“Yea it really isn’t the best deal for me unless they 100% guarantee that my pieces will sell and I have that in writing”

Do you have the time and resources to fight should they not pay? Can you wait 30,60,90 days to get paid. They won’t pay you until they get paid.

“But in reality there is never that guarantee. I know its kind of a crap scenario for me, but I am trying to figure out some way to make it beneficial. Right now my business is starving for work, so I have to consider every opportunity. What do you think would be a good solution besides walking away from it all together?”

We’ve all been there. In the end it’s your call and a gamble with the odds stacked in the builders favor The pros is you get some advertising to an unqualified market. If it doesn’t work out you are left holding all the cards and if it fails will add to your stress. Yes you get your wares back but you’ll be motivated to sell. Which will mean selling at a discount continuing to undercut your own price

“for items to fit a specific space”

If that’s the case then I’d propose something that is built in which you build and install and bill as a sub.
