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 is being held in conjunction with ACRE Philadelphia, on Friday, February 16, the day before the show opens to the trade. That way, attendees can see the show during set-up, spend a day covering important topics, and if they wish, stay on to walk the active show floor opening day.

We are presenting a full curriculum covering everything from market preparedness, to product pricing, booth know-how, and most importantly, getting the sale!

To see the entire course outline as well as registration details, click here.

The course will be held at the ACRE show site, the Philadelphia Convention Center, and hours will be 9:30 -5:30. Exact room number and details will be shared closer to the date. For more info, email info@craftonline.org.
