Due to the overwhelmingly awesome response that we have gotten from our contest, we have observed that all of you are just as excited about unique knitting/spinning items as we are! Because of this, we thought we would come back and ask for your help again (this may not be the last time, lol). If you know of an independent pattern designer, someone who makes handmade buttons, drop spindles, baskets, anything fiber related...we would like to give every small business, no matter how small, an opportunity to sell their product in a storefront. The time to order is almost upon us now that our store is coming together physically. We have contacted the big fiber vendors already, but in doing that we have realized how much the small business person gets lost in the shuffle. So, before we order from the big companies, we would love to give all you indie suppliers out there the first chance. Bear in mind, however, that we are on a budget for our first orders and probably for awhile until we get ourselves established, so we really need competetive wholesale pricing. Here are the things that we are looking for, so if you know of someone or if you can fill this need yourself, please leave us a comment!
Knitting patterns of all kinds
Crochet patterns of all kinds
Unique purse handles
Coffees & Teas
Anything else that you can think of that I haven't listed here :)
Thank you in advance for your help on this. If you know of anyone who specializes in these areas, please send them our way!
