In addition to a bunch of spring craft shows, we've been busy adding retail partners. A couple of months ago, West Elm invited us to participate in the West Elm (WE) Local program. WE Local partners with artists and makers that sell products that WE customers might like. It helps connect WE to the communities where they do business, and helps artists and makers expand the reach of their products. Its truly a win-win! We got to know one of our WE store by selling our kits during one of their pop-up events. WE employees have been amazing. They really want their store to be a part of the community and they genuinely want to see local makers succeed. After a couple of pop-ups the WE Baltimore, the store manager recommend us for WE Local, which enables WE stores in our region to buy and sell our kits wholesale. You can now find a selection of our kits at West Elm Baltimore and West Elm DC!
We are so thankful to WE for working with small businesses like ours. Having WE as a wholesale partner has helped us to connect with other wholesale buyers. By June our kits will be in three new shops - one in Frederick, MD, another in Chesapeake, VA, and one in Denver, CO!
If you have a shop and are interested in carrying our modern paint by number kits, shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), We'd love the opportunity to work with you.
