for years, so I wonder if you have any general or specific input for me.

What are some things I should be aware of in consigning?
Are there things to avoid?
Do you put any information on the back of the photo (like a way to contact you, etc.)?
Do you sign your work (and if so, what kind of pen/marker do you use)?

I’ll stop before I overwhelm you. : ) But if you have any suggestions, I’m certainly open to hearing them! Don’t feel you have to address every question – any ideas are accepted!
