Things have been nuts lately around the shop. I’ve had several wholesale orders (when it rains, it pours), the last one had me working full out for 3 weeks to get it all prepared. At first I had trouble with wholesale as I end up selling my products at a significant discount, however when you factor in the time saved not having to go to craft sales, it evens out. It’s also nice that you know exactly what and how much of each product to order. I don’t wholesale all my stuff as some of it has such a low profit margin that I can’t really lower the price any further.
Coming up in November, I’m scheduled to sell at the Gowling Christmas Craft Sale. It’s a new sale this year with lots of vendors. Earlier in the month I’ll also be selling on the Saturday of the very popular Handmade Harvest in Almonte. This sale attracts thousands of customers each year from all over the Ottawa Valley.
I’m still applying for a couple other shows before Christmas, but will keep you posted on where you can grab my products! Next week I’ll have all the stores across Canada currently stocking my work.
