I love working with retail shops and galleries! Please send me inquiries about the minimum opening purchase requirements for brick-and-mortar shops. Orders may take 2-4 weeks, depending upon the order size and time of year. Orders ship via U.S. Priority Mail. I'm a member of Etsy Wholesale.
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. They 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).
Here are some examples of the types of handmade items available for wholesale purchases (exact items may vary):
These fun key chains include a combination of words and images. Key chains are all hand stamped using hammers and steel stamps, rather than engraved by machine. This hand process means that there will be some slight variations with the letter placement and alignment. I use a variety of metals, including aluminum, copper, steel, and brass. (The photo above shows my aluminum stamped key chains.) All key chains come with high quality stainless steel key rings that are sturdy and will not rust. Retail Packaging: Key chains are packaged individually to reduce scratches while displayed in a retail location. The sealed packages may be placed in a basket or hung on a display using the hole at the top of the package. They also include care instructions.
These lightweight, fun earrings make the perfect everyday accessory for readers, teacher, writers, and other word-y types. Each set contains a word or phrase pairing or easy-to-understand symbols. Earrings are hand stamped using hammers and steel stamps, rather than engraved by machine. This hand process means that there will be some slight variations with the letter placement and alignment. All earrings use sterling silver ear wires, which are a preferred metal for many with metal sensitivities. Stamped metals include sterling silver, steel, copper, and a tin-based metal alloy. Retail Packaging: Earring sets may be packaged individually or kept in a secure display case in a retail location. Either option includes a card with care instructions.
Handmade Christmas tree ornaments are available annually August-December. Ornaments are typically not individually packaged (except by request) and best displayed on a tree or similar store fixture.
