THINGS TO NOTE
We are committed to holding space for youth (21 & under), folks living with a disability, those who identify as BIPOC, or 2SLGBTQIA+. We recognize there are barriers to creating for a living and would be happy to work collaboratively to find ways to help your businesses grow. Please self identify if you feel comfortable, and share barriers or challenges to retail readiness that you may face.
To cover our operating costs, our ideal wholesale pricing is 50/50. Our rent and utilities, packaging, staff costs, breakage & loss & payment processing fees have continued to increase and this pricing allows us to cover these expenses, continue our community giving, and be adaptable to the continued changes. If a 50/50 split is realistically not possible for your business please explain in your application.
Goods That Aren't The Right Fit:
- Fine Art & Photography, including original artwork of any size.
- Jewellery priced above $45
- Adult Clothing & All Screen Printed Clothing
- Non-Medical Face Masks
- Furniture and large wall decor pieces (over 16")
*We are often near or at capacity for art prints, greeting cards & candles!
Still not sure about wholesale? Just hearing the word often scares people off, we understand that! It is more straightforward than consignment – you are paid upfront for goods rather than waiting until they’ve sold. With the volume of businesses we work with, supporting our staff, two tiny humans and an online storefront, consignment takes more energy and time than we have to give. Please review our Maker Guide (above) and reach out with any questions!
Maker Meet Ups: We're planning to partner with community organizers to bring these back in a bigger (and more consistent) way! Sign up for our Maker newsletter to keep in the loop - we share resources, meet up dates and more!
