I love working with retail shops and galleries! Contact me if you have questions about selling my handmade gifts in your shop.
My handmade items include:
Simple jewelry (post and dangle earrings, cuff bracelets, pendants on chain)
Stitch markers for knitting and crochet
Mini storage tins for small treasures
Christmas ornaments (available seasonally)
My handmade items appeal primarily to the literate, well-educated crowd with a sense of humor and a desire to be surrounded by unique, inspirational items. My product themes tend to be: travel/Colorado, knitting, books/reading/writing, and inspiration/home/family.
My jewelry and gifts regularly appear in thematic gift guides large and small such as 26 Gifts for People Who'd Rather Live Between the Pages of a Book (BuzzFeed), Great Handmade Mother's Day Gifts (Arts Business Institute), Gift Guide: The Aviatrix, 18 Perfect Products Every Writer Would Completely Love (BuzzFeed), and 20 Geeky Gifts for Mother's Day (Computerworld).
How To Order
There are several options:
You will need to set up a buyer’s account and receive approval in order to purchase through this wholesale-only website. Stockabl lists some of my starter packs, a group of items that go together if you prefer one-stop shopping, rather than choosing each item separately.
Etsy Wholesale closed during the summer 2018. If you still prefer to order through Etsy, I can set up a single custom listing for you with all your selected items. You’ll need to browse Etsy and send me an email or Etsy conversation with all the items you’d like to buy. Note: Some items on Etsy are retail only. To see only wholesale items, use this link or search “wholesale” inside my shop.
You can browse either Stockabl or Etsy and send me a list of items you’d like to buy wholesale. I will then send you an invoice to pay via PayPal.
Consignment orders are not normally accepted. I do occasionally make exceptions for museums and other special places, so feel free to contact me.
Prices and Minimum Order
Wholesale prices are 50% off full retail prices. Approved wholesale accounts must meet a $100 (US) minimum opening order. Reorders are normally $50. There is no minimum number required for individual items.
All wholesale items come packaged on cards and cellophane bags for retail sale unless otherwise requested or noted in the item description. Displays are not included, but items easily fit into boxes or may have holes punched for hanging on hooks. Certain bulky items (such as Christmas ornaments with handmade metal hooks) may come in other types of packaging or none at all. Packaging is not required.
Orders may be paid via credit card or PayPal. Payment must be paid in full before work begins on your order.
Wholesale items may not be returned, except in the case of damaged items. Contact me if your package arrives damaged within five days of receipt.
Everything ships from my studio in Fort Collins, Colorado. Shipping cost is not included in the wholesale price. The exact cost will be added to your invoice before shipping. Orders ship USPS Priority Mail unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Because my items tend to be light and small, shipping is typically minimal ($8-12) for most wholesale orders.
Please allow 1-2 weeks from the time of your order before shipment. Additional time may be needed during busy seasons (typically May/June and November/December). Feel free to inquire about my current turnaround time. In general, items that use machines (such as wood keychains that use a laser cutter) are much faster to produce and ship than those that require hand work such as painting or hand stamping.
I am available for semi-custom wholesale orders. For example, a keychain with the word “Colorado” could be modified for “Wyoming.” Custom orders may not be available during the busy holiday season.
