How does Kickstarter work?????

How does Kickstarter work?

First, here’s a simple explanation of kickstarter: https://www.rody.com/how-does-kickstarter-work/

As far as the ornaments go, I’m funding all the expenses of getting a large quantity of ornaments made, before I make them.

I’m doing that by offering “rewards” – or …. CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!  (or other fun stuff) if people give me the money to do the ornaments.

ESSENTIALLY, I am PRESELLING the products, at a DISCOUNT to people who are PAYING BEFORE THEY ARE MADE.

So, the people that take a chance, get a really good deal on them.

If i don’t reach $12,500, i get ZERO money, and nobody’s cc gets hit.

Kickstarter is how i started my whole dinnerware line.  I raised $36000 at rodydishes.com, that was three years ago.

SOOOOOO, if you want some Christmas ornaments, or platters, or dinnerware, or note cards, or A BIG THANK YOU ($1), then you pick that reward level and put your credit card in.

Crowdfunding is very social, so my very good friends are sharing and tweeting and doing all that stuff with rodychristmas.com.  yakking it up, so to speak.

My current Coastal Christmas Ornament Kickstarter is at rodychristmas.com.

My dinnerware project from December, 2013, “Dishes with Fishes” is at rodydishes.com

The Value of ART

2016-05-26 15_optI’ve had this Lundin Kudo pear for about 10 years.  I bought it right after the death of the artist, who was a neighbor of mine and a wonderful artist and person. 

I’m selling the house, and moving a few things to our new home in Hope Town in the Bahamas.  I would not trust myself or Tropical Shipping to get it there in one piece, so I asked around and found an interested collector who took charge of my pear with love.  The value over the last 10 years did increase.  But the real value was the enjoyment I had of displaying the pear in my home over the years…. sitting next to it while watching movies and eating, having friends ooh and ahhh….  and simply having it in our home.  Now that the house is for sale, most of the items inside must go.  It’s nice to know that fine art does both give and hold its value over the years.  Thank you Lundin, and I hope the new owner of the pear enjoys it as much as I did.
