Wholesale Updates

Last year, all I wanted in the world was to have wholesale accounts to sell to. It would be great to ship out a whole bunch of stuff at once, and then get a big check for it. For some reason, it was really hard to find stores that wanted to carry glassware at first. Over the year though, we've added quite a few awesome shops to our list!

Just this past month, we've gotten swamped with new requests from stores (and coffee shops!) across the country. I'm thrilled that there are so many brick and mortar stores supporting handmade businesses! It makes me even happier that they'd like to support mine.



The only problem is that these orders are wiping out all of our holiday inventory that we've been stocking up on. I've already hired our first independent contractor to help us out, and there may be more in our future. Even so, we've had to change our wholesale ordering policies and cut down on the products that we're able to make. We also decided not to accept any new wholesale accounts until we can reevaluate our situation in the springtime.

If you've ordered from us in the past, and would like to restock for the holidays, please download our latest order form here. If you own a shop, and want to add our products to your shelves for the first time, we'd really appreciate it if you contacted us in the spring. If you just can't wait that long, we can work out a discount for you, but we won't be able to give you our standard wholesale prices.

We'll be adjusting our wholesale policies and prices again in the new year, as soon as we're able to catch our breath!

how exciting!

Good to know you guys are setting limits too.. not letting the business run you.

Yeah, we're trying to set limits. It's hard though, since most of these things are new to us! And, inevitably, someone always ends up unhappy. I do prefer when we're not the unhappy ones though...
