(Buyers Market of American Craft - a wholesale trade show, Philadelphia PA)

When it comes the things you make, does this sound like you?
  • Your friends are always telling you that you should sell your work to “this store” or “that store”.
  • When wearing your work around town, people stop to ask, “Where did you get that amazing piece?”
  • You want to quit your day job and know that wholesaling is one way to do it but have no idea how to set up your business for wholesale or what to do next.
  • Perhaps you’ve even considered applying for the upcoming Handmade Happy Hour Seattle Wholesale event and decided that you’re not quite ready to participate.
So what do you do to get your business ready for wholesale?

Come to the Get Ready to Wholesale Workshop and we’ll help you get there!

6532 Phinney Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98103

Marlo M., organizer of etsyRAIN and arts business consultant at IMakeCuteStuff.com and Andrea Porter, former owner of Blue Bottle Gallery and current co-organizer of the upcoming craft conference, SchoolHouseCraft.com will help you navigate the final steps you need to take to be really ready to wholesale your work.

In the first part of class, we’ll talk about the important stuff including creating a great line sheet, the benefits of online catalogs, pricing your work, doing trade shows as well as finding and working with buyers. The last half of class will be dedicated to reviewing your products, answering your questions and giving you direct advice about your line and how to move it toward wholesaling.

Bring with you to class:
  • A few samples of your work
