Yesterday I took the plunge into becoming a wholesale yarn supplier. My little local fabric/yarn store is now going to be carrying several varieties of my hand dyed yarn, as well as some of my handspun.
She put in an order yesterday, which I will deliver on Saturday. We’ll see how it goes, over the course of the next couple months.
Wholesale obviously doesn’t pay as much to me as selling retail on my own, but it balances out because I don’t have to do the whole photographing/listing/advertising/shipping thing that I would if I listed all these skeins individually on Etsy. (But I am still going to be on Etsy!) And a large check all at once will be nice, too.
Eek! Me! In a yarn shop!
