“This was an amazing course!” “Now I know what I need to do before signing up for a show.” Everything was presented clearly and the information was fast-paced. I never lost interest.”
These are just a few of the rave reviews from artists attending ALL ABOUT WHOLESALE, the one-day, intensive seminar for artists who want to sell wholesale to shops and galleries. Now the course is back with two locations:
* Philadelphia Gift Show on Saturday, July 21 in Oaks, PA. *American Handcrafted Orlando Show on Wednesday, September 5 in Orlando, FL
Developed and taught by CRAFT, this course covers everything you need to know about selling wholesale. Bring your handcrafted business to the next level, and save hours of frustration and tons of money. ALL ABOUT WHOLESALE gives you a step-by-step approach for organizing your business, pricing your products, and developing the materials you need to be a pro!
The class is open to handmade newcomers and veterans who need a refresher for today’s competitive marketplace.
