Artisan Cooperative Workspace – Is There Any Advantage Beyond Exposure?

Artisan Cooperative Workspace - Is There Any Advantage Beyond Exposure?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I recently joined a new artisan cooperative workspace owned by the niece of a former employer.

About a month after the opening, she had a designers meeting and told us we each have to pay $125 per quarter in addition to her 25% commission on each sale and fees for table space at local events.

I paid the $125 for the Fall quarter, hoping I would more than break even with holiday events coming up.

Now I’m not so sure there is any advantage beyond exposure.

I would really like to know what the Community think about this. Thanks!
