“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 this summer in conjunction with the Philadelphia Gift Show on Saturday, July 21 in Oaks, PA.

Developed and taught by CRAFT, this course covers everything you need to know about selling wholesale. If you want to bring your handcrafted business to the next level, this course will save you hours of frustration and tons of money. ALL ABOUT WHOLESALE will give you a step-by-step approach for organizing your business, pricing your products, and having the materials you need to be a tradeshow pro!

The class is open to handmade newcomers and veterans who need a refresher for today’s competitive marketplace. Complete details and registration. For questions, email us, .

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn both the basic fundamentals as well as the tips and trade secrets for success in the wholesale marketplace.
