ALL ABOUT WHOLESALE
We are proud to announce a new educational offering from CRAFT. It is designed for artists who want to take their handmade craft business to a new level by selling wholesale. To be a successful wholesaler takes dedication, effort and a ton of knowledge, and this course is specifically designed to give the artist both knowledge and a helpful network.
CRAFT has developed a one-day, intensive course, All About Wholesale. It is taught by experienced buyers and wholesale artists and covers every aspect of the wholesale world. The course will be offered in conjunction with two tradeshows:
The Seattle Gift Show at the Washington State Convention Center on Friday, January 19, 2018, and
ACRE PHILADELPHIA, the American Craft Retailers Expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday, February 16, 2018.
We are presenting a full curriculum covering everything from market preparedness, to product pricing, booth know-how, and most importantly, getting the sale!
