Wow that is really inspirational. I was determined to be in shops putting myself out there by the end of February. its now March 4th and I still have not done it. I have my catlogue ready to go, lots of product made up and yet I am stuck. Need to get catalog printed and figure out how to bind it, thinking maybe I should do up some fliers, cant really leave samples though, because they cost so much...
I really need to get that inspiration again. I have debated back and forth on wither or not to make appointments. I have heard the advice not to because they can shoot you down before you even get your foot in the door. I have heard that going in and inquiring then setting an appointment while there is best but I don't know if I agree or not.
I should probably just push myself out there and go and do it then learn from my mistakes. You have motivated me to push myself to do this.

This was such a fun and inspiring journey to read about! I've always wanted to do something like this but have chickened out of actually pushing myself to do it. I like the idea of incorporating it into a vacation. Thanks again and I hope this leads to lots of new, long lasting connections1


Thanks for sharing! I'm in Salem so I was happy to find you. I (well technically, my husband) sold my first wholesale account the other day. I'm going to try for more...the Coast is definitely a great place to start. Good luck!

Thanks so much for logging your experience! I am planning a wholesale blitz around Portland and really appreciate the tips. Now I have a ton of food for thought and will definitely put together a wholesale flier (how did I not think of that?!?). Keep up the good work, and I hope you hear from more of those shops soon!

Thank you so much for posting this! It's been hugely inspiring for me.

I'd really love to take the wholesale plunge (or at least *attempt* to plunge), but getting together enough money to buy supplies to create a large inventory is my biggest hurdle. I do lots of little craft shows & get caught in the cycle of > make enough for that show > sell some > buy more supplies > pay next table fee. *sigh*

Buying supplies in bulk is so much cheaper too. One day!
