If you're a company, individual, or other
entity and are interested in selling a quantity of leather or related hardware,
fasteners, laces, fabrics, or other associated leather or craft supply
items, but you don't want to just let it all go for a small price to a
reseller, then Brettuns Village has a program that may interest you.
We accept consigned lots and sell them to our customers by the piece.
It's a very simple program that's been active since 1994 and has been used
by many manufacturers and tanneries, suppliers and jobbers, and even home
crafters who have accumulated large quantities of leather hides, scrap
pieces, and other items. Our consignment program is very simple and
reliable. The important details include the following:
You're responsible for shipping the items
to us here in Maine, and if you decide to terminate your participation
in the program before the items are all sold then you get to pay to have
remaining inventory shipped back to you.
YOU decide how much you want per square foot
or per piece/unit/pound/ then we add in our commission and fees as a percentage.
This determines the price of the item on our site. It's self-regulating.
If you set your price high, your inventory sells slowly (or not at all).
You can change your pricing at any time; we'll modify the website accordingly.
We represent the items accurately on our site.
You may tell us that 'this is the most expensive leather ever produced
in the USA' but when we open the box and find dead mice and mold in there
we'll describe it that way and the photos we use on the site will show
the average condition of the item. We will not deceive our customers
at any time for any reason. Period.
Our consignment program is intended for use
in selling job lots of leather and/or craft supplies - by this we
mean lots that get packed in large boxes or on pallets - not individual
hides or very small quantities of leather or hardware, and this program
is not for finished or semi-finished leather goods. Raw materials
- leather and hardware only.
At the end of each month we send you a tally
sheet that lists the items and quantities of your items that were sold,
and we send you a check (or electronically transfer funds if you prefer).
We do not pay out more often than monthly. At any time during the
month you can request a copy of your tally sheet; we'll gladly e-mail it
If a customer buys one of your items but decides
to return it, Brettuns Village handles the refund; we do not request money
back from you.
We keep the program simple and straight-forward.
