Makers Gotta Make
As the owner of a small handmade business, you're busy. If you're fortunate enough to do it full-time, you're extremely busy. You probably spend more hours on social media and marketing, managing finances, ordering supplies, shipping orders, updating your website, packaging goods, and participating in festivals than you do making the thing you make. Time and time again, makers turn to wholesale to grow their business in a sustainable way. Getting into stores across the country gives your brand cache and your wallet cash. But with wholesale, there are catalogs, linesheets, emails, follow-up emails, a separate wholesale webstore, and now you have bigger orders to fulfill. You're growing and you're wondering whether you should hire a rep or start courting a distributor, but you don't feel you're quite ready for that step. Well, hello there friend. It's timely to meet your acquaintance. We're the Quaintrelle Society. Let's talk about how we can help.
We are a hybrid. our portmanteau would be salestributor.
We sell for you, but not in that snake-oil-ketchup-gloves-euphemistic way. We cultivate relationships and hand-pick our shops and makers carefully. We take the role of representative of your brand seriously. However, we also take the role as a store's source seriously. Our makers meet and agree to branding and professionalism standards. As a member of our society, you'll be in good company. And that is attractive to retailers who are tired of wading through part-time crafters and seas of goods that don't match their aesthetic. We consider ourselves the cute indie boutique that sells online to the cute indie boutique.
we open doors
We will get your brand in new stores. Really awesome ones. We are proud of the service and representation we offer to artists, but our strength is in sales. We offer unrivaled convenience for boutiques to shop handmade. No distributor, no sales rep, not Etsy Wholesale, or any other site offers this selection of handmade goods, all under one online roof, with easy minimums, simple payment & invoicing, and searchable features that help retailers. We also work with makers & shops on collaborations and exclusive merch. By making it easy for retailers to shop, we make it easy for you to sell.
risk-free & only pay when you sell
For our native, invited members, we are offering a free membership in our society. You can cancel your membership at any time. You only pay a percentage based fee, when you sell. Read more about how our fees are structured and the nuts and bolts of our expectations.
