I totally agree if she cannot provide you the address/telephone number/ license/tax id number etc.....it might not be vailid. As a owner of a consignment boutique I understand the commitment and costs it takes to put out the product first before you get paid. It's hard to consume at first, but if you want to get your items out there there is always some kind of costs. Craft shows are costly in themselves, and yet you may make nothing in return as an example. I hope you trust your gut, thst is what it is there for. If you need or have any questions about consignment I would be glad to answer them, or at least share my policies!
