    FSG has a locked wall mounted display case to showcase our members work at the Morean Arts Center (located in St. Petersburg, FL).  You may have your items for sale or not.  The very low commission of 25% of the retail price is charged by the Morean Arts center.  FSG does not make any money on this at all.  The Morean incurs expenses with the credit card company charges and just general overhead of lighting and air conditioning and security; which why there is a commission fee.
