finding independent sales reps

Hi all
I am a gift and toy designer. I have an agreement with a local laser cutter to manufacture picture frames designs for me. Everything is going well , except placing orders. I know I will need a sales rep to help me sell this product.
Problem is, I am too small an start up to get any real interest.

Does anyone have any advice or experience they can share for a struggling
designer pushing their own products? I have no hang ups about comission fees but drumming up interest from specialty store buyers are tougher than I thought.


probably a coincidence … there used to be a Galoob toy designer in Ventura, California… are you He/She?

Have you considered showing at the California Gift Show (or another show)? You’ll get plenty of contact with retailers and reps.
