Perhaps you’re an artist who has placed some paintings with a gallery for sale. Or maybe you design enamelware, or create jewelry, or manufacture handmade books, and you’ve left several items with a handicrafts shop on consignment. You’ve put labels on each item stating that it belongs to you, and not to the shop or gallery. The owner of the shop or gallery has promised to pay you a percentage of the sale price of each item sold. You have a written consignment agreement. You’re OK, right?
Not so. Did you know that if the shop or gallery goes bankrupt, you’ll probably never see those items again?
